Re: Is Writing Paid-In-Full on a Check Binding?
BUT do you have a valid dispute concerning the amount owed?
If so, then in some circumstances, accord and satisfaction is binding. OP does state there is a dispute. OP does not state if the $2k is what he believes the actual amount due to be so can;t make the call as to it being binding or not but it may be.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
