An individual was owed just over $8,000.00 from another individual. My client died before the debtor paid the amount that was owing. I was retained by the executor of the estate to collect the amount owing. The debtor did not respond to written demands made for payment. Accordingly, I issued a small claims court claim which was properly served on the debtor (now called the Defendant). The Defendant did not defend the Claim and I was able to obtain a judgment for the full amount owing plus interest and costs.
