The purpose of this letter is to let the party who gave you the bad check know that their check hasn’t been accepted by the bank and that they still owe you money.
This Demand Letter is for someone who was paid with a bad check, or a check that was returned and you want payment from the party who signed the check.
The purpose of this letter is to let the party who gave you the bad check know that their check hasn’t been accepted by the bank and that they still owe you money. This letter may suffice and you’ll be paid promptly, but if not, you’ll have a paper trail in case you have to file a lawsuit. Depending on your state, there may be additional requirements or limitations on bad check notices, so you’ll want to check your local laws.
This letter will establish a paper trail in the event that a lawsuit is filed; and will hopefully motivate the other party to rectify the problem!
