What is the process fro Turkey Debt Collection?
In Turkey, our judicial system is part of civil law, so many of our laws are very similar with the law systems of Germany, Switzerland and Italy. So there is no jury system, one or three judges conclude lawsuits in case of dispute.
Our main way to solve disputes between private persons is to file a lawsuit. However, we have to apply mediation phase first before filing a lawsuit in labour issues and commercial disputes.
For debt collection, main way is to send execution order to counter party via execution offices. If your receivable is not derived from the court order or cheque and promissory note and thecounter party objects the execution order,
then the execution proceeding will be stopped and we need to file lawsuit for the cancellation of their objection. But if they don’t object, the execution order will be finalized and we have a right to seize their bank accounts, movable and immovables until we collect the all receivables.
Can late payment fees / interest be added to claims
You need to pay fees first when you want to enter judicial process. In case the court order ends up in your favor, counter party has to pay the fees and you can also add the interest of your claims when you push into default counter party with warning letter or/claim/execution order.
Details on legal service / process in Turkey
The judicial system in Turkey is working slow (i.e. the finalization of lawsuits takes approx. 2-3 years) due to the quantity of lawsuits especially in metropolitan regions and number of officially qualified staff.
There are many obstacles, legal gaps and frequent law amendments in Turkish Legislation, so when you need to take any legal action, you should retain a lawyer to handle the whole process.
There are many unique requirements to recovering international debts in Turkey which differ from the UK and therefore it is very important that cases are handled directly by our our expert international debt collection agencies and not from the UK. This method of international debt collection sets Creditreform aside from the competition who in many cases try and recover debts from a UK office only. Using local offices and partners enables us to achieve a far greater success rate and our No Win No Fee service together with competitive commission rates against monies recovered only ensures you get the best service.
