The final warning ...
A Letter of Claim is a formal letter to your debtor requesting payment of the debt to be made within a set deadline.
Letter of Claim - Issuing a final written demand
A Letter of Claim is sent to a debtor as a final warning, requesting that payment of a debt is made otherwise legal action will commence. Ordinarily it is enough to obtain payment, or to re-establish negotiation if there has been a disagreement that has not been resolved.
Issuing a Letter of Claim
In order for us to draft and send a letter of claim, we simply require information on the debtor, their business and the debt itself that is in question, including amounts and the deadlines for payment. Once we have this information we can also calculate any interest payments that you are lawfully owed and add it to the debt.
We offer two ways for this process to be managed, we either write the letter instructing the debtor to contact you, or if you prefer, we can manage the entire process for you, issuing the letter and directly conducting negotiations with the debtor on your behalf until we secure an agreement for payment.
If the debt is still not paid by the deadline given, the next step in recovering the amount owed is to issue Court proceedings.
