  • Advice

    A judgement summons is an order for an individual who owes money (“debtor”) to another individual (“creditor”) to attend court. The intention is that an order will be made concerning the repayment of money owed. The judgement summons must be served on the debtor no less than 14 days before the hearing; this can be made in person or sent via postal service. You may be able to stop a creditor from taking you to court if you agree to a payment plan with them.


    Necessary documentation

    Before a creditor can take you to court to collect a debt, they must send you the necessary documentation. If they have not, you may be able to challenge the claim. The majority of credit agreements are covered by the Consumer Credit Act. If this is the case the creditor must follow the necessary steps before taking court action. Note that if your agreement is not covered by the Consumer Credit Act, the creditor does not have to send you a default letter. They are still however required to send you a letter of claim and a claim pack.
