What Happens if I Don't Pay My Debt to Hamptons Legal?

Not paying your debts that you legitimately owe to Hamptons Legal is not a situation you want to be in. Once the company has begun trying to collect your debt in earnest, you'll need to respond sooner or later.

If you ignore collections from Hamptons Legal (assuming the debt is legitimate and collectible), you could be making a bunch of trouble for yourself. Not only will non-payment fees start to add up, the company would be within their right to escalate things. After waiting long enough without response from a debtor, debt collections companies will take a person to court to compel them to pay.

If you're being contacted by debt collectors, ignoring it won't help. What you should do is:

  1. Verify the debt in question.
  2. Decide whether you're going to dispute it and why.
  3. Decide whether you're going to pay in full or set up a payment plan with the collections company.

Alternative Ways to Resolve Debt Collection Issues From Hamptons Legal

Paying Hamptons Legal may not be your only option. There are a number of situations that could get you out of paying what they're demanding.

Verify the Debt

In some situations, you may have a company trying to make you pay a debt that you've already paid or never belonged to you. If this happens, one quick thing you can do to ensure the company has the right to bill you is to force them to verify the debt. Verifying the debt makes them double check the amount you owe, and will immediately force them to reconsider if the debt isn't valid in some way.

FCA Complaints

Complaining to the Financial Conduct Authority can be an effective avenue to take if you believe Hamptons Legal or their people have violated your rights. There are strict rules about how debt collectors can go about collecting debt. One common law they violate is regarding harassment, as debt collectors are known to send an inordinate number of calls and messages through the post hounding people for money.

If you think you have a case, file your complaint to potentially have your debt erased or the terms of collection changed to be more in your favor.

How Long Can Debt Collectors Collect Debt From Me?

Because of the Limitations Act 1980, debt collectors only have six years to collect your debts before it is no longer valid. This means that, if you have not been contacted about paying a debt until after six years since it was first incurred, Hamptons Legal cannot legally compel you to make payments. Remember that this only applies if you've never made payments or acknowledge the debt prior to this. If you did, the debt will still be pursuable after the six years are up.
