My husband and I leant money (as angel investors for property) to a couple who we were introduced to by our friends. We were very naive and stupid, our friends said that this person will not let us down, they only needed a short term loan as waiting for a refinance to come through whilst wanting to buy another house. Anyway to cut a long story short, they have defaulted on the loan, they paid part of it back but still owe £14,500. I want to use a solicitor to issue a statutory demand and then bankruptcy as one of them as a Director in his own business. Has anyone done this and been successful, and if so can they recommend their solicitor? Many thanks Gwen

Hi thank you very much. I have had a solicitor referred to us however he is £300 an hour (as he is a partner). He has looked at the documents and suggested we can pursue and go for statutory demand and threaten bankruptcy. The cost is £900 plus VAT, plus £114 for an agent to pay for delivering the letter. He is also very busy and I had to chase him twice which makes me think that our debt is fairly low as a colleague I know is using him to chase a debt of £50,000.I will follow up with your recommendation Vanessa. I do not want to just write the debt off because it makes it all too easy for these individuals, as I have read here beware if someone offers you unusually high returns ie % payment per month is 15%.I have only done this once and got 8 or 10% interest. I can use the money I have received for interest payments against the costs of some legal work.
Hi I am thinking of using Anthony Gold Solicitors to recover a debt of £14,500. Has anyone had experience of using them and how has it gone, I know that they are Property Tribes legal partner.
Thank you, Gwen
