About C.I.A. Debt Recovery 

New Zealand owned and operated debt collection service that was established in 1993 with a focus on specialising in tenancy debt recovery.

Their mission is to deliver the most comprehensive and cost efficient professional debt recovery service to the industry. With over 25 years of experience in tenancy debt recovery, they have the networks and can utilise various resources to assist with locating tenant debtors.

Their commission is based on the principle that no collection means no commission. They only deduct their commission from your debtor’s repayments. This means if they do not get a successful recovery, they do not collect their commission, this gives them a real incentive to achieve a successful debt recovery for you. Depending on your Terms of Trade, they can recover the total debt with no commission cost to you.

Various pricing options are available for you to choose from. See the Pricing Options  page.

If your debtor refuses to repay your debt voluntarily, they have the knowledge and resources to take civil enforcement action through the Courts and in most cases, they will cover the Court costs of the first enforcement for you.
