Customer Question

I am an Irish citizen and recently got a letter from an irish solicitor saying that they will pursue me for $200,000 dollars on foot of a final deficieny judgement obtained against me in the state of Florida. I was always of the opinion that this was not possible. Has someting changed.

What makes you believe that they can't pursue the matter here in Ireland?

Hi Ronan,


I am of the opinion that a deficiency judgement obtained in the US is not enforceable in Ireland as their is no bilateral agreement in place between the countries how then would you be able to go through Irish legal proceedings.


However if this was Europe(I had a loan in England) I am aware that this judgement could be enforced.
