My question is, I made some property investments in the USA which have now turned bad and I find myself in debt, can the USA lenders come after me for the outstanding debt though the UK courts.
System of Law: Other
I have engaged a USA attorney who is dealing with the lenders as this was a USA debt I assumed it would be dealt there, the lenders have, or appear to have engaged a uk firm of solicitors to act for them. My USA attorney has communicated with the UK firm but the lenders appear to be coming from both USA and UK side of the legal frame work.
Do you have any ideas, thank you
