You can write a demand letter that says how much the person owes you and tells them they must pay you. For example, a demand letter about a loan can say something like this:
<blockquote>''I am writing about a loan I made you of'' ______________(
insert amount) ''on'' ______________( insert date of loan) ''for'' ______________( insert purpose of loan). ''Our agreement was that you would pay this loan in full by'' ______________( insert date of repayment). ''To date, you have not made any payments. It has now been'' ______________ ( insert number of days) ''since the loan was due. The full amount of'' ______________( insert amount) ''is now due. If I do not receive payment in full by'' ______________(give a date), ''I will take legal action to recover the amount of the loan, as well as interest, filing fees, and any other costs. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at''______________ (your phone number).</blockquote>
You can write a demand letter yourself or you can ask a lawyer to write it for you. A demand letter, sent on the lawyer’s letterhead is often very effective. If a demand letter does not work, you may need to go to court.
