How Much Does a Certified Check Cost?

A certified check is a check that verifies that there is a sufficient amount of funds in the bank account to complete the transaction.  A certified check is commonly used for transactions such as a down payment on a home, a car purchase or a larger purchase where the funds need to be guaranteed, and unlike a normal check, these checks cannot bounce and will ensure the recipient that the cash will be there.  The cost of a certified check will depend on the amount needed and the bank where the transaction is processed.
