Letters of Demand
The first step in recovering a debt is a well worded letter of demand. 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 debt is overdue 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.
Our collection contains three letters of demand, designed to be sent in sequence.
