Horten assists with the forced sale of all types of real estate. This applies to private clients such as banks and mortgage-credit institutions as well as public authorities and insurance companies whose claims are often pre-preferential.
We have wide experience advising on specific problems pertaining to auctions, for instance questions concerning VAT, chargee's accounts, construction on leased sites and properties in possession of the mortgagee.
We advise a large number of municipalities on the collection of property tax arrears and other pre-preferential claims. We have developed a special IT system ensuring a thorough process where all cases are reviewed in an automatic work flow that requires a minimum of man-hours on the part of the municipality.
With a file extract from the municipality, the case is registered automatically in our IT system, and via a web service solution from KMD, the information from the municipality will be validated and updated every day. We therefore receive daily updates on arrears directly from KMD, which is a very resource-saving solution at the municipality, and it ensures that we have a general overview of the municipality’s outstanding account with a debtor. In addition, the cases are updated with the following information on a regular basis:
- Kreditvagten (credit watch service)
- Debitor Registret (debtor register)
- RKI (credit rating agency)
- Tinglysning (land register)
- LIFA - property information
- The Danish Official Gazette.
Our technical set-up, where all cases are reviewed in an automatic work flow, ensures the most correct and cost-effective case handling for the municipalities.
