How to Write a Disagreement Letter

Disagreement letters are some of the most difficult letters to write. Nevertheless, if you keep your cool they can end in a positive way.

  1. Consider diffusing the situation by using love and humor.
  2. Clearly describe the disagreement and explain what you want done to resolve it.
  3. Avoid accusations and threats, particularly in a first letter. (Generally, the intent is to strive to resolve the problem, not simply disagree.) It is important to keep your cool and to remain professional at all times.
  4. Remember to remain courteous, despite the way you may feel.
  5. Keep the tone respectful.
  6. Be clear, direct, and concise.
  7. Address your letter to a specific person, if possible, not just the company or organization in general.
  8. If the problem remains unresolved, you may wish to state clearly in a later letter what action you will take, but only if you are prepared to follow through.
