The team oversees the activities carried out by external recovery agents throughout the recovery process.

The original creditor claims that my debt position has been regularized
It often happens that the original creditor, at the time of the purchasing, record the regularization of the position in the accounts and therefore the telephone operators report a zero amount due.
In most cases, this does not mean that the debt has been discharged for the debtor, but rather that it has been closed and passed through as a loss for the original creditor. The debt will still be deemed collectible unless proof to the contrary is advanced by the original creditor.

How can I close my practice?
Debt repayment can be agreed upon with the debt collection company or law firm. These companies will submit to the client a settlement agreement that complies with the autonomy given to them and corresponds to what was previously agreed upon with them. The agreement will have to indicate the payment terms, timing and amounts agreed upon and, once signed, will constitute a binding commitment for the parties. The settlement agreement will entail the suspension of any enforcement action put in place or contemplated, for the entire duration of the same.
Failure to timely fulfill the obligations assumed in the agreement may imply its termination at the sole discretion of the company with the consequent right to proceed even judicially for the recovery of the balance of the debt originally owed in addition to further expenses arising from the default. Non-performance is defined as a recurrent late payment on several installments, not necessarily consecutive, or even of one installment if more than 10 days overdue from the due date.
I paid what was agreed. How can I make sure that I have closed the debtor position?
We advise our clients to keep copies of both the signed settlement agreement and the individual payments made. As an additional guarantee for the client, once the last agreed payment has been made, it is possible to request a letter of release directly from our company attesting to the full performance of what is owed and the consequent extinction of the debtor position.
I cannot pay because I have no restitutionary capacity; what can I do?
Our goal is to facilitate the return of our clients as much as possible. In order to define the best solution, we invite you to make direct contact with the company in charge of handling your debtor position.
