I have heard stories of the Chofetz Chayim avoiding the streets where debtors of his lived. I have also heard that one is not supposed to pressure a debtor, and I was wondering about the halachic basis and extent of this practice.
If a creditor wants the money back from the debtor, what techniques may he use?
A: May he ask for the loan to be repaid (e.g. "Please, can you repay the 35$ I lent you?")?
B: May he ask when the loan will be repaid (e.g. "Do you know when you can repay the loan?")?
C: May he hint at the loan (e.g."So, I have to go pay off a loan right now. It's a good habit, you know.)?
D: May he do nothing to advance to the repayment?
Does the relative amount of the loan (large, small, medium) alter the answer?
