The legal fees involved in these actions can be extremely high; a recent case which saw parents intervening in a property sale to prevent their estranged daughter-in-law benefitting from the sale of their sons house following a divorce ended up with the parents losing and paying over £380,000 in legal fees. Evidence from legal experts who specialise in family property disputes supports the Quanta Capital findings, with some reporting a three-fold increase in similar litigation... Read More

It is important that you take time to choose your debt collection agency carefully to ensure you receive the appropriate level of service you require to solve your business debt problems. Our top tips when choosing a debt collection agency: 1. Are they... Read More
