Background: my previous landlord returned my security deposit, but for less than the full amount. I believe I am entitled to the full deposit back, so intend to dispute the amount.
I am going to try to avoid a heated debate that ultimately winds up in court, but it's hard to know how that initial discussion will go.
What I would like to do is deposit the check, and be 100% sure that payment cannot be stopped on the check before I contact the landlord and begin the dispute. How long do I have to wait to ensure that payment on the check cannot be stopped?
If it matters, the amount of the check is ~$2500. Also, I am not looking for advice on the legal aspects of the situation, just the check deposit.
