My house burned down, the insurance company issued a check for the house and told me when I get the "contents forms" filled out they will cut me another check for contents. I have heard that if I cash the first check, then they do not have to pay me for the contents. That I have agreed, by cashing the check, that I am paid in full. Is this fact?

Answer

Send then a letter confirming your agreement--but normally it would be okay then...
