Overview of Legal Notice

Legal action can only be taken when already notice has been served upon the entity or person you wish to bring to court. It is only this method that legalizes producing a matter to court. The intimation given is known as 'legal notice.' A legal notice is, hence, formal notification to a person or an entity, notifying the other party of your purpose to commence legal proceedings against them. Legal notice can serve as a target of negotiations among the parties and save time, effort, and money spent in court cases.

This makes the party aware of your complaint. Many times, a legal notice served will bring the other party on heels, and the difficulty can get resolved out of court, too, with fruitful arguments on both sides. If the opposite party is still not heeding to the grievance, one can always start the court procedures after a particular interval, as pronounced by the law.

 What is a legal Notice?

When a person decides to take legal action, one of the first steps involved, is sending an official communication to warn the offender of his/her intentions when a specified condition was not complied upon as agreed, when the contract was signed between both the parties. For instance, a legal notice can be issued to a tenant for not paying the rent as per the agreed terms and conditions before moving into the property of the owner’s house. Therefore, this gives the landlord the right to send a legal notice to the renter with the immediate effect of paying the dues before the specified date or vacate immediately.

 Benefits of A Legal Notice

Warning: A legal notice ensures that the offender is made aware of his/her duties to be performed, and the consequences of non-compliance.

Caveat: The wrongdoer is informed about the potential litigation and opportunity to rectify his/her error

Resolution of Dispute: Both parties shall resolve their dispute by negotiating between themselves.

Amicable Settlement: The process of litigation is time-consuming in lieu of which direct settlement makes things quicker and easier.
