    I have accidentally torn (in half) a check made payable to myself. Can I still deposit this check in my Bank account?

    A bank will not accept a torn cheque.

    I asked a while ago about cheques and apparently yes a torn cheque can be lodged.

    They do accept....once you are able to selotape it together and no details from the bottom line are missing (a/c, sort code, cheque no.)

    Thats good news - no details are missing from the bottom. Saves me going back to admit my stupidity!

    I've also rang the bank since and they said it will be OK.
