This is the final stage in the six step process to recover outstanding debts from your customer. Make sure you have followed the procedure before you send this letter which threatens legal proceedings.

Letter notifying legal proceedings – Sample 1:

[Business name]
[Business Address]

Customer Account No: {123456] Amount Due: [amount]

Dear [debtor’s name]

Notice of Legal Proceedings

Your account is now overdue for payment by [number of] days and has been passed to our legal department. Despite previous warnings, no payments have been made to this account. Court proceedings will be issued within 14 days from the date of this letter if the account has not been settled.

There will be no further warnings made for demands of payment. Court proceedings can include the additional expense of legal costs and interest being added to the balance of this account.

It is regrettable that it has come to this point and court action is still avoidable if immediate and full settlement of this account is made.

I look forward to hearing from you on this matter.

Yours sincerely

[Creditor name]
