This course covers credit transactions in which the loan is secured by an interest in personal property. These transactions are largely governed by Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. The course will include coverage of loans secured by mortgages on real estate.
The course examines the mechanics of making secured loans, the rules that govern repossessing the collateral if the debtor doesn’t pay, and what can happen to security interests if the debtor goes bankrupt. It also examines the priority rules that rank competing claims to the same collateral. There may be many such claims. More than one secured lender may have a security interest in the collateral; unsecured creditors may seize the collateral to collect a judgment; customers or other third parties may buy the collateral; the collateral may be affixed to real estate and become subject to the claims of people with interests in the real estate.
