The requirements for endorsement under the act are:It must be on the instrument. The endorsement may be on the back or the face of the instrument and if no space is left on the instrument, it may be made on a separate paper attached to it called along.It must be an endorsement of the entire bill. A partial endorsement that is which purports to transfer to the endorse a part only of the amount payable does not operate as a valid endorsement.It must be made by the maker or holder of the instrument. A stranger cannot endorse it.It may be made either by the endorser merely signing his name on the instrument or by any words showing an intention to endorse or transfer the instrument to a specified person.It must be signed by the endorser. It is not necessary to write the full name initial may be sufficient. Thumb- impression should be attested.Legal Studies
