This article provides an overview of the recovery system involved in dealing with outstanding debts in such deals, including the initial recovery phase, considerations for legal action, and collection rates and fees.

  • Initial recovery phase includes sending letters to debtors, skip-tracing, and contacting debtors for resolution.
  • Legal action consideration involves assessing the possibility of recovery and deciding on litigation or standard collection activities.
  • Collection rates vary based on the age and amount of the debt, with different rates for accounts placed with an attorney.
  • Deciding on legal action requires upfront legal costs and a choice between proceeding with litigation or standard collection activities.

Recovery System Overview

Initial Recovery Phase

The Initial Recovery Phase is a critical juncture in reclaiming outstanding debts in prefabricated construction deals. Within the first 24 hours of account placement, a multi-faceted approach is launched. Debtors receive the first of four letters, while extensive skip-tracing and investigations are conducted to secure optimal financial and contact information.

Daily attempts to engage with the debtor are made, utilizing a variety of communication methods including phone calls, emails, and texts. This aggressive contact strategy persists for 30 to 60 days, aiming to negotiate a resolution.

If these efforts do not yield results, the process escalates to the next phase. The transition is seamless, with the case forwarded to an affiliated attorney in the debtor’s jurisdiction. The focus remains on resolution without delay, ensuring every possible avenue is explored before considering legal action.

Collection Rates:

  • Accounts under 1 year: 30% (1-9 claims) or 27% (10+ claims)
  • Accounts over 1 year: 40% (1-9 claims) or 35% (10+ claims)
  • Accounts under $1000: 50% regardless of claim count
  • Accounts placed with an attorney: 50% regardless of claim count

Legal Action Consideration

Once the decision to pursue legal action is made, the financial implications become a critical factor. Upfront legal costs are required, typically ranging from $600 to $700, depending on the debtor’s jurisdiction. These costs cover court fees, filing fees, and other related expenses. Should litigation prove unsuccessful, clients are not held liable for further charges from the firm or affiliated attorneys.

The choice to litigate is significant, not only for the potential recovery of outstanding debts but also for the incurred costs and fees. It is essential to weigh the financial risks against the likelihood of successful debt recovery.

Our firm offers competitive collection rates, which vary based on the age and amount of the claim, as well as the volume of claims submitted. Here is a succinct breakdown of our fee structure:

  • For 1-9 claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 30%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 40%
    • Accounts under $1000: 50%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%
  • For 10 or more claims:

    • Accounts under 1 year: 27%
    • Accounts over 1 year: 35%
    • Accounts under $1000: 40%
    • Accounts with attorney involvement: 50%

These rates are designed to align with the complexity and effort required to recover different types of debts. It is crucial for clients to understand these rates to make informed decisions about proceeding with debt recovery actions.

Collection Rates and Fees

After understanding the initial recovery phase and considering legal action, it’s crucial to grasp the financial implications of debt recovery. Collection rates and fees are pivotal in determining the cost-effectiveness of pursuing outstanding debts.

Our competitive collection rates are tailored to the volume and age of claims. For instance, accounts under one year incur a 30% fee, while older accounts are subject to a 40% fee. Smaller debts under $1000 or those requiring legal action have a 50% collection rate. Volume discounts apply when submitting 10 or more claims.

It’s essential to weigh the potential recovery against the associated costs to ensure a judicious decision.

Here’s a succinct breakdown of our standard rates based on claim characteristics:

Claims Submitted Age of Account Collection Rate
1-9 Under 1 year 30%
1-9 Over 1 year 40%
1-9 Under $1000 50%
10+ Under 1 year 27%
10+ Over 1 year 35%
Any With Attorney 50%
