Letter of Demand

A letter to recover debt owed.

A letter of demand is sent from one party to another when the first party wishes to claim money they believe is owing to them. The letter states the amount that is outstanding, a timeframe for action, and it advises that further proceedings may be commenced without further notice if the debt is not paid.
