In previous posts, we described the work of paralegals and collection agencies. Are there other legal entities that can help you collect debt?
Third Parties – Creditors will sometimes have factoring companies or someone they know or have a
relationship with call or write the debtor. This could be a friend, an accountant or maybe just someone
who is very experienced in business.
What can a third party do?
Not much unfortunately. If they are not a collection agency or part of the legal profession under the Law
Society they are not allowed to make collection calls or go to court for you. Not only that but it may
make matters harder when you finally do hire a paralegal or lawyer.
Next week: I have a collection problem – What do I choose? A lawyer or paralegal?
