Further Drop in Court Actions
10 December 2012

Statistics published by the Scottish Government showed a 13% drop in actions raised in Sheriff Courts in 2011-12 as against 2010-11. The number of debt related cases dropped by 11% in the same period and have showed a significant drop of 39% since 2008/09. Further details can be found in Civil Law Statistics in Scotland 2011-12

The statistics do not themselves provide any reason for the drop. Court action can be a time consuming and expensive process and it may be in times of recession that creditors are pursuing other methods of recovery. Court action can still be a cost effective method of recovery and AMA’s pre-court investigative processes can help to avoid throwing good money after bad.
