Debt Collection

If you are owed moneys for goods provided, services rendered, moneys lent and not repaid, arrears of rent or, if moneys are owed to you for some other reason, then you may wish to consider the debt collection options which are available to you.

Some debt collection options include:

  • Issuing letters of demand to the debtor;
  • Negotiating repayment arrangements with the debtor;
  • Commencing an Application for a Minor Civil Dispute – Minor Debt at the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal;
  • Depending on the amount owed, commencing a Claim against the debtor in the:

-  Magistrates Court; or
-  District Court; or
-  Supreme Court

Strict time limits apply for instituting legal proceedings against debtors so we recommend you should obtain advice about your debt recovery options without delay.
