Sample Letters for Dealing with Debt Collectors

The following sample letters will help if you’re experiencing common problems that may come up with debt collectors.



If you use any of these letters, it’s important to do so as soon as possible after you’re first contacted, and to keep copies of any letters you send. In certain situations, you only have 30 days after you’re contacted to ask for certain information, but even if more than 30 days pass, it’s still a good idea to ask for what you need.

Podcast cover

Guests: attorney Vangela Wade, president and CEO of the Mississippi Center for Justice and Will Bedwell an attorney in the Center's Biloxi office.

Immediate protection for housing:

  • The eviction moratorium operates by restricting lessors of covered properties # from filing new eviction actions for non-payment of rent, and also prohibits “charging fees, penalties, or other charges to the tenant related to such nonpayment of rent.” Sec. 4024(b). The federal moratorium also provides that a lessor (of a covered property) may not evict a tenant after the moratorium expires except on 30 days’ notice—which may not be given until after the moratorium period. 

# Covered properties include:

VAWA Covered Housing Programs

Department of Housing and Urban Development

  • Public housing
  • Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program
  • Section 8 project-based housing

  • c. Evictions Suspended: Pursuant to Miss. Code. Ann. Section 33-15-11(c)(1) and (33-15-11(c)(4), evections within the State of Mississippi are suspended, and all state, county and local law enforcement officers are directed to cease enforcement of orders of eviction for residential premises during the Shelter in Place Order. No provision contained within this Executive Order shall be construed as relieving any individual of the obligation to pay rent, to make mortgage payments, or to comply with any other obligation that an individual may have under tenancy or mortgage. 

https://www.sos.ms.gov/Education-Publications/ExecutiveOrders/1466.pdf

A new federal law, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, puts in place two protections for homeowners with federally backed mortgages:

  1. A foreclosure moratorium
  2. A right to forbearance for homeowners who are experiencing a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 emergency

If you don’t have a federally backed mortgage, you still may have relief options through your mortgage servicer or from your state.
