We offer a big variety of landlord forms including the good, the bad and the ugly. One such “ugly” form is of course a Notice of Bad Check.
This isn’t a form we hope any landlord has to send. Unfortunately it happens more often than we’d like to see.
A Notice of Bad Check is a form that is used when a tenant has provided you a rent payment via check, and it has bounced due to insufficient funds.
Luckily we allow you to create a Notice of Bad Check with ease. Not only does it take you mere minutes to get your bad check notice written up, however we handle the process of notifying the tenant in regard to the bad check gracefully.
As I mean let’s be honest a lot of times checks get returned for insufficient funds purely due to a mistake. While it can be a frustrating process, it can also be embarassing for the tenant who gave you the check. So we handle it gracefully.
Let’s dive into how our Notice of Bad Check works, what we need from you, and what the output is.
What You Need to Input to Generate A Notice of Bad Check:
We make it a very easy process. The first thing you will enter is the personal details. This is the landlords name and address, and the tenants name and address.
Our form is set up to allow you to enter multiple landlords (in case there is two), a person as landlord or a corporation as landlord, and then also the option for multiple tenants in case it is a shared rent package or if it is a couple and you wish to address them individually.
Next we ask a couple of details on the check itself. We ask who the check was made payable to, the date of check and the amount of the check. This is just to identify the check in question when the notice of bad check is generated.
Next we ask if there is a penalty for a check that was returned or has bounced. This would be something that you would put in if it was outlined in your original lease agreement only normally. If there is no penalty you simply click “No”. If there is, you click “Yes” and our system prompts you for the amount.
Once you’re done that, your notice of bad check is complete.
Like we said, we cover the informing the tenant portion of it gracefully. Our notice states that we realize mishaps like thos do occur and that we are simply bringing it to their attention so they can correct it. No mean words, no threatening – very polite and professional and stating facts.
Of course our notice of bad check form is completely editable upon completion. So if you want to add in any additional text to it or remove a line from somewhere etc then no problem you have the ability to do that.
Our form also does offer a few additional options. First if you don’t want to mess around with editing the complete document, we have a section where you can add anything else you wish to the notice.
You can also add proof of service or witnesses to the notice if you wish. Witnesses probably aren’t necessary but we do like to leave everything open for you to choose. Proof of delivery is not the worst option for somethign like this.
