The purpose of a demand letter is to provide the other party with an opportunity to pay the debt or obligation without having to go to court. If the other party does not respond or refuses to pay, then you may have to file a lawsuit to get the money that you are owed.
A demand letter is a legal document that demands payment for goods, services, or, in this case, wrongs done to the person sending the letter. The letter should include a list of the damages that have been incurred, as well as evidence to support the claim. It should also state the amount of money that is being requested and how it can be paid.
