A claim initially settled shall not be settled if, as a result of a counter-claim or set-off, the amount actually due has been called into question on the balance between the parties. Under these conditions, an agreement and satisfaction may result from the payment of an amount lower than that of the creditor, including an amount that does not exceed the balance granted.

In H.L. “Brownie” Choate, Inc. v.
Southland Drilling Co., Inc., 441 P.W.2d 672 (Tex. Civ. App. San Antonio 1969), defendant creditor, which was the service provider of the defendant debtor, caused damage to the defendant`s drilling facility. In accordance with its previous practice, the defendant recovered the amount of the damage by deducting the amount it owed to the applicant for the services rendered. The applicant brought an action for recovery of the amount deducted. The court decided that “. if the amount due was disputed and the debtor offered a cheque lower than the amount requested by the creditor, while the debtor expressed his intention that the cheque was offered in full, the withholding and cashing of the cheque by the creditor was considered acceptance of the offer, and such a measure by the creditor was considered to be full satisfaction. The Tribunal found that the claimant`s acceptance of a lower amount constituted an agreement and satisfaction of the debt. A majority of jurists follow this view, although there is a contrary authority. See B. Mifflin Hood Co. v.
Lichter, 106 F. Supp. 220, 231 (D. Tenn. 1950). (A counter-claim or additional claim in dispute does not render the principal obligation untaled if that principal obligation is not itself contested.
