§ 4212. Presentment by notice of item not payable by, through

or at a bank; liability of drawer or indorser.

(a) Presentment by notice.--Unless otherwise instructed, a collecting bank may present an item not payable by, through or at a bank by sending to the party to accept or pay a written notice that the bank holds the item for acceptance or payment. The notice must be sent in time to be received on or before the day when presentment is due and the bank must meet any requirement of the party to accept or pay under section 3501 (relating to presentment) by the close of the next banking day of the bank after it knows of the requirement.

(b) Dishonor and notice to drawer or indorser.--If presentment is made by notice and payment, acceptance or request for compliance with a requirement under section 3501 is not received by the close of business on the day after maturity or, in the case of demand items, by the close of business on the third banking day after notice was sent, the presenting bank may treat the item as dishonored and charge any drawer or indorser by sending it notice of the facts.
