Money, Claims and Recovery

Bad debt is a modern world reality affecting individuals and business of all sizes. While there are stringent laws in the UAE that avert the occurrence of such bad debts, recovery of unpaid debt can be lengthy hurdle. Where it feels that the debt is not recoverable from your end, hiring a law firm is the first logical step to initiate the process of debt recovery.


To mitigate the risk of contracting a bad debt, before entering in a transaction, make sure that you:


1.  Establish Credibility: Checking the debtor’s legitimacy and market reputation goes a long way. To protect your debt, you must also find out about his prior professional connections in the industry.


2.  Maintain proper documentation: We have encountered many instances of unpaid debt where the clients lack the necessary paperwork to support the debt, such as payment receipts, written contracts, or debt acknowledgments. It is usually advisable to retain sufficient documentation on hand to protect your rights in any possible future dispute.


3.   Secure your payments with cheques or other instruments: It is advisable to secure any future monetary obligation, with cheques or other instruments. You may encash or enforce such cheques to recover the outstanding debt on maturity date. Furthermore, it will be safer and faster to take legal action to enforce a dishonored cheque.


Despite taking above mentioned precautions to reduce bad debts, we cannot completely rule out the possibility of ending up in one. To deal with circumstances like these, we are here to help.
