Panel of Attorneys

Our trusted panel of attorneys ensures a professional, legal approach when dealing with individuals that ensures a simple transition from the collection process to legal action.

Our cost-effective legal route includes credit bureau listing and obtaining an emoluments attachment order against a debtor’s salary through registered field agents. Specialised field agents visit debtors to collect their signature on 57/58 documents. A Section 58 judgment is granted, and an emoluments attachment order is issued simultaneously and implemented against the debtor’s salary.

Issuing Summons Against the Debtor

The following cases will include an issue of Summons against a Debtor when:

• A debtor denies verbal demands or letter of demands for a debt

• Debts that have an indefinite amount of money

• Damages that have risen due to individual negligence

• Cancellation of sale due to defective goods

• Cancellation of sale due to unmet performance based on the agreement
in terms of service contract and/or mandate agreement

Once a summons is served the defendant may either agree/disagree to pay or give the notice to defend the action.
In the latter case, the sequence of events will commence as follows:
