Letters of Demand

The first step in recovering a debt is well worded letters 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. This collection contains three letters of demand, designed to be sent in sequence.
