Cheque Payments

We have recently had a number of cheques returned to us as the drawer is in the process of switching banks. I don’t know what the new bank is telling you but the result is that a cheque drawn on your old bank will be rejected and represented by our bank to your new bank. On it’s own this would not be a problem, however, each time this happens we are charged £4 by our own bank. I am therefore making you aware that you are fully responsible for any charges we receive from this process.
