The LL has sent cheques to cover the low offer; having thought

Resolved Question:

The LL has sent cheques to cover the low offer; having thought about it I feel I should return them as we're asking for a straight forward offer (without the non disclosure agreement) and for him to increase the offer. Do you have any view as to whether I return the cheques or not?
I think those are all of my queries ahead of sending the letter, but will possibly need assistance with filling the court form in if it comes to that.

Hello and thanks for requesting me.
Only cash the cheque if it does NOT say: In full and final settlement.
Anything else means you can accept this amount and still pursue it!
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No- I can't do that- he is after all a legal bod (albeit one who's indulged in somewhat questionable behaviour for a comparatively small sum)

He's said it's in full & final settlement.

And I send all the other stuff separately- you got them?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Ok. Then don't cash it.
Yes seen other q's
