He wants it in cash. Should I worry about the fact that there is then no paper trail?

Do. Not. Give. Him. Cash!

Do you usually pay your board in cash? If so, I sure hope you get a receipt.

No, I never do. Always check. That way I have a paper trail and can prove (1) that it was written [by scanning a copy] and (2) that he has deposited it, when he does. A red flag definitely went up in my mind, when he said that, especially given how shady he's suddenly being. My thought is that if I give him cash, he'll say he never got it, and THEN he CAN hold a lien interest on her, because I have no proof that I paid it.

Never, never, never, never pay your bills in cash! My BO, trainer, farrier, vets, etc all get their payment in a check. There is never any question if they got paid when I can print out a copy of the cashed check from my bank's website.

I agree with your concern.

Do not give him cash. Do not. Do not. Do not!


And do not write him a check for the full amount he wants and then stop payment on it. It can be considered fraud.

Make sure your comment line clearly says that you are paid in full for the 30 day notice.

I thought it was a little odd that he asked for cash and said he wants it today... I would write a check for what you think is fair and leave it for him on the day you leave so that he doesn't get a chance to cause more trouble after seeing you're not giving him cash.

Get him a cashier's check from your bank. I'm assuming he is saying this because he doesn't want a personal check.

Don't give him cash! Did it say in your board agreement you have to pay cash? He soundl like a scumbag that's running his barn under the table and dose not want to pay taxes. I had to deal with one once..write a check and if he dosent like it he dosent have to cash it. If you get him a cashiers check then I would minus the money it cost you to get that check from what you owe him!

Okay, that's originally what I was thinking, but I wanted to double check to make sure I'm not doing anything offensive. Definitely won't give him cash, no matter how much he begs for it.

Just in case... Say I write the check. My boyfriend and my friend who is helping me move her will be there with me, but how do I PROVE that he received the check? I'm afraid he won't deposit it and then will claim that I never paid...

Silly question, these are traceable, right? You can ask the bank for proof that they are cashed, right?


ETA - if he never deposits it then he has not been paid. But once you have the horse off his property he has to rectify his financial issues with you by taking you to civil court. (Small Claims)
