A payment reminder letter is the most decent way to make somebody realise about his commitment. You may find yourself in a situation where you are writing a payment reminder letter. Even the closest relatives, best friends or trusted customers can be your addressee as hardly few in this world are so responsible that they will keep their promise and won’t make you suffer.
The language of this letter completely depends on the situation for example if it is your first reminder then it will be friendly, and it will become an ultimate reminder if it is third or fourth letter.
In first paragraph of the letter, address your counterpart in a polite manner and remind him/her about the money. Do mention the exact amount and due date to avoid any margin of confusion. Make the other party realise that you did strike a chord a couple of times but it did not work out.
In the second paragraph, request your addressee to gently acknowledge this notice and give an impression that you completely trust him/her. It is always better to give other party the benefit of the doubt.
Your ending sentences should be brief, to the point but still respectful. Close your letter with proper greeting.
