Struggles for perfection and the priority of various security interests rarely take place between the secured creditor and the debtor. It is more likely that these conflicts between creditors will lead to who is the first priority of the debtor`s property. To enhance a security interest, a creditor must ensure that he has properly informed the rest of the world that a security interest is being invoked in the property. Security agreements often contain agreements that include provisions for fund development, a repayment plan or insurance requirements. The borrower may also authorize the lender to keep the loan guarantees until repayment. Security agreements may also cover intangible assets such as patents or claims. After the Secretary-General of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law recommended a reform of safe transactions in 2000, UNCLOS finally established a legislative guide on secure transactions, which was a recommendation to all countries, which was ultimately structured as a compromise between all major legal systems. Although clearly inspired by section 9 of the UCC, the legislative guide therefore did not closely reflect the terminology or structure of section 9. The legislative guide uses different terminologies for even the most fundamental concepts.

For example, the term “security law” is used instead of “security interests.” On 11 December 2008, the Guide was approved at the 67th plenary session of the UN General Assembly in resolution 63/121, which came into force on 15 January 2009. [46] A secured debt security may contain a security agreement under its terms. When a security agreement lists a commercial property as collateral, the lender can file a UCC-1 return that will serve as a guarantee for the property. In order for a security interest to be attached to the security held by subsequent buyers, it must be perfected. If the security contract for a security purchase is of interest to consumer products, perfection is automatic. Otherwise, the lender must register either the agreement itself or a UCC-1 funding declaration in an appropriate public place (usually the Secretary of State or a public enterprise commission under that person`s control). The enhancement of interest creates constructive communication, considered legally sufficient to inform the rest of the world of the lender`s rights over guarantees. When a borrower has used the same property as the guarantees for several guarantee agreements with different lenders, the first lender to register the interest is most entitled to that property. Section 9 is limited in the context of ownership and establishment (i.e.

personal property related to real estate). Security interests in real estate remain subject to divergent laws (in the form of laws or jurisprudence, or both), which vary considerably from state to state. In a small majority of states, the Act of Trust is the most important instrument to generate a security interest in real estate, while the mortgage is used in the rest. In the absence of perfection, it may be difficult for the holder of the interest in securities to assert his rights on collateral to third parties, including a liquidator and other creditors who claim a presumption of value on the same guarantees. You need to “perfect” your security interest to ensure that it is enforceable to third parties. A security interest will apply to the debtor, whether perfected or not. If you have an agreement that offers a safety interest to The Equipment, you can take this equipment late, as you have taken all necessary steps to perfect your interest.
