Dear Mr. Stone,

This letter is in regards to a loan that I made to you in the amount of $8,000 on June 4, 2020 for the down payment of your new van. At that time, we agreed that this loan was to be paid in full by December 4, 2021.

As of today, February 8, 2022, you have not given me any payments towards this loan. It has been one year since the loan was to be repaid in full. I request that, on the receipt of this letter, you repay the amount in full.

If I do not receive payment in full before the end of this year, I reserve the right to take further legal action to recover the amount of the loan without further notice to you. 

This letter may be given in evidence in court of your failure to pay. If it becomes necessary to go to court, I will expect you to pay the applicable interest, filing and attorney’s fees, and any other related costs.

I will be happy to answer any questions you may have if you call me at 555 1234.

Your immediate attention to this matter will be appreciated.
