Can you collect debts that are more than 6 years old?

The limitation period for collection of debts is 6 years from the date the debt became payable and after that time they may become statute barred.  This means that the debt is no longer recoverable, including by legal action in the courts. Whilst the debt might not be recoverable through the Court, we can still send the debtor a letter to try to collect these amounts owed to you on your behalf.
