Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices (DR008)

Use this document to create two letters demanding payment for an overdue invoice (or invoices). The first letter is an initial letter demanding payment for an overdue invoice and can be sent as a 'gentle' reminder. If there is no response and you are considering beginning legal proceedings it is normal practise, though not a legal requirement, to send a letter to the debtor giving seven days for a response with payment before proceeding. The second letter is to be used for this purpose and if payment is still not made you can then take your claim to court using documents also available on LawOnline - the specific documents required will depend on whether the District or Circuit Court is used.
