Late Payment Charge

Numerous statements, reminders and even the std legal threat letter failed so i adopted Steve’s tactic of the £40 late payment fee, to be waived if the guy paid up aaaaand…he still ignored me!

I picked up the forms to begin the CCJ procedure and then spotted this thread so contacted Direct Route online, i heard no more and forgot about it until this morning when they called to tell me that the full amount, including the £40 late payment fee, was in their office and would be sent out tonight – Happy days!

I hope that doesn’t come back and bite you. The late payment legislation only applies to transactions between businesses. You’ve levied an illegal charge on him and then demanded payment via a debt collection agency.

I won’t tell if you don’t though.
