Certified Check Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Certified Check.

Certified Check (noun): A certified check is a type of check issued by a bank. The bank confirms that the person who wrote the check has enough money in their account to cover the cost. This promise to pay is guaranteed by the bank, which earmarks or sets aside the funds until the check is cashed or expires. It brings a piece of mind, assuring that the check will be paid promptly and won't bounce due to insufficient funds.
