Debt collection lawyers in Bulgaria

What is meant by out-of-court-proceedings in detail?

To avoid long lasting and event. unsecure court proceedings we will undertake all to come to a payment of your debtor without need of court proceedings. All our efforts to hit that target we call prejudicial or out of court proceedings.

Out-of-court-activities regularly involving to investigate the actual address and financial standing of the debtor, sending a dunning letter with a deadline for payment (within 8-10 days), correspondence with the debtor in written and by telephone, negotiations concerning an instalment agreement (if recommendable). Further on we check for information at different sources like trade register, internet databases, commercial agencies and resident’s address registration office.

In principle, we always start the debt collection process with the extrajudicial phase.  At this stage, we try to avoid the need to go to Court. We will contact your customer to demand payment. Germany protects its debtors, which means that it is not possible to take action against debtors easy.

Comparing the european countries, there are fewer extrajudicial debt collection options. During the extrajudicial phase, we have the following options in Bulgaria:

  • Written demand letters and phone calls: We send the debtor a
    Legal Services, Tenders & public procurement lawyers

    Tenders & public procurement lawyers

    written demand letter and contact them by telephone, requesting that they pay your claim within a few days, together with interest and costs;

  • Announcing legal proceedings: the most powerful manner of putting pressure on your customer is the announcement that you are going to start legal proceedings. Usually, this announcement convinces them to effect payment. That is why it is advisable to promptly engage the services of a debt recovery lawyer, who can announce such proceedings on your behalf.
  • This way, you prevent an unnecessarily protracted debt recovery process.

If your debtor refuses to pay during the extrajudicial phase, after discussion with you, we can go to Court. We will always provide you with information in advance regarding the potential costs, and we only proceed with your permission.

As the Bulgarian legal system is particularly debtor-friendly, there are more stringent requirements for legal proceedings. The Bulgarian Court demands that you demonstrate a valid claim. In Bulgaria, we have the following options to litigate against debtors:

  1. Enforcement letters procedures is an accelerated procedure for undisputed claims. Within a relatively short period of time, you can obtain an Enforcement Order; which orders the debtor to pay both your claim and the costs of the proceedings. Your debtor has only a few weeks to challenge this. If that does not happen, then the order for payment becomes legally binding and we can commence enforcement proceedings, such as seizure of the debtor’s bank account or sending a bailiff to recover the debt;
  2. Ordinary civil proceedings: This may be the suitable procedure if your claim is disputes, however, our Bulgarian debt collection lawyers will always be able to advise on the best solution for your claim. Both parties must present documentary evidence to support their position. After one or more hearings, the Court will render a decision. If the court enters a judgment in your favour, and the debtor still does not pay, we can use this to enforce your judgment, for example, by seizing the debtor’s bank account. Settling the matter prior to judgment always remains an option;

European Order for Payment proceedings in Bulgaria:

  • In the event of an undisputed claim between two parties based in EU Member States (except Denmark), it is possible to commence European Order for Payment proceedings. The debt collection lawyer handling your case can assess whether this kind of procedure is suitable in your case.
  • For European Order for Payment proceedings, the creditor usually completes a standard form and submits this to the Court. The Court is obligated issues a European Order for Payment. The debtor then has 30 days to state whether they object to the claim. If there is no response within the 30-day period, you may ask the Court to make the order for payment final (called a “declaration of enforceability”). This is a valid and enforceable judgment which is accepted in any Member State (except Denmark). The European Order for Payment is never appropriate for disputed matters (so not in cases where there is an argument about the invoice). The advantage of this procedure are speed and low costs (some Member States don’t even charge a court fee), but the disadvantage is that if it becomes disputed, the procedure comes to an end and an ordinary civil procedure will have to be started if the creditor wants to continue.

You can count on us when there is a need for the preparation of:

  • Legal procedures & documents before the Bulgarian courts and authorities (certificates, powers of attorney, notary instruments, notices, etc.).
