AS 45.03.206. Restrictive Endorsement.
- (a) An endorsement limiting payment to a particular person or otherwise prohibiting further transfer or negotiation of the
instrument is not effective to prevent further transfer or negotiation of the instrument.
- (b) An endorsement stating a condition to the right of the endorsee to receive payment does not affect the right of the
endorsee to enforce the instrument. A person paying the instrument or taking it for value or collection may disregard
the condition, and the rights and liabilities of that person are not affected by whether the condition has been
- (c) If an instrument bears an endorsement described in AS 45.04.201(b), or an endorsement in blank or to a
particular bank using the words "for deposit," "for collection," or other words indicating a purpose of having the
instrument collected by a bank for the endorser or for a particular account, the following rules apply:
- (1) a person, other than a bank, who purchases the instrument when so endorsed converts the instrument unless the amount
paid for the instrument is received by the endorser or applied consistently with the endorsement;
- (2) a depositary bank that purchases the instrument or takes it for collection when so endorsed converts the instrument
unless the amount paid by the bank with respect to the instrument is received by the endorser or applied consistently
with the endorsement;
- (3) a payor bank that is also the depositary bank or that takes the instrument for immediate payment over the counter from
a person other than a collecting bank converts the instrument unless the proceeds of the instrument are received by the
endorser or applied consistently with the endorsement; and
- (4) except as otherwise provided in (3) of this subsection, a payor bank or intermediary bank may disregard the
endorsement and is not liable if the proceeds of the instrument are not received by the endorser or applied
consistently with the endorsement.
- (d) Except for an endorsement covered by (c) of this section, if an instrument bears an endorsement using words to the
effect that payment is to be made to the endorsee as agent, trustee, or other fiduciary for the benefit of the endorser
or another person, the following rules apply:
- (1) unless there is notice of breach of fiduciary duty as provided in AS 45.03.307
, a person who purchases the instrument from the endorsee or takes the instrument from the endorsee for collection or
payment may pay the proceeds of payment or the value given for the instrument to the endorsee without regard to whether
the endorsee violates a fiduciary duty to the endorser; and
- (2) a subsequent transferee of the instrument or person who pays the instrument is neither given notice nor otherwise
affected by the restriction in the endorsement unless the transferee or payor knows that the fiduciary dealt with the
instrument or its proceeds in breach of a fiduciary duty.
- (e) The presence on an instrument of an endorsement to which this section applies does not prevent a purchaser of the
instrument from becoming a holder in due course of the instrument unless the purchaser is a converter under (c) of this
section or has notice or knowledge of breach of fiduciary duty as stated in (d) of this section.
- (f) In an action to enforce the obligation of a party to pay the instrument, the obligor has a defense if payment would
violate an endorsement to which this section applies and the payment is not permitted by this section.
