Debt Collections

David Poole heads up the firm’s debt collections department which has over 20 years’ experience. All staff are actively involved with all of the collection matters on behalf of clients.  We adopt a hands-on approach and are also pragmatic about assessing the chances of the recovery of the debt.

Our department specialises in a wide range of legal recoveries including doctors & hospital accounts, outstanding school fees (public and private) right through to corporate debt recoveries like rental arrears and evictions. David and his staff are fully conversant with all the legal requirements of the National Credit Act, Consumer Protection Act and the current amendments to the Magistrate’s Court Act which have presented serious challenges to the recovery of debt. Our department has adapted to overcome these obstacles in order to maintain the high level of success.

If you would like us to help, call or email debtrecovery@austensmith.co.za to schedule an appointment. You may even qualify for our contingency recovery option, with no up-front fees!
