What is the debt collection process in Honduras?
The process starts with a Notice sent directly from the Attorney’s office, offering a Settlement option and as a way to avoid Court Expenses and Fees.- If the Notice is not attended, then a Lawsuit may be filed, using the document support that the Creditor may have.- A formal Notification is made through the Court, to allow for the Debtor to pay or contest the claim; if contested, the procedure will require the PROOF to support the origin of the Credit and the default of the Debtor.
Average length of time to collect a debt?
The Court process shall take at least SIX (6) months, starting on the Date of the Court notification. The most complicated aspect of the collection is usually the location of the Debtor; several times We’ve been trying to locate a Debtor that, at the end, has closed operations or simply gone away.
Can late payment fees / interest to be added to claims?
All Obligations that are in default are subjected to compensation (interest) and that shall be added to the original debt. A standard SIX PERCENT (6%) interest is estimated by the Court if there is no other compensation agreed between the parties and supported with documents.
