    If the communication from the borrower is before the 6 years (5 years in Scotland) and admits that the money is owed to you then the 6 year clock is reset at that point. Does that help?

      Not sure what you mean by this.
      If it's a simple money claim, imho the 'Small Claims' track (up to £10,000) would most likely be allocated. (Presuming of course it's not SB)
