Letter before legal action following earlier correspondence (DR010)

Use this document to create a final letter of demand, following previous unanswered correspondence, before considering taking court action with respect to a claim that you have made for liquidated damages or for an outstanding debt. You should have previously sent a letter to the person or business you are making a claim against, detailing how the claim arose and what the effects have been, but had no response. Without sending this letter, and if you decide to initiate legal proceedings, the court may find that you have acted unreasonably and may penalise you by disallowing or reducing the costs or interest that you might otherwise have been entitled to. Please note that you cannot use this letter if your claim relates to a personal injury you have suffered.
