Post dating a personal check
If you do not want us to pay a stale-dated or postdated check, you must place a stop payment order on it.So the only way to ensure that a post dated check you may present to someone else will clear once it arrives at the bank it was drawn on, s not to write it unless you can over the full amount.In fact this outcome is unavoidable if the check is processed by way of an automatic deposit (versus it being presented at the bank it is was issued against).A "check" is a negotiable instrument intended for immediate negotiating, NOT as a promissory note).
No specific country, I'm interested in hearing how ANY country's bank handles this.(2) A cheque is not invalid by reason only that- (a) it is not dated; (b) it is antedated or post-dated; or (c) the date it bears is a Sunday.(3) For the purpose of determining whether a post-dated instrument is a cheque, the fact that the instrument is post-dated shall be disregarded.If notice is given in writing, the notice is valid for six months.
In West Virginia, the law requires that the recipient of a post-dated check not deposit the check before the date or pay any resulting penalties to the account holder, such as overdraft fees.(4) A cheque is not incomplete or irregular on its face by reason only that it is post-dated (whether or not the date has arrived).
