Your letter clearly explained.
Who is the Bailiff?
The judicial officer is a public official, appointed by the Crown. His official work includes summoning persons to appear in court, the so-called summons. And he executes court judgments and restraining orders. A judgment or injunction states what you must pay, and why you have been ordered to do so.
To make sure that you do not ignore that judgment or restraining order, someone has been appointed to exercise any necessary coercion. And so that’s the bailiff. If the judgment or restraining order is not complied with, he can seize, for example, your salary or benefits, your house or its contents. Thus, your debt will then still be paid.
It is also the bailiff’s job to clearly and clearly show you the way and tell you the best thing to do and not to do when you have received a summons, judgment or restraining order.
Exhortation or summons
If you have received a reminder or summons from us, you are still in the so-called amicable phase. This is the phase with the lowest cost. This letter stated that you must pay an amount including our collection costs. Through this website you can pay in pay at once or in case you cannot pay a payment plan request. If you have any questions about this letter please also contact us. If you have paid the claim and collection costs after our demand or summons, the case is thereby settled.
You have not paid the reminder or summons previously received. Therefore, you will receive a subpoena from us. A subpoena is a letter indicating that you are being summoned to appear in court to be heard on our client’s claim. Read below to see what else you can do?
Funded legal aid
You may be eligible for (partially) funded legal aid. The Legal Aid Board can give you further information on this. For more information, visit: www.rechtsbijstand.nl
You have received a judgment. In the judgment, the judge ordered you to pay. The court may have imposed other obligations or prohibitions on you. The judgment has been delivered (served) to you by the judicial officer to notify you of the judgment and the sentence contained therein. In addition, the bailiff will summon you to comply with this judgment. If you do not voluntarily comply in this, the law offers our principal the opportunity to force compliance from you. If it is a monetary debt, for example, your income, bank account or assets may be seized. Read below to see what else you can do?
You have been ordered by the court to pay. You have received a judgment from us explaining this. After receiving this judgment, you did not pay. Therefore, we have now taken other measures. The letter you received from us describes what we did. Below is more explanation:
Notice of eviction
If you have been ordered by a judge to leave the house where you live, you have been served with an eviction notice. This means leaving your home. Below you can read how this works and what you can still do.
