Ive had my fair share of messers and non payers this year, most of them i had given up on as it wasnt worth the hassle. But i decided to send a letter to everyone who hasnt paid me on my records, so last week i sent 10 letter out, only for small amounts 10/12/15 quid etc basically threatening small claims court. Well up until now ive had 5 pay, 2 by cheque and 3 online. Im waiting to see what the rest will do, i gave them 14 days. sometimes people need a kick up the ****, and you dont actually have to go through with the small claims but for the sake of a stamp its worth giving a go. I have only 1 that i will defo send to small claims, she owes me 3 cleans and gave me the run around for weeks, shes getting it no matter what lol.
