Letter of Claim for Debt Recovery (Alternative Version)
This Letter of Claim for Debt Recovery (Alternative Version) should be used where a customer has failed to pay or agree to pay a debt after receiving a number of chasing letters. If the creditor wishes to make a court claim against the customer, a Letter of Claim must be sent first.
