What is the statue of limitations for a bad check in Kansas? What is SOL for overdrawn checking account?
In Kansas, collection on a written contract (check) has a Statute of Limitations of 5 years. Check holders also sign a contract with their bank agreeing to payment for overdrawn amounts, so that statute would also be 5 years.Of course, if the bank obtained a judgment within that 5 years, they would have another 5 years from the date of that judgment, which could then be renewed another 5 years.So, assuming they waited until the last year to obtain a judgment and renewed the judgment, the statute of limitations on collecting on a check and bank overdraft can be nearly 15 years.
