    is that ok?

    Hi,
    a friend of mine must send a letter to a British bank. Her cheque is expired; she wants to send back the original cheque asking if they can re issue the cheque or pay the sum into (on ??) her bank account.
    Is the text ok? thanks a lot.Rip

    "Dear Sirs, I'm writing to you because I forgot to cash the enclosed cheque.
    Since the cheque is not cashable anymore I'm sending it back to you and I would be grateful if you could please issue a new one or credit the sum to the bank account INTO WHICH (???????) you deposit my payments since August.

    Yours faithfully

    Dear Sirs

    I enclose a cheque which I received from you on [date] and which is dated [the date on the cheque].

    Unfortunately, I failed to cash the cheque within the maximum time limit (of six months).

    Would it be possible for you to issue me with a new cheque for the same amount or, failing that, to credit my current account [account number, sort code and name on the account] with the relevant amount?

    Please let me know urgently if either course of action is possible.

    Yours faithfully

    [Name]


    I hope this helps. However, I doubt the bank will look too kindly on this request. It is the receiver's responsibility to cash a cheque within the maximum time limit and if your friend failed to do so, then he/she may have lost that money.

    Rip, please stop using multiple question marks.

    Your use of into which is correct, by the way.

    Probably we'll have to write to the original source of money. It is a cheque with pension money.
    Your help is really useful.
    thanks a lot.

    Yes. If the cheque was not issued by the bank then you need to write to the person/company which issued the cheque in the first place - the pension company. The bank will be of no help to you at all if they didn't write the cheque.
