Manually writing a check

Postby surf40 » Sun Dec 08, 2013 1:38 pm

Is it possible to manually write a check if for some reason the MLS is down (computer or internet problems)? Is there procedures for this? Can one call the 1-800 number to get the funds authorized for the check, and then how would I enter it in MLS once it comes back up?

We had an urgent need this last week, and MLS was down (software issue). It was fixed, but it cam close to us needing to write the check manually.

Please direct me to the instructions for this

Thanks

Danny

Yes you can manually write the check (no need to call anyone) then just put it into MLS. Do everything just like you would if you were to print the check but just print it on a blank piece of paper and shred it.

The RKATS article linked to by russellhltn says the check printed on the blank paper is to be filed with a copy of the handwritten check and the other paperwork for that disbursement.

OK so do that. Since our current boundary changes and no longer being a clerk I don't have access to the RKATS site so was going blind and could not verify the correct procedure. Sorry.
