Greenhalgh Kerr fees

If the other party disputes the claim, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary.

Different rates are available for multiple referrals of debts.

Generally, our fees include:

  • taking your instructions and reviewing documentation
  • Undertaking appropriate searches
  • Preparing the claim for issue
  • If appropriate entering judgement in default
  • Advising on and arranging for the issue of appropriate enforcement action

Matters normally take 4 – 12 weeks from receipt of instructions to payment of the debt. This is on the basis that the other side pays promptly on either receipt of a letter before action or receipt of judgement in default. If enforcement action is needed, the matter may take longer to resolve.

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business

We are confident in our work and we know that recoveries is a key part of a lender or creditor’s business. We have designed our pilot projects to give lenders and creditors the comfort and confidence in our service before formally and fully switching recoveries providers. This time also allows new clients to benchmark our service levers and results against existing providers and others.

How it works


You choose 10 recoveries cases

You choose 10 recoveries cases to get us started. We’ll deliver our usual onboarding protocol where we’ll get to know you and your systems, culture, methods, preferences, and requirements.


We get started

We assess each case by setting a strategy then grading and reporting on the case in terms of prospects and timescales and cost. We make immediate contact with debtors, and pursue a recovery in our tried and tested ways.


We review

We deliver ongoing, structured, tailored reports as per your needs and carry out a full 3-month review on these 20 cases. There we’ll discuss how we have worked together, patterns we have seen in your borrowers, your systems, your documents, your pre-legal conduct, outcomes, highs and lows, legal costs (and costs borne by debtors), and possible improvements in all of these.


No strings

We carry on working in this way until all cases have been concluded. You are then free to carry on your discussions with us or to use the experience and market intelligence gained by working with us in the future.

Lenders and creditors have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by engaging with us on a pilot project.
