2nd Letter of Demand

 

 

The first step in recovering a debt is a well worded letter of demand. It is helpful to recommend a client issue a demand of their own. This puts the debtor on notice that they are seriously overdue and foreshadows the matter being passed to a solicitor. After the client’s demand a formal letter of demand should come from the solicitor’s office.

Initial letters of demand should be polite so that a commercial relationship can be preserved if the non payment is merely an oversight. The intention is to let the recipient know the matter is now in the hands of a lawyer but says this in a polite way. It also increases the likelihood of payment if the initial demand is polite. Rude and overly threatening demands from the outset may have the effect of inducing a debtor to withhold payment out of spite.

In many cases a letter of demand indicating the matter has been passed to solicitors is sufficient
to induce a client to pay. In other cases more threatening letters are required. If these fail, then obtaining judgment via the court process and enforcement are required.

We have three letters of demand.
