Signing in print

  1. Print a copy of the Debt Recovery Letter.

  1. Date and sign the Letter.

The Debt Recovery Letter is a formal notice which must be served properly.

If the debt is owed under a contract check that contract for any special rules about serving notices and make sure they are followed.

The safest way to serve notice is to deliver in person or failing this, to send by courier, post or email.

  • In person: hand the Letter to the debtor personally.

  • Post: if you are serving notice by post then it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery. Check you have the debtor’s latest address.

Email: check that the contract allows you to send notices by email and whether it requires you to request a ‘read receipt’ as proof of service.

A copy of the Letter will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.

If you post or hand deliver the Letter then keep a copy of the signed Letter that was sent and anything else included.

If you email the Letter then keep a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any ‘read receipts’.
