What UCC statue is it that says if a negotiable instrument (like a promissory note) is altered that it releases the obligation of the debtor.

Thanks

Hello and thank you for your question.

Are you referring to
UCC ARTICLE 3-NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENTS
PART 4. LIABILITY OF PARTIES § 3-407. ALTERATION

 

“(b) Except as provided in subsection (c), an alteration fraudulently made discharges a party whose obligation is affected by the alteration unless that party assents or is precluded from asserting the alteration”

Also, do you have the UCC statue where an 'endorsed' promissory note releases the obligation of the debtor?


 


Ex:


 


Promissory note is endorsed 'Pay to the Order of Wells Fargo Bank'
