UAE Debt enforceable in UK?

  • UAE Debt enforceable in UK?

    we all know what that stands for!) the following:
    • DCA's have no legal powers (this I do know)
    • The debt is unenforceable in the UK - unless the debt has been 'acquired/purchased' by the DCA (as far as I know UAE banks do not sell their debts to foreign entities)
    • These UAE foreign 'debtors' lists are presented to the DCA's debtors' country of origin, as a 'Percentage Recovery Fee'

    To get the ball rolling peeps - Are the UAE debts enforceable here in the UK, if so, how?


    Love to hear your thoughts!

    Debt is like any other trap, easy enough to get into, but hard enough to get out of.

        I have had a look at the threads - nothing conclusive, unfortunately.

        Thanks all the same though!

              Are there any updates on this thread. Just received a letter yesterday from IDRWW who have links to CWD. Will they go all the way to CCJ or even bankruptcy? If they do go ahead I don't really care about either. I'm drowning in UK debt anyway so this will just send me over the edge.

                        Limitations are 15 years in UAE and they can enforce UAE up to 15 years via an arrangement with the UK.

                        Sadly previous recipients of these letters from various DCAs and solicitors don't tend to come back and let others know what happened in their case, so it's tough to know what happens beyond receiving these letters. Personally I think ignore unless there's a court order already (eg a judgment in the UAE they can apply to enforce here) or a formal letter of action pending bringing court proceedings.
