Team at Roston Carlyle Rojas Lawyers specially Varun Gupta, Brendon McKenzie and Maisie Taylor are great professionals with competent and outstanding skills. From the first meeting with Varun Gupta, we got assured that we are with right people and they proved it. No doubt they are most recommendable team of professionals. Throughout the process they kept us updated and were available all the time for any questions or concerns. We will again contact them and recommend to my friends and network.

Mysa was completely competent from start to finish, she seamlessly guided us through the legal process and was very informative, no question was too small. The RCR Lawyers team was there with us from the beginning to the end and helped us achieve closure with a positive result and for that we are extremely grateful.

Upon meeting with Varun, I never doubted that he’s certainly a brilliant solicitor and true enough, with all the things he did for us, he really surpassed our high expectations. He is very responsive in everything and even to a small detail. He is very professional that he would give an honest advice and direct answers to all our questions and enqueries. He never left us especially in a critical situations (yes, there were a lot of circumstances but Varun fixed them for us) but actually, he stayed with us up to the last minute of the day or until to settle everything that we need to do. Thank you Varun for helping us to buy our first home!!!

My partner and I went through these guys for a complicated partner visa case after being referred from a lawyer friend. After being told by other lawyers that it was either easy or impossible, these guys told it like it was, realistic (they also had the same fees as the others). Peter and Shanalee were with us the whole way to provide guidance and 2.5 years later we are happy to receive the news that the partner visa has been granted.Thank you for all of your hard work guys.All the best.

Benefits of being a secured creditor

A secured creditor enjoys a distinct advantage when it comes to debt collection. When you are a secured creditor, you have a legal claim to specific assets or property belonging to the debtor as collateral for the debt owed. This collateral acts as a safety net, ensuring that you have a higher chance of recovering your debt even if the debtor defaults on their payments. In essence, being a secured creditor provides a layer of protection that significantly reduces the risk of non-payment.

Secured vs unsecured creditors: What is the difference?

The fundamental difference between a secured creditor and an unsecured creditor lies in the presence of collateral. A secured creditor holds a legal interest in specific assets or property, which can be used to satisfy the debt if the debtor defaults. On the other hand, an unsecured creditor does not have this level of protection. Unsecured creditors rely solely on the debtor’s promise to repay, making their position riskier in case of default.

Steps you can take to Recover Debt

Create Clear Agreements

When entering into a lending or credit agreement, ensure that the terms and conditions clearly outline the collateral being used to secure the debt. This transparency is essential to protect your interests.

Registration of Security Interests

Depending on your jurisdiction, you may need to register your security interests with relevant authorities. This step is crucial to establish your legal claim to the collateral.

Review Credit worthiness

Assess the creditworthiness of potential debtors before extending credit. A thorough evaluation can help you make informed decisions about whether to secure the debt and what collateral to require.

Consult Legal Counsel

Seeking legal advice can be invaluable when dealing with secured debt. Legal experts can help you draft secure agreements, navigate the legal requirements, and protect your interests.

In conclusion, understanding the distinction between secured and unsecured creditors, along with the benefits of being a secured creditor, can significantly enhance your chances of being paid promptly and in full. By taking proactive steps to secure your debts and protect your interests, you can minimize the risks associated with lending and increase your financial security.
