Debt Recovery Services
Debt collection agencies are the most common providers of debt collection services. And different debt collection firms use varied methods and solutions to successfully recover debt. Debt recovery specialists work in debt collection, which is the process of recovering bad debts or delinquent amounts owing to the debt recovery agency’s clients. A large proportion of creditors seek the help of a debt collection firm after attempting to recover debts on their own and failing to do so. Debt collection may appear to be challenging and complex, but we make every effort to assist our clients in recovering their debts. Our recovery procedure is valuable, and it is founded on the principle of “No recovery, No pay.” We will only collect a service charge from the total debt that has been recovered after we have completed several processes to assist you in recovering your debt. We help clients collect debts owing under loan agreements, negotiable instruments, promissory notes, and for items sold and delivered. We regularly sue business owners and other third parties who refuse to honor personal guarantees of corporate debts. Our practice concentrated on civil litigation, particularly commercial debt collection. In issues involving commercial litigation, debt collection, and the enforcement of creditors’ rights, our company has extensive expertise representing businesses, banks and other lenders, landlords, and a variety of other creditors.
When a debt collection agency is hired, the debt recovery procedure is less burdensome and more effective. We are a debt collection agency with a comprehensive understanding of the behavior of various Nigerian businessmen, which allows us to devise numerous ways to ensure that your money is recovered. This is why we are devoted to using every legal tool in our power to help you recover your debt. Among the services we provide are:

Information about Debt Recovery is required:

- The debt’s duration or age
- A copy of the evidence demonstrating the contract’s terms
- A copy of any debtor’s acknowledgement email or letter in which he/she/it affirms that he/she/it will pay the debt.
- Any disagreements between you and the debtor could benefit the debtor by allowing him to escape liability. Supplying poor goods, having items arrive late, or having goods with erroneous specs are examples of such challenges, although some of these allegations may not be factual on the debtor’s behalf. In order for us to be able to counter them, you must disclose them to us.
RECOVERY OF DEBT UNDER THE STMA ACT
Nigeria recently passed a new law making it considerably easier for creditors and debt collectors to collect past-due money from borrowers. If there is an agreement in place between the creditor and the debtor stating the terms of the contract, the Act allows creditors to exercise their right to collect the amount owing without going through the courts.
If the credit transaction you signed with the borrower was covered by the Secured Transactions in Movable Assets Act, 2017, all you have to do in the event of a borrower’s default is give the borrower and the grantor written notice of the default and intent to repossess the collateral. You have 10 days from the date you sent the notice of default to either take ownership of the collateral or declare it inoperative. If the grantor agreed to release ownership without a court order in the Security Agreement, you can reclaim the collateral either by legal process or without it.
For amicable collection enforcement, creditors might show the agreement and confirmation statement to the police in the debtor’s location. With an agreement in place and documentary evidence, the prospects of recovering the debt are virtually 100% in the event that legal action is initiated. That is why it is critical to have a strong credit policy in place.
You might then proceed to request help from the Nigeria Police, who have power within the area of the debtor’s collateral if recovery without a court process is not possible. On presentation of a copy of the applicable security agreement and a legally verified confirmation statement, the police will assist you with the peaceful repossession of the collateral. If you plan to sell the collateral to pay off the debt, you must do so in accordance with the Act’s rules and without prejudice to the borrower’s, grantors, or another creditor’s right to redeem the collateral before the sale.
OUR DEBT RECOVERY STRATEGY
In delivering third-party debt collection services, we use the following six debt recovery processes:
- A deal with our customers
The first step in our debt collection process is to meet with our clients, either remotely or in person, to establish an agreement on the methods and techniques that will be used to achieve successful debt recovery.
- The debtors are served with a demand notice.
After the customer has submitted all of the debtors’ information, we send out a demand notice to each of them, informing them of the situation. This will be communicated via printed letter or email.
- Notifying the debtors by phone
Following the delivery of a demand notice to the debtors, the next step is to phone them and inquire about their plans for repaying the debt owed to our clients.
- Keep in touch
We follow up on the phone calls by contacting them frequently and using various pressure tactics to guarantee that they pay the amount outstanding.
- Notification of the deadline
We will issue an ultimatum notice to the debtor once the previous four steps have been completed and there have been no signs of positive or progress from the debtor’s side. The ultimatum notice will mention the amount of time he or she or it has to pay back the debt.
- Authorization of the law suit by the client
If the debtors do not answer after receiving a deadline notice, we should seek our client’s permission to file a lawsuit.
- Send it over to a solicitor
We shall employ the services of the solicitor in our company to our client’s advantage after acquiring the client’s approval for a law suit.
- A judicial decision
We are confident that the legal judgment will be in our client’s favor during the court process.
The only alternative after the legal judgment is to recover all of your unpaid obligations from the borrowers.

DEBT COLLECTION ‘S MOST DIFFICULT OBSTACLES
In The Collection Industry, There Is Little Regulation.
In Nigeria, collectors are not required to be licensed to collect. As a result, unscrupulous people and methods have flourished in the country’s collecting sector. Nigeria is increasingly in need of corporate regulation.
There is no legislation governing liquidation and debt collection in the private sector, other than the Bankruptcy Act, general winding-up provisions under the Companies and Allied Matters Act, and the current Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria Act.
Other legislation will eventually follow the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria Act, which founded the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria to settle non-performing loan debts of banks.
We can assist you with recovering money in Nigeria without jeopardizing the integrity of your company. For a fair but firm collection strategy, our collections offices adhere to the highest ethical, professional, and customer service standards available.
Tracking down debtors and resolving accounts in Nigeria is challenging due to poor record keeping in both private and official registries.
Many agencies still keep information manually, making it difficult to find new information. Basic information like name, contact information, and payment status may be wrong, and many regulations still store information manually, making it difficult to locate new information.
Furthermore, there is no single record of the people who live in Nigeria.
Some firms have recently attempted to implement record-keeping training in-house, and the government is beginning to move away from manual record-keeping methods and toward new computerized record-keeping methods. However, there is still more work to be done.
