I've got a friend I owe a five figure sum to.

 

 

We've not really spoken about it much because he knows my situation (ie poor)

 

 

I don't think he's got any doubt I'd pay him back if I could (and I would) but he's got this other friend who's saying, 'You're being taken for a ride. Sell me half the debt and I'll put the screws on him. '

 

 

Can the guy I owe money to sell part of the debt and that would become legally enforceable debt?

 

 

I have no agreement with the guy who lent me the money other than I have signed an IOU that simply states I owe him the money.

 

 

I'm not bothered if the other guy buys the debt just so long as he can't bankrupt me which is the kind of person he is.

At a guess - No

 

If he did that he would essentially become a Debt Collector and debt collection is a licencable activity by the FCA

However

 

Your friend could issue a court claim for it, and being a 5 figure sum would put it out of the realms of a small court claim with big costs implcations.

 

However a court can only award what you can afford to pay.....
