Statutory Demand Templates

A creditor can issue a statutory demand by completing one of four template statutory demand forms (Forms SD 1; SD 2; SD 3 or SD 4).

Template statutory demands in Word format

The following are the three current blank statutory demand forms which you can download in Microsoft Word format. If you intend to use one of these forms you should take expert legal advice to ensure the correct form is used and that the form is set out correctly. Any mistakes may result in serious costs consequences which may exceed the amount of debt sought.

Note: amendments made need to be made to HMCTS’ standard template Form SD 2, therefore it is crucial that legal advice is sought before serving a statutory demand.
