I wanted know how the contract or agreement would be handled under the law so I could make the decision. I Googled post dated checks and saw they where not treated as bad checks under Florida law but wanted to know what legal rights I had if the vendor didn't make good on the post dated checks.
I guess I should have asked what happens when someone doesn't pay you for product you sold them on credit
Relist: Other. expert should have seen where this was going if I didn't ask the question as specifically I should have the answer should have be specific enough to explain the question I really needed answered.
My question concerned selling to someone who payed with 5 postdated checks after they received all the product. the answer said it was like giving them credit.
What is my protection under Florida law if I sell something to someone on credit and they don't pay
I didn't see the final answer from Mr. Kennett before I requested this follow up.
He has answered my question satisfactorily. Thank you.
