‘ Personal Property’
TRADE CREDITORS’ RIGHTS Retention of title (RoT) Hirers and lessors of property Charges over personal property
Retention of title “We’re not all that worried about PPS. The only impact to us is retention of title. We’re the owner of the goods anyway, so there won’t be any other security interest we need to compete with. If anything, we’ll just register if we’re concerned that a debtor is going to end up in trouble.” National credit manager, large corporate client
The good news 1.RoT claim is a ‘PMSI’ which creates a ‘Super Priority’. 2.Greater rights in respect of processed and co-mingled goods.
PMSI interest creates SUPER PRIORITY.
