Sometimes, circumstances beyond anyone’s control can change their financial situation. This could be a death in the family, losing a job, or even a natural disaster. Sometimes even smaller events can cause problems. These issues can lead to the non-payment of bills. A payment arrangement agreement letter can help someone in a tough financial situation still pay-off debts, a positive circumstance for both parties.
Format and Content
The payment arrangement agreement letter format must clearly state all the relevant information as it will become a binding contract, the kind that could be used in court. The agreement must include the original debt owed, and payment terms that work for the payee. These arrangements can be for any amount and be paid on any timetable as long as both parties agree. How and when the payments should be made should also be included. This letter is usually written by the company or entity that is owed money and the payee will sign it if they think they can meet the payment terms.
In this payment arrangement agreement letter sample, a collection agency is offering a payment arrangement to a debtor on behalf of another company. This letter includes a simplified agreement, showing the amount to be paid monthly until the bill is fully paid off.
