I have purached the flat from promoter some time back. I have duly paid all the amount which is suppose to be paid as per agreement through bank loan. At the time of delivery of flat promoter has forced me to pay some extra amount without any right reason. I have been forced to pay for some stupid things like measurement , extra decoration which is not reality. In stead of going into an arguement with Promoter I have given him a check dt 01.05.2009 with a promise that i will pay by cash in future and he will retun the check back to me.
I was not in a mood to pay the cash amount, so the promoter has deposited the check before the expiry of validity period which got returned as i have given stop payment instruction in bank.
Till now he has not taken any legal steps. I have following doubts
a) can he still deposits the check dt 01.05.2009 in bank and take legal steps.
b) If I am not legally liable to pay him do i need to fear from him to pay money.
c) can i take legal steps to get the check back from him , as i have the proof that he is having a check signed by me. Bank statement will prove that he has submitted a check with got dishonoured.
