Dear all - I would be grateful for some help. I have been greatly overcharged for professional services. I am intending to make an offer to settle the outstanding invoices and we can then go our separate ways. I would like to be sure that my full and final settlement offer is indeed that - that the professional cannot bank the cheque and then come back for more. Please could you comment on this wording
A cheque for £___ is enclosed in full and final settlement of all matters between us. If you do not agree do not bank the cheque but return it to us. If the cheque is presented to your bank you are implicitly and absolutely agreeing that all matters are settled and that you have no further claim upon us whatsoever.
