  • BEST WAY OF CHASING OUTSTANDING INVOICE

    Good morning,

    I am trying to help my Son - he has an outstanding invoice from a customer who is point bank refusing to pay for several tons of pea gravel - the total outstanding is over £6K!

    The building supplier is aware of her stance but ultimately I think my Son is liable.....he hasn't got the money to pay this and I said I would help him chase the outstanding invoice.

    I have written once and requested the money and given her 7 days days - but she is still refusing. The gravel is currently all layed out on her lovely new farmyard driveway!!

    Please can you help me to chase this correctly/legally..

    Many thanks

      Hi MrsD,

      We did a simple letter just asking for payment - and stating we intend on going to Court etc. Should I send another marked Letter Before Action? Is there a standard layout for one of these on here?

      Thank you

        14 days letter before action seems to be quoted on many correspondence allowing times for response it seems.

          OK thank you - is there a specific wording to use? Is there a template letter on here - I cannot find anything...

            we don't have one as we are usually on the other end of LBAs. Since it's such a lot of money, I would be inclined to get a local solicitor to do it, and then you need to follow through with it, you do need to go to court for the money.
