What is a court summons
You will receive a summons if you haven’t paid the debt you owe as agreed in a payment plan. We will have already sent you a reminder and final notice before taking this step.
A summons is a legal notice to start official debt recovery proceedings against you. You will need to do one of the following:
- Agree to pay the debt in full. You will not need to attend court and as long as any future payments are made no further action will be taken. Contact us to make payment arrangements.
- Agree to pay the debt using a formalised payment plan, you will not need to attend court. We will apply for a liability order which enables us to recover the debt if you do not pay. Contact us to make payment plan arrangements.
- Attend court to dispute your liability for the debt.
