Understanding the Rights of a Creditor
As a business, every time you give your service to a customer, they become indebted to you. They are obligated to make payment to you, so in the event that they do not make a payment, you will likely take the appropriate measures to collect the payment owed to you.
Likewise, as a creditor or lender, every time you give your services (or money) to a consumer, they will become indebted to you. The consumer will then have the responsibility to make regular payments – whether it be for a home, loan, car, or other property. If they do not make a payment or default on a loan, you will want to make sure that you are adhering to fair debt collection practices.
Take the Right Steps to Enforce Your Right to Receive Payment
The parameters for a “fair” debt collection are listed in what is known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Many businesses will choose to hand off their debt to a collections agency. These types of agencies are exclusively focused on obtaining payment.
There are many legal ways in which you can obtain payment from those who in debt to you:
- Make a secured transaction with the debtor
- Make an attempt to take the debtor to court
- Place a lien on a property
- Seize property and sell the property to pay back for losses
- Place a wage garnishment on a debtor’s earnings
- As a last-resort scenario, a creditor may sue for the collection of the debt
Whatever method you take as a creditor, you will need to make certain you are in compliance with all laws to ensure you receive the money that is owed to you. Retain the help of a professional who can help guarantee that you are getting your payment legally.
It is important to note when you are attempting to collect that you may also be competing with other collectors who are attempting to do the exact same thing. At our firm, we can help represent your best interests and ensure that you are not lost in the shuffle. You can trust in the experience of our firm.
