Court and Home Examinations

Our office has experienced staff able to attend Examination Hearings to all courts between Caboolture and Noosa. Court examinations are conducted in all Courts on a regular basis, providing our Clients with a comprehensive view of a debtor’s current financial position. We use these opportunities to meet the debtor’s face to face to encourage the debtors to put forward a responsible installment plan, offer to settle or pay out the debt.

Experienced in debt collection our team know the questions to ask and what to look for to enable a positive result for the Creditor. A new service we have found is of great assistance to our Clients is the Pre-litigation Home Examination. These are conducted at the debtor’s home and give Clients a snap shot of the Debtor’s true position. The Home Examination is an excellent tool to make a more informed decision as to whether to spend more valuable collection dollars on issuing legal action that has little likelihood of success.
