Some banks will accept a cashier's check for deposit. Then you write 20,000 worth of checks and they bounce because the check is bad. Ask your bank first. Perhaps they will call the buyer's bank and clear it on the spot.
I say go to his bank, watch the teller cut the check, and you should be OK.
My bank has a notary, so perhaps your bank does as well.
