Follow these steps to complete a Debt Collection Letter:

  1. Greet the breaching party and introduce yourself. Tell the reader you are representing the lender - it is recommended to attach a copy of the power of attorney.
  2. Indicate the reason for writing the letter - you inform the recipient of their unpaid debt. State the amount of the debt, additional charges, fees, and interest. Refer to the original contract the lender and the borrower have signed and highlight the particular clause that obliges the borrower to settle the debt.
  3. Record the deadline and confirm the lender will be waiting for the full payment of the debt by this day. If this does not happen, you will take immediate court action. Be polite yet firm - if it is not the first reminder, mention other letters you have already sent to show you have tried to deal with the problem.
  4. Offer the debtor the possibility to reach out to you and discuss the matter further - add your contact details or tell them to call or mail the lender directly.
  5. Sign and date the letter. Send it via certified mail to obtain a receipt - this document will be useful as evidence if later the dispute is addressed in court.

Re: Final Demand Letter Prior to Legal Action
Dear Mr. Jackson,
On behalf of our client Wayne Inc., we at McGonagall & Associates are writing to inform
you of an overdue payment owed to our client. According to the construction materials
invoice agreed upon by you and our client, you owe $16,455 for materials plus delivery.
This payment is currently 30 days overdue which, consequently, will result in interest
charges applied to the delivery charge. Wayne Inc. charges a 2% interest per 30 days,
which is a reasonable percentage for the inconvenience. Therefore, you will be charged
an additional $329.10 for the 30 days currently overdue, bringing the total amount owing
to $16,784.10.
This letter serves as the final warning for overdue payment. If payment is not made
within 14 days, we will have no choice but to take immediate legal action. Please contact
