Why should I demand payment using a demand letter before suing?

Updated: Apr 28

It is usually better, and sometimes legally required, for you to formally ask the other side (the person you are suing is called the Defendant) to pay before you file a lawsuit. This is commonly known as a Demand Letter. If the other party does not agree to pay, you will be able to file a lawsuit.

Why should you send a demand letter?

  • A formally worded demand letter will often convince the other party to pay, as they too want to avoid a lawsuit.

  • The cost of sending a demand letter is much less than the cost of filing a lawsuit.

  • The time spent sending a demand letter is much less than the time spent filing and carrying out a lawsuit.
