What is a Demand Letter?
A Demand Letter is a letter that obligates someone to deliver or do something. In the context of the loan, it is a letter from the Legal Team of Flexi Finance informing the borrower that you must repay your overdue balance.
Article 1169 of the Civil Code provides that when a borrower incurs in delay, the creditor, judicially or extrajudicially, has the right to demand the fulfillment of the obligation.
The law also states that borrowers who fail to pay their monthly installments can be sent a Demand Letter.
What is Delay?
Delay or default is the failure of the borrower to perform his obligations, like the payment of a loan. As in this case, he is in mora solvendi, and, thus, liable for damages. (Pineda vs. Vda De Vega, G.R. No. 233774).
