UK Debt When Moving Abroad
The idea of moving abroad to escape debt seems to be more of a common practice these days. People with failed businesses or swamped in debt seem to think moving abroad will give them a fresh start, free from debt and allow them to build a new life.
It became obvious after reading some of the comments on various UK debt forums that there is divided opinions on this. Some people think running away from debt is too much of a risk, and believe the creditors will eventually catch up with the debtor, whilst others encourage the idea, stating that there is no way debtors will be found and seem to encourage people to move on and enjoy a new life free from the responsibilities of debt.
In the past this might have been a successful way to start a new life without the worry of unpaid debt. However, creditors and courts alike seem to have caught up with the idea over the last few years and have taken action to make it more difficult for people to escape the responsibility of repaying outstanding debt.
Creditors taking action
Some countries, such as Germany and Canada, have reciprocal agreements when it comes to tracing debtors and debt collection practices. There is not an awful lot of information regarding which countries have reciprocal agreements and which do not. Could it be that creditors do not want people to become too clever so have not made it common knowledge? However, a search around the World Wide Web might disclose a few more countries with these agreements.
A reciprocal agreement in the UK means a UK Court can enforce a CCJ (County Court Judgment) using the legal system of the other country. If there is no such agreement in place, a creditor can sell a debt to the relevant country where the debtor resides and debt recovery procedures will commence under the law of that land.
Tracing a debtor
The resources available to creditors nowadays when it comes to tracing a debtor are vast. Although the resources in other countries may be limited, there are still ways and means of finding people, especially once the creditor finds out which country the debtor has moved to. A creditor may have their own department in that country, or relations with other credit companies in that area.
Creditors can also try a tactic or two to locate someone's whereabouts. They may go to the last known address, talk to the neighbours, family friends or relatives who could unknowingly tell them of the person's whereabouts. Once they know which country the debtor is in, their job is made much easier.
Using an ATM card in another country shows us how easy it is to get information from a UK account abroad. If we can do this so simply, what other information is able to zip round the world almost instantaneously?
Having resources to trace a debtor or having agreements with other countries, or even the possibility of selling the debt to an agency in the appropriate country does not automatically mean that a creditor will be successful in tracing a debtor. In some cases, people do get away with it. It is however a risk for anyone considering moving abroad to avoid debt. A creditor has a period of 6 years from the last time a person acknowledged a debt to use the legal system to recover monies. However, if a creditor has taken legal action on an account, the debt can be legally recoverable indefinitely. This means that someone could start a new life abroad and work hard for the assets they accumulated, only to find a few years down the line that a creditor has traced them! This could mean everything they have worked for is put at risk and could be taken from them to repay their debt.
What are the Options?
Many people who move abroad who are struggling to keep up with their repayments may not be aware of the free financial help available. They do not even need to telephone the UK, as there is free advice and help available on the web, just a quick email can put someone's mind at rest and make them realise they are not alone.
There are companies such as FCL Debt Clinic, who can offer a free financial assessment and advice. FCL Debt Clinic can also refer clients to a Debt Management Company who charge no fees and can help negotiate affordable monthly repayments on their clients' behalf by setting up repayment plans with their creditors. Anyone with a UK bank account or the use of one for transferring money, with UK debts, can be helped. This way, the ever-present worry of whether a debt is still around is no longer there to haunt someone.
