Q: is it possible to notify the receiving bank to hold the check until further investigation is possible?
A: No, unfortunately you cannot do that. You can certainly ask, but the bank is almost certainly not going to hold the check. Checks are supposed to be treated as cash. It’s possible that your own bank will put a stop check on it, but the receiving bank will not.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
