Debt collection charges


I’m using a debt collection agency to recover debt from a tenant who has now moved overseas. The agency charges 25% if they are able to collect the debt from the tenant. Is it possible for me to add this 25% on to the tenant’s debt?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Think so. You should be covered with all the fees related to recover the debt.

Check your contract most of tenancy agreements will state you can collect. I just got mine back from my tenants.
