It is not possible, as far as I understand it, to put a hold on a certified cheque. I would be very surprised if a bank would allow that, but it is certainly not unlawful for a bank to do that.

Does that answer your question? If not, please provide me with more of the basic facts so that I can answer in a more meaningful way.
