You have not mentioned in your query that whether landlord has filed any case or not .any way you can give amount of cheque on date when he send any legal notice even you can deposit amount in court when he filed case of cheque amount

Don't worry about cheque case, you appear before the court and show your intentions to pay the said amount, if he not agree, then fight the case and make defence of your facts in relevant stages of evidence,cross examination of other party, his story of 1500000 is false bring this fact before the court.
