When writing a claim letter, start by outlining the facts that necessitated the letter, discuss why the recipient owes you money, and outline the consequences for non-payment. State a time limit or agree to a payment schedule, and sign off.
While no single format exists for writing a claim or demand letter., all claim letters must include the payment or action demanded, the reasons for this demand, the legal consequences that may arise from non-compliance, and the time frame allowed. The relationship that the writer has with the recipient determines the tone of the letter. Although the letter may be demanding, it should not express unnecessary hostility. The demands made should be clear and concise.
