A demand letter for payment It sends a request for money due and specifies when the payment should be made.
If the money is not paid by the response date, the requesting party, the “plaintiff,” will write a summary of the events that led to the money being due by the other party, the “defendant,” and other action will be taken.

Dear Name of Landlord:
For three years, I rented your residence at [ADDRESS] and always paid my rent on time. When I vacated on [DATE], the property was in good condition and there were no damages. You signed a declaration stating that the house is in good condition and that the $2,500 deposit I made on [DATE] would be refunded in full.
It’s been three months since you sent me the money, either in cash or via check. I’d like to suggest that you provide me the whole deposit before the end of next week, on DATE. I shall take the matter to small-claims court if it is not returned to me on or before that date.
I’ve enclosed copies of all of my rental receipts, as well as the deposit receipt and the letter you signed promising to repay my money in full. I may be reached at [phone number] or [email address] if you have any questions.
