Document Summary

A notice for returned cheque helps give the tenant an idea of the landlord’s intention to take the necessary legal actions against the Tenant.

If the tenant fails to pay the due rent within the period fixed, instead of being immediately evicted, the landlord can send a legal notice giving the tenant a chance to pay the due rental.


A returned check means that the check payment may have been rejected for a variety of reasons including insufficient funds to cover check payment amount.

A legal notice for bounced cheques will only prove to be necessary when there is no other way in resolving the matter.

In case the full payment is not received on or before the deadline mentioned in the notice, the tenant will not only have to pay the rent due, but also any compensation, and any legal costs borne by the Landlord in this regard.
