Qualified Endorsement

DEFINITION

An endorsement on a negotiable instrument that limits the endorser’s liability in the event the party obtaining the financing fails to make payment.

EXPLANATION

One illustration of how a qualified endorsement comes into play, would be in the case where a check was to have anything written on the backside minus the recourse. If such a scenario were to occur, this is where the law specified would indeed come into play.
