Getting and Using Admissions from Your Debtors
Can you use your debtor’s admission in court?
Are admissions good evidence?
What qualifies as an admission?
An admission is a statement from the debtor conceding that he or she owes you money. An admission may be full (“I owe you all the money you claim”) or partial (“I owe you some of the money, but dispute the balance.”) The admission can come in a number of forms, including an oral statement, for example: during a meeting or phone call, in writing such as by letter or email, or in a repayment agreement you negotiate, or implied by the debtor’s actions such as sending you partial payment on your bill.
Getting the customer to admit owing the debt isn’t always easy. It can be the next best thing to actually getting paid as long as you handle it right. When your debtor admits that he or she owes you money, you can:
- Use the admission in court to help prove the debt.
- Remind the debtor of his or her previous admission if he or she tries to raise the same excuses for delaying payment later
"It defies logic for this Honorable Court to proceed with a case when the Defendant has admitted his liability,” says Barbara Muller-Wilson. We’ll do everything we can to help you succeed in your case!
