In the United States and Canada, Certified Funds are a form of payment that is guaranteed to clear or settle by the company certifying the funds.
When making certain types of transactions, such as purchasing real property, motor vehicles and other items that require title/ownership, the seller usually requires a guarantee that the payment method used will satisfy the obligations. To do this, the seller will require certified funds, usually in the form of:

  • Certified check
  • cashier's check (known as a bank draft in Canada)
  • money order (usually with proper identification)
  • manager's check (usually with proper identification)
  • EBT wire transfer (i.e. Western Union)

Specifically, personal/business checks are not allowed, as the account may not have sufficient funds, and credit cards are not allowed, as the transaction may later be disputed or reversed.

Drop box or mailed payments must be made by check or money order. Please include your coupon or account number.
