Tracing an Absconded Debtor

Posted on

Unpaid Debts are a never ending problem for Businesses and individuals who provide goods or services. One of the biggest headaches is when a debtor absconds without paying their debt causing additional stress to the unwitting creditor.

We all know that the cost of a non paying customer can itself cause large problems such as your own ability to pay your bills too. So it is essential when you have a ‘gone away debtor’, you act to take steps to trace their whereabouts. Some people may think this can be an expensive and painful process but it need not be.

For landlords. the problem of tracing tenants can be restricted by getting a guarantor at outset. For Business to Business transaction, Limited companies will always have a registered office for communications but dealing with sole traders and LLP’s can provide a tricky problem.

As part of your standard credit control, for sole traders it is highly recommended to obtain a home address as part of the credit application process. We have seen many cases where the proprietor of shop for instance may have the name John Smith. Well John Smith is a very common name and if the shop closes for whatever reason, it presents a real problem to locate the home a address of ‘John Smith’ as they may be hundreds in any given town or city.

These basic acts of diligence will rarely be called upon but it always pays to be on guard against individuals who do not want to pay their debts. Whatever the problem, whether it is tracing tenants, absconded individuals, non paying CSA parents, sole traders etc we have the solution.
