Letter of Demand Sample

A Letter of Demand is useful because it will formally demand payment of a debt owed to you. This is normally following the supply of goods or services. Take a look at our sample below so that you can get an idea of what it should look like.

Your Letter of Demand will allow you to communicate your claim to a person or business that has failed to reply to your previous requests for payment. It should be the final step you take before commencing legal action, after making other attempts to get the debt repaid. Your letter should state:

  • The date of the letter
  • How much is owed
  • What the debt is for
  • The time limit within which payment must be made

Your letter needs to state that you will lodge a claim if the debt is not repaid. A letter of demand will be the first step in recovering a debt owed to you, before you go to Court.
