Civil Litigation - Claiming a debt, letter of demand and debt collectors.

Read More
When someone owes you money, specially in a business relationship, the first thing most people think of is to “get the debt collectors onto the job”. While this is one method of initiating the process of recovery, there is also the possibility of sending a letter of demand to the debtor yourself. 

A letter of demand is used to communicate with some one who a creditor reckons owes them a certain amount of money. The letter usually will describe what the claim is about and mentions the amount that is being claimed and sets a dead line giving the alleged debtor a certain amount of time to make the payment. The letter should also state if the payment is not made by the due date what further action will be taken.
