What Happens if I Don't Respond to Zenith Debt Recovery?

While getting badgered by collection calls from can be nerve-wracking, they must not be ignored. Debt collectors may take further legal action against you, including taking you to court and obtaining a County Court Judgment (CCJ) order. When they do, you'll receive a letter in the mail that notes:

  1. The total amount of the debt that CCJ is trying to collect
  2. One or more payment options
  3. A deadline for making a first installment payment and/or payment in full
  4. Contact information for where to send your payment

When a debt collector obtains a CCJ order against you, it will appear on your credit report for six years, no matter how long it takes you to pay the debt off. The CCJ will lower your credit score and may affect your ability to obtain credit cards or financing.

Once a CCJ has been issued, Zenith Debt Recover can pursue their debt further through an:

  • Attachment of Earnings
  • Bailiff action
  • Charging Order

An Attachment of Earnings is a legal order that mandates that your employer deduct a portion of your money from each paycheck that will go to satisfy your debt.

A bailiff action allows bailiffs to come to your home and remove some of your assets to satisfy your debt. However, under a bailiff's action, bailiffs may not remove:

  1. Children's belongings
  2. Household goods
  3. Tools or vehicles necessary for you to go to work

A Charging Order is another type of legal order that allows a debt collector to secure their debt against your home. If you don't pay, you could lose your valuable possessions and your home. Further, a debt collector may use a Charging Order to ask the court to force you to sell your house to pay what you owe

While these are worst-case scenarios, they can occur if you don't make payments and don't respond to Zenith when they reach out. By doing so, they will assume you have no intention of paying the debt and will use these more aggressive options to obtain the money they're charged with recovering.

We would recommend reaching out to them but do not commit to an arrangement right away. Weigh your options as debt collectors will often try to work out a payment plan with you so they can get their money back.

Has Zenith Debt Recovery Violated My Rights?

While debt collectors like Zenith Debt Recovery can contact you via phone, mail, and in person, there is a list of things they cannot do to recover the debt you owe. These include:

  • Adding additional costs and fees to the original debt beyond a maximum of 8 percent interest
  • Calling you at work
  • Contacting you before 8 am or after 9 pm or on weekends or holidays
  • Enter your house without your express permission
  • Pretending to have the legal authority to take additional actions to secure the debt
  • Reaching out to you via social media
  • Send bailiffs to your house
  • Share your debt with friends or family members
  • Threaten you

If a debt collector takes any one of these actions, they are in violation of the law. However, many people don't report these violations because they feel frightened or guilty about owing the debt.

They also may have difficulty determining exactly what to do and to whom to report these actions. As a result, some unscrupulous debt collectors continue to get away with these abusive and threatening tactics.
