How long are cheques valid for?

We reserve the right not to pay a cheque that is older than 6 months (from the date written on the front of the cheque).

If you have a cheque dated 6 months or more ago it may not clear and you should contact the issuer of that cheque and ask for a replacement.

If you have written a cheque to a third party and it still hasn't debited your account 6 months later, you can choose to contact us to stop the cheque.

If you do not stop the cheque it may still be paid.

How do I stop a cheque?
