UCC Rules: How to Comply to Attach and Perfect Secured Transactions

Monday, August 3, 2020 
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm Eastern

Many loans extended by commercial banks are secured by personal property, which is governed by Revised Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC governs secured transactions by taking most kinds of collateral for loans. It answers questions such as:

  • How to protect rights to collateral against the claims of others
  • How to describe collateral in security agreements and financing statements
  • Where to file financing statements.
  • Commercial/Consumer Lenders and Loan Administrators must understand Revised Article 9 as it relates to collateral attachment and perfection of personal property. We'll provide an overview of the UCC and focus on the most relevant factors bankers and administrators need to know to perform routine duties and protect the bank's security interests in assets taken as collateral. We'll focus on practical application of UCC rules.
  • Highlights will include:

  • Collateral covered by Revised Article 9
  • Revised definitions of existing collateral covered by Revised Article 9
  • Completing the Financing Statements properly
  • Utilizing the proper collateral descriptions on Security Agreements and Financing Statements
  • Filing the Financing Statements in the proper location and other areas of concern. 
  • Leave with an understanding of how to document, close and record secured transactions covered by Revised Article 9 of the UCC. Get good working knowledge for managing the most common commercial and consumer secured transactions governed by Revised Article 9.

Topics Covered:

  • The Loan Documentation Process
  • Collateral Definitions
  • Attachment and Perfection Rules
  • Collateral Descriptions on Security Agreements & UCC Financing Statements
  • Completing the Financing Statements to avoid rejection and provide legal protection
  • Filing the Financing Statement in the proper location depending upon the type of collateral obtained
