Any help on my problem will be much appreciated.
My mother was a honorary director in small firm started by my relatives. About a year ago she had signed on a blank cheque with no date on them. This cheque was given as surety to Mr A from whom the firm had borrowed some money. Mr A has in turn given this cheque as a payment to Mr B for some transaction not related to the firm.
It appears Mr B has submitted this cheque recently which bounced due to lack of funds and now he has issues summons to my mother as she was the signatory on the cheque. I am trying to find out about the date of cheque of submission and all those things to see. But in the meantime, I'd appreciate any help on how to go about this case.
Also, my mother was only a honorary director and she has not taken any payments for the role and she hasn't had any role in the running of the firm. Will that make any difference to this case?
