    Told by whom? What do you want to say. When writing it is important that you read over what you have written.

    For example you wrote "basis" when I assume you meant "basic".

    If you give us some idea I'm sure contributors would help.

    Hi Horse.chestnut

    Noting from another thread that you have €90,000 in arrears to Bank of Ireland, and that these built up over 4 years, and that you are currently paying €800 a month, you might be better off making an appointment with a Personal Insolvency Practicioner (PIP) rather than writing letters to a solicitor. There are solutions which will keep you in your home, and address the arrears issue. A PIP will be best placed to advise, and will write letters to Bank of Ireland's solicitors on your behalf.

    You need to worry more about the content of the letter. If you don't know what you are talking about, you will make things worse. This really is a case where he should pay the few quid and hire a professional to help him out. It will save him (you!) a lot of hassle, time and maybe even money.

    Hello Chestnut, if the problem that this man used to have women who worked for him and they were able to write good letters and now he wants you to do the same? And that you don't feel able to do this? Is that the issue?

    You seem very stressed about this. How about you tell us what your relationship with him is. (partner/wife/sister) And then tell us what the letter is supposed to be about. You said it's about his mortgage. And about his debts. Can you tell us all the debts. Can you tell us who the solicitor is working for. (a bank, the esb, a credit union) Did the solicitor send a 'nasty' letter to 'him'? Is he afraid of what it says in the letter.
