During the amicable phase, it’s very important that we have an acknowledgement of debt signed by the debtor. Because this allows you to obtain an injunction decree with provisional enforcement. Another possibility is to ask the debtor to issue a title (cheque or draft) when we agree on a payment plan. If the title is protested, we can start legal action and avoid the first phase of the legal action (injunction decree), thus reducing time and costs. We can also obtain the debtor’s mortgage registered through a contract with a notary, if we have found out about the debtor’s real estate.
