Finland has a distinct debt collection procedure as every state. Two stages are involved in debt recovery from Finnish debtor. These are extrajudicial procedures and judicial procedures.
- Basics of Extrajudicial Procedure
In the extra judicial procedure, we tend to avoid court intervention as it is both expensive and time-consuming. During this stage, lawyers contact the debtor to demand your money. This may be done through calling or writing to the debtor. This then leads to a payment arrangement and mutual decision of payment time. If the debtor fails to pay, then the last step of the extrajudicial procedure is announcing the legal proceedings as a warning.
- Judicial Procedure
Usually, as a result of it, debtors often resort to paying. But if they don’t then you need not worry about as a legal procedure can follow through.
In judicial debt collection, a court intervenes. Before that our lawyers can make you aware of the entire circumstances, the likelihood of your winning against the debtor, and also of the potential costs on the case. We will never proceed to a court without your permission so knowing everything in advance will give you an upper hand later.
European Order for Payment proceedings
The European guidelines regarding payment proceedings include that European Order for Payment proceedings can be commenced in case of an undisputed claim between two parties. This applies to countries that are EU members. It will be your lawyer’s assessment according to the case you need not worry. The procedure goes by the creditor submitting a form by which the court issues a claim that the debtor can accept or deny in 30 days. If the debtor does not respond the case automatically makes the payment final.
There are advantages to this procedure such as being inexpensive and speedy. But at the same time, one has to bear in mind the disadvantage that is if the debtor disputes it then the proceeding ends. With nothing achieved from this procedure, the creditor may opt civil proceeding which is both expensive and time taking. But again it is all up to you how you want to go about the situation.
