Moriarty Law Debt Collection might be harassing you with their debt collection practices. See how you can get debt help with DoNotPay.Is Moriarty Law Debt Collection constantly ringing you at home? Does it seem like their pursuit of payment of a debt is relentless? When you owe money and your original creditor or lender has sold your debt to a debt collection agency, the calls, letters, and home visits can seem overwhelming. In the UK, debt collection practices are tightly regulated according to debt collection laws. While debt collectors have the right to do what it takes to collect a debt, you have rights as well.
If your original lender or creditor does not believe that it is possible to collect on your debt to them, they might seek the services of a debt collection agency. When a debt collection agency purchases your debt, they do so by paying your creditor a small percentage of the amount you owe. Once they own the debt, they will do what it takes to make a profit by getting you to make your payments to them. Debt collection agencies are required to comply with regulations administered by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and other trade associations.
Debt collection agencies are required to treat you with respect. They are not allowed to harass you or target your vulnerabilities. To do so is a violation of your rights. If Moriarty Law Debt Collection is violating your rights, DoNotPay can help.
What Even Is Moriarty Law Debt Collection?
From the company's name, you might think that Moriarty Law Debt Collection is a group of solicitors. Their only business is debt collection. The Moriarty Law Debt Collection is a debt collection company, They specialise in collections of debt from a variety of businesses including council tax, mobile phone companies, gas and electricity and catalogues.
Of the various debts they buy, they carefully choose which ones will be the best cases to litigate using analytics. The company claims to be a legal practice specialising in "pre-litigation and legal recoveries and enforcement services".
There have been numerous claims against Moriarty Law of bullying tactics and threatening communications. While they claim to be customer-focused and willing to help, they are clearly all about the profits. They also seem to focus on getting cases to court. They do make payment arrangements if you communicate with them, but their representatives do try to come across with more legal power than they actually have.
Unless there has been a court order, Moriarty does not have the power to appoint your wages. They are not bailiffs. They do not have any greater legal power than any other debt collection agency that pursues debt cases prior to the litigation stage.
What Are the Stages of Debt Collection?
There are various factors to both the pre-litigation and litigation stages of a debt collection action. There are three primary stages of debt collection: Pre-Litigation, Litigation and Judgement Entered.
During this stage, Moriarty Law will contact you with a demand to pay a debt.
At this stage, you can:
- Agree that you owe the debt.
- Seek debt advice by submitting a financial statement proving that you cannot settle the debt in full.
- Require further information showing proof that the debt exists.
- Submit a query as to the legitimacy of the amount owed.
Moriarty Law will not add further costs to the balance due during the pre-litigation stage. From the time of the first letter they send to you, they give you 30 days to respond to the letter and resolve your debt. They will work with you towards a payment arrangement if you require more time.
When the litigation stage begins, you will be issued a County Court CLaim and Response Pack directly from the County Court. The courts will give you 19 days to pay the debt once the case has been issued. At this time, extensions are available if you need more time as long as you communicate with Moriarty Law.
At this stage, you can admit to all or part of the debt and offer a repayment amount. If Moriarty cannot grant you the extension you request, you will need to submit the Admission Form to the courts. The inclusion of a financial statement is required with the form. Moriarty Law will submit the repayment proposal to the client for acceptance.
If you contest the claim of money owed, you can complete the Defence Form which gives you the opportunity to tell the court why you believe the claim is false and to submit any evidence you have that proves it. Once a Defence Form is submitted, the case becomes a defended case and further directions must come from the Courts. If the matter is unresolved at this point, the courts may order a hearing before a District Judge. If the judge finds in favour of the client, you will be liable for the amount of the debt and additional court costs. A County Court Judgement (CCJ) is then entered into your credit file. If the judge finds it in your favour, the claim is dismissed and the court costs are paid by the claimant.
Once a CCJ has been issued, the courts will specify whether the balance of the debt is to be repaid in full or through instalments. If the payment arrangements are not met, enforcement may be taken.
Enforcement can include:
- Attachment of your Earnings
- Warrant of Control
- Charging Orders
- Writ of Control
- Bankruptcy Petition
