Final Payment Demand Letter

California Small Claims Courts require plaintiffs to send defendants demand letters before filing a lawsuit.

Here are 7 Tips on How to Write the Best Demand Letter for Payment:

  • Start the letter with a recitation of the facts. 
  • After stating the facts, present the evidence that supports your claim. 
  • Give a detailed account of your damages. 
  • Avoid inflammatory language and threats.
  • End the letter with a request and give the other party a reasonable and specific deadline to respond. 
  • State clearly what the consequences will be for failing to meet your demands. 
  • Make sure you keep a copy of the letter.
