Protecting commercial interests in the collections process

The process of collecting missed payments and owed balances from Florida customers can be frustrating for New York companies. If your business is struggling with how to collect on delinquent accounts or you are unsure of your creditor rights, it could be imperative to find out how to protect your interests. There are various legal options available to you.

There are remedies available for creditors seeking to collect money from customers. Some of these options do not require court intervention, yet others do. Due to the complexity of this process and specific regulations that can differ from state to state, it can be helpful to work with a knowledgeable legal professional on these matters.

Your self-help options 

There are some options available to you that do not require court intervention. The simplest of these options is simply reaching out to the debtor and requesting payment. If your effort is not successful, it may be then be appropriate for you to turn the account over to a collection agency. While attempting to collect the money owed to you, these agencies must adhere to the Fair Debt Collections Practices. 

Other options available to you 

If self-help remedies are not effective or not in the best interests of your business, you will find it helpful to explore other options available, which may include the following:

  • Court proceeding against the delinquent account holder
  • Secured transactions, which give creditors a claim to debtors property
  • Replevin action, which has similarities to the garnishment process
  • Lawsuits against the debtor or liens on his or her property 

It is prudent to be aware of the benefits and implications of all of your choices. Many companies outside the state find it prudent to work with professionals experienced in debt collection in Florida and creditor's rights.

Someone to listen to your goals

Protecting commercial interests through the debt collection process requires both experience in this specific legal area and close knowledge of the law. Your company will find great benefit in working with an organization that understands your rights as an out-of-state creditor and knows how to protect your commercial interests within the confines of applicable Florida laws.

A complete evaluation of your situation can help you understand why it is important to seek guidance and support from the very beginning of the collections process. This step can allow you to develop a plan best suited for your goals and the financial benefit of your company.
