Thank you. I would recommend you you send two letters:
- One containing a stat demand;
- and one sent on a "Without Prejudice" basis that states, the money is owed, you will give him time to pay - I would ask for an initial good will payment 1. Say £1000 - and then ask for him to send you post dated cheques. At least you then dont have to rely on him to make the payment ever month.
What sort of repayments do you think he could make? On a monthly basis?
Thank you. I would send both at the same - the Stat demand and WP letter. The State Demand lets him know the debt is owing and there will be consequence for inaction. The WP letter is to get a means of settlement and payment. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. If you have any acknowledgement or proof that would help. Normally- the debtor will send you a note - offering the opportunity to set aside the application before going to court. So you would have an opportunity to negotiate. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. No - the debt should be due and owing now. You should send the WP letter as a means of settling the debt - and getting payment. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. I would do the higher amount - the quantum can always be changed.
Send the WP letter completely seperately.
Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Yes - send them at the same time - they should be separate documents. Yes you can attach a bank statement if it proves your claim. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Send it by first class post would be best. Take a photocopy for proof of postage. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. The points in red look ok to me. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. It cannot hurt to send evidence of how the debt accrued. You can send both the letter and Stat Demand together.
In response to your query;
- yes delete the crown minister paragraph -if you are indeed not a crown minister;
- include the Debtors current address;
- The consideration for the debt - is a description of how it arose? I.e use of your credit card or cash payments in return for a promise that it would be repaid.
- Reference - this is for your own use;
- Part C - this is not relevant to you. Kind regards AJ
Thank you. Yes they can be in the same envelope - as long as they are separate letters. I would be most grateful if you would rate my response so far. Kind regards AJ
