Qualified Endorsement

An endorsement on a financial instrument, such as a check, that limits the endorser's liability. That is, the endorser may write "without recourse" as a qualified endorsement. It indicates that the endorser is not responsible in the event that an institution such as a bank refuses to make payment on the instrument.
