I do know how difficult it can be to chase business debts. Getting a CCJ awarded against a debtor in the UK is no gurantee you will ever see the money. For small sums it is often more trouble than it is worth. You cannot get blood out of a stone, however that is not relevant OP posed the question regarding people with assets not

If bad debt is a continuing problem for you, I would suggest using one of the many firms who specialise in international debt recovery. http://www.dormane.fr/us/

It was regarding the huge increase in debt here due to the economic crisis.
I have heard about a charge being put on someones house if they are unable to pay their debt which I guess would be in force untill the property was either sold or the debtor dies. In either that could be a very long time and therefore would the debt increase from interest or whatever.
There is no such thing as this in the UK so just curious as to how debt is handled here in comparison.
In some cases the debt stays with the house - even when it's sold!

A friend bought a car some 2 years ago, sold it when she went back to England. When the new owner went to register it, he couldn't unless he paid all the outstanding debts.

These debts were from several owners previous and were for unpaid SS contributions. The debts had been placed on the only viable piece of 'property' that he then owned. Strangely it had not come to light when my friend re-registered the car to her name (worrying, how can one find out if any debts are owed??).

Couldn't agree more but even they get it wrong sometimes - as in this case.

A call to trafico and all was sorted but it just shows what could happen.
