What is a Letter of Demand


A Letter of Demand is a formal document required to issue a final demand to a person or business who owes you money to pay an outstanding debt and avoid legal action. Issuing a Letter of Demand is the first official step when you decide to use the legal system to settle a debt in Australia. Prior to writing a letter of demand, it's important to make sure that you have already sent first and second reminder letters before you lodge a claim with a court in Australia, as this could more often than not save you time and substantial costs.
