Purpose of Payment
Payments are made through Debtcollect.ie for the purpose of paying outstanding monies being handled by Ivor Fitzpatrick & Company’s Debt Recovery Division. If you are making payments through this portal you will have received correspondence from Ivor Fitzpatrick & Company Solicitors quoting a reference number. This correspondence will have made you aware of who is claiming that the monies are due and that it is for the benefit of the ultimate creditor that payments are made. If you are unsure of who monies are being paid for the benefit of or dispute that the amount is due please do not use the payments portal and contact Ivor Fitzpatrick & Company Solicitors to discuss your concerns on 01 6787000 or at [email protected] .
Application of Payments
When making payments through the payments portal on Debtcollect.ie you should quote your reference number correctly when prompted. This will enable Ivor Fitzpatrick & Company Solicitors to recognise your payment and allocate it to the correct account. Failure to quote your reference can lead to difficulties in allocating payments correctly. If you are unsure about the reference please contact 01 6787000 to discuss the matter before making payment or email [email protected] .
- Your payment will take a minimum of 3 working days to reach the account to which you are making a payment. This includes time to verify your debit card details with your debit card supplier and for payment to be notified to Ivor Fitzpatrick and Company.
- We cannot accept liability for a payment not reaching the intended account due to an incorrect account number being quoted.
- We cannot accept liability if payment is refused or declined by the debit card supplier due to a failure to quote incorrect card details or for any other reason.
- If the debit card supplier declines payment, Ivor Fitzpatrick and Company is under no obligation to bring this fact to your attention. You should check with your debit card supplier that payment has been deducted from your account.
Should there be any need for a reversal of payments please contact Ivor Fitzpatrick & Company Solicitors on 01 678 7000 or [email protected] quoting your reference number.
