Have you received a Yuill and Kyle debt letter?

Ignoring a court order can lead to enforcement action, including the use of bailiffs. So it’s best to avoid legal proceedings when possible.

Check your debt isn’t statute barred first!
Before asking for proof, you might want to check that the debt hasn’t become too old to be collected in the eyes of the Scottish courts. Many Scottish debts become too old after five years, as a way to stop the courts from becoming overrun with old debt cases.
When a debt is too old to be collected, you can inform Yuill and Kyle that this is the reason you won’t be paying. Be aware that this doesn’t automatically mean the debt is written off, but you can ask for it to be wiped.
