Who is Hilton-Baird?

specialises in collecting debt on behalf of third parties, the ones that claim that you owe them money. Collection companies operate by purchasing previously uncollectible debt at a greatly reduced price or working off of a percentage of the amount of money collected. Either way, they are not profitable if they don't collect money. Therefore, they will continue to pressure and annoy you until they get paid.

Hilton-Baird has been in business since 2001 and works with all types of businesses and financial institutions. They are primarily based in the UK but have other locations throughout Europe. The contact information for their UK headquarters is as follows:

What Should You Do if Contacted by Hilton-Baird Debt Collection?

If you get a letter or phone call from Hilton-Baird debt collection, do not ignore it. Do not think that by not answering, they are going to forget about it. They won't! Here are some things you can do:

  • Contact Hilton-Baird, either at the above contact information or from the information contained in your correspondence or phone call.
  • Ask questions. Since Hilton-Baird is collecting for a third party, find out who the client is and ask for original invoices, statements, or whatever information is backing up the claim for payment.
  • Let Hilton-Baird know how you want to be contacted in the future. If you do not want calls, let them know and they must abide by that as long as you give them an alternate method of contact.
  • Determine if the debt is yours. If the collection is being made in error, dispute the charges with all the available information available.
  • Find out if the debt is statute-barred, usually over six years old.
  • If the bill is yours, and you can afford it, pay it as soon as you can. Dragging on collections does not benefit anyone, and you may be hit with late charges and penalties.
  • If you cannot afford to pay, and the debt is yours, you may be able to set up payments with Hilton-Baird to take care of the debt over time. You may also want to look at consolidating your debt through an IVA (individual voluntary arrangement.) With an IVA affordable payments are made for a fixed amount of time, and any balance is written off after the time is completed.

What Can Hilton-Baird Do if I Do Not Pay?

If you ignore Hilton-Baird's attempts for collection, they have several things that they can do, such as the following:

  • Continue contact, and escalate in penalties and frequency.
  • Add on additional charges such as interest and penalties.
  • Take you to court, where additional repossessed charges can be incurred.
  • Through a court order, your wages can be garnished or possessions repossessed.
