This is a formal way of informing the company for stopping the check and therefore, it must include the details like the check number, the amount of the check and the date of the check.
We have shared below the format for notifying for stopping payment due to lost check. You can keep this format as the base for creating a personalized letter to send to the company.
Letter Format to Notify Payment Stopped Due to Lost Check
Date: Aug 11, 2023
Mr. Henry Smith
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing this letter that I had issued a check of amount $ 215 on July 1st, 2023 to your company. However, it has been almost a month and the check has not been presented in the bank for the payment. I strongly feel that this particular check with the number 895623 has lost and therefore, I am writing this letter to cancel the payment of the check number 895623. And I am issuing a new check of the same amount with the check number 562377 of amount $ 215 dated July 27, 2023.
I am apologizing for the delay. Looking forward to keep doing business with you.
