dating a sagittarius girl - Is postdating a check illegal
In the UK the legislation is clear; 'A cheque is a bill of exchange drawn on a banker payable on demand'.
In the United Kingdom, postdating a cheque carries no legal weight and so such a cheque can be cashed before the due date.
However, a bank may refuse to honour a cheque if the postdate is noticed; othwerwise, the payer has no right to take any form of legal action against the bank for letting the cheque be processed.

If you want to write a postdated check just hoping it won't be cashed before a certain date, check your state's law first.
Some states, including California and Georgia, place responsibility on check writers to ensure their checks are not cashed or deposited too quickly.
Other states, like West Virginia, place responsibility on the person the check is written to.
