The timescales for  recovering debts can range typically from  an immediate response after our letter of claim ( within 14 days)  to obtaining judgement after proceedings have been issued and enforcement action taken (3-4 months).

These timescales are  dependent on factors such as how busy the Court service is,  whether we are able to resolve the matter by agreement without resorting to Court proceedings, and whether the Debtor engages with us or obliges us to follow full due process to recover the debt.    If  recovery of the debt becomes particularly complicated the case may take longer to resolve.

An up to date list of court fees is available here.
