The pre court action letter will show your tenants how serious you are about collecting the rent. It can also be used as a warning against damage to property, complaints from neighbours, late payments, historic arrears and any other serious concerns you have.
In many cases, sending the letter is enough to recover debt.

Here is a list of debt recovery services available:

Please note, I try my best to keep the information up-to-date, but you should read the T&C’s from the service provider’s website for the most up-to-date information.

If you decide to use a rent recovery service, it’s important to fully understand the terms and conditions of their service! Get a clear idea of their fees, and ensure it’s written in writing.

Many debt/rent recovery services offer a ‘No win, no fee’ service, so if you decide to use one of them, get a clear definition of what a ‘win’ means. Generally speaking, if they achieve a ‘win’ it will cost more than if you were to use an ‘pay upfront’ service (that also achieves a ‘win’), so that’s something to bear in mind.
