A: Are you still residing there? What does he want? If you are still residing there, perhaps it would be best for you to give him another check. I think it would be fair if the check is for an amount minus the fee your bank may charge you to stop payment on the previous check. You don't want him to "find" the other check and cash both.

If you've already moved, I guess it depends on your relationship with him.
