In cases where an amicable outcome is not reached, legal proceedings have to be initiated.

In most cases, initially, a payment notice is sent to the debtors. If the debt remains unsettled, the debt collection lawyers will contact the debtor and convey the terms of the recovery following appropriate discussions with the creditor. This follows the correct legal framework to accelerate the recovery of the debt. The measures are taken to ensure that the recovery process does not lead to any lawsuits and that debt is recovered as soon as possible.


What if the debtor fails to clear the debt?

In cases where an amicable outcome is not reached, legal proceedings have to be initiated. Usually, a legal petition is filed in the UAE Courts to recover the outstanding debt. Once the petition is filed, the court will send a demand letter to the debtor to clear the outstanding debt and the late payment fees within 15 days.


If the debtor cannot repay the debt within 15 days of receiving the demand letter from the court, a trial is initiated against the debtor. The court will then help the creditor with the debt recovery. Trials regarding debt recovery also allow the creditor to claim additional compensation.



It is important that the attorneys involved in the process engage with their clients at every step to ensure they can recover the debt hassle-free and time-efficiently.


What are debt buyers in the UAE?

Debt-buying agencies buy outstanding debt from UAE creditors. Creditors can sell debts that are yet to be recovered fully to such agencies for a certain percentage of the total outstanding balance. The debt-buying agency then has the responsibility to recover the debt from the debtor.


We can help credit providers decide whether or not selling debt is the right choice for them. Our vast experience in the industry has made us well aware of the entire debt collection procedure in the UAE. Our expertise can help creditors make decisions that ensure cost efficiency and legal compliance.
