Lawsuit for debt collection under the lease agreement

Lawsuit for debt collection under the lease agreement

Lease agreements are an important element of modern business. However, not always all participants of such agreements comply with their obligations. If you are faced with a situation where the other party to the contract does not fulfill its obligations and owes you a debt, a debt collection lawsuit may be a necessary step to restore your rights.

In which court can such a lawsuit be filed?

A claim for debt collection under a lease agreement can be filed with the local commercial court. This is important to consider when considering a case, as the rules and procedures of different courts may differ.

Why can you lose in court if you act without a lawyer?

Even if you have some legal knowledge, filing a lawsuit on your own can be dangerous. The trial process is complex, and even the smallest mistake in drafting documents or carelessness in presenting evidence can have negative consequences for your case.

The main mistakes when filing a claim for debt collection under a lease agreement

  1. Incorrect determination of the jurisdiction of the case:
  • The plaintiff may file a lawsuit in the wrong court, which will lead to a delay in the consideration of the case or the return of the statement of claim.
  • It is important to correctly determine the jurisdiction, taking into account the amount of the debt, the place of residence/stay of the defendant and the location of the property.
  1. Unclear wording of claims:
  • The plaintiff must clearly state the exact amount of the debt he wants to recover, as well as what other recoveries are involved (interest, penalty, inflationary losses).
  • Unclear wording may result in the court not being able to satisfy the claim in full.
  1. Lack of necessary documents:
  • A number of documents confirming the validity of the claims must be attached to the claim:
    • Lease agreement;
    • Acts of acceptance and transfer of property;
    • Evidence of payment/non-payment of rent;
    • Calculation of the amount of debt;
    • Other evidence relevant to the case.
  1. Improper processing of evidence:
  • Evidence must be properly prepared and meet procedural requirements.
  • Deficiencies in the presentation of evidence may lead to their recognition by the court as inadmissible.
  1. Missing procedural terms:
  • There are clearly defined terms for filing a claim, as well as for taking other procedural actions.
  • Missing these terms may result in the loss of the right to sue or the annulment of the court decision.

To avoid these mistakes, it is recommended to seek the help of a qualified lawyer.
