Making a Bad Check Notice

  • What is a Bad Check Notice?

    Sooner or later, everyone has to deal with getting a bad check. You can use a Bad Check Notice to inform the check writer that their check was returned, and they need to send payment. Having a notice on file helps protect your rights and it can help you recover the money you're owed.


    Use the Bad Check Notice document if:

    • A check has been returned unpaid and you want to demand payment from the party who signed the check.

    Use a Bad Check Notice to let a check-writer know that their check hasn't been accepted by the bank, and that they still owe you money. This first notice may suffice and you'll be paid promptly, but if not, you'll have a paper trail to back up your claim. Your Bad Check Notice includes details like: who the check was written to; who wrote and signed the check (also called "the Drawer"); the banking institution the check was written on; the check number, date and amount; why the check was returned unpaid (ex: insufficient funds, payment was stopped, or the account was closed); how and when the returned check, as well as any fees, should be paid; the contact information of the party requesting payment; and more. Depending on your state, there may be additional requirements or limitations on bad check notices, so you'll want to check your local laws.
