Check is lost

Postby tubaloth » Thu Jul 28, 2016 7:19 pm

A check was written to cover utilities.

On the statement I realized it hadn't been cashed.
I realized the check was written from the wrong amount.
My fiance clerk talked to the company the check was written for they said they never got the check (it was issued on June 12th).

So what should we do? Obviously we need to write a new check. What do I do with the old one. Do I need to call SLC? Do I void it in MLS?

Thanks

I think you can find the answer here: Lost or Stolen checks
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

It seems like I should issue a new check before I call? To give them a the new check number?

Thanks

The phone call is to stop payment on the lost check and change the amount to zero. They will get the new check number when you issue the new check.

I would always call first, because you may be surprised that the "lost" check has actually cleared the bank, and you may now have a different problem. But if that is not the case, I would issue a new check as soon as possible after voiding and stopping payment on the lost check.
