The incoming Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims (PAP) will apply to any business (including public bodies) claiming payment of a debt from individuals (including sole traders) and details the conduct the Court will normally expect from parties (both creditors and debtors) before commencing proceedings.
The PAP represents the biggest change in the debt recovery landscape since the Woolf reforms on pre-action behaviour, with a significant additional burden on creditors for compliance in terms of information, paperwork and delay, as well as engaging with debtors.
This webinar will explore the parties affected by the new Protocol, review the requirements for compliance and consider the sanctions for non-compliance. Particular consideration will be given to the precautions which should be taken when providing paperwork, handling the Reply Form, case law surrounding admissions and insolvency and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).
