Basically, try and keep the letter short and concise. It will depend on who the cheque is to and why you're sending it, whether you need to include context to the accompanying letter. For example, if it is to be sent to a landlord whom is paid the same amount, at the same time each month then generally context is needed as they will know what it is for. On the other hand if a cheque is sent to a store to pay for an item which is to be sent out, context will be required to explain what they cheque is for.

Here is a step-by-step guide:

- Write your address, a phone number and the date at the top right-hand corner of the letter
- Miss a line under the date, then on the left-hand side write 'Dear sir/ madam' (full name is always better if possible)
- Next write an introductory sentence, such as 'Please find enclosed the requested cheque for the payment of the electricity bill for the above property'
- If you need to explain who the cheque is for or what it relates to, this would go after the introductory sentence
- Close the letter with 'If there are any problems please don't hesitate to contact me' and sign at the bottom using yours faithfully/sincerely

Remember, the less knowledge the recipient has about the cheque, the more information you will need to include to ensure they know what it is for. To avoid fraudulent activity on your account always ensure the cheque is correctly and fully filled out before it is sent.
