a customer owes me 2450 for three jobs i did for him. i filed liens and small claims.now he sends me a check for 1500,in the endorsement area he wrote in full and final payment. the check is written to my business, so i am not signing the check anyway. does cashing the check constitute payment in full?also i have 2 cases against him since properties are in different names one a llc and the other is him,he sent check from llc, does that only apply to the property under the llc
The link below to a Michigan Court of Appeals may be relevant to your circumstance. Don't take it as legal advice, just as general information. I don't practice law in Michigan and don't hold Michigan licensure. If you need legal advice, please consult a lawyer who does.
You do not give enough information.. how much is owed by his LLC and how much is owed by him personally?
If the LLC owes $1500 or less cash it and withdraw that portion of the claim since only the LLC paid..

I agree with the information Attorney Taylor posted. Please read the case he provided a link to. You will see the subtle points that may make or break your case. Good luck!
