Payment Demand Letter basics

The Payment Demand Letter may be used to make a written demand for money that is owed to you. This letter will provide formal notice that payment is due and that legal action will be taken if payment is not made before a specified date.

How do you write a Payment Demand Letter?

Making a Payment Demand Letter online is simple. Just answer a few questions and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

  • What was purchased?
  • Are there any interest or late charges owed?
  • If payment is not received by a certain date, will there be daily charges? If so, what daily amount will be charged?
  • When must payment be made to avoid possible legal action?

If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions and save your document for later.

How long should I wait for payment after sending a demand letter?

Rocket Lawyer's Payment Demand Letter will allow you to specify when payment must be made to avoid possible legal action. It is customary to allow approximately 15 to 30 days for payment of money owed before taking legal action.

What is included in a demand letter?

A Payment Demand Letter will typically include the following:

  • Information about the parties involved
  • Description of goods or services provided
  • How charges were made
  • Deadline for payment
