Business Loan Doc 2: Collateral Issues

Business Loan Doc 2: Collateral Issues


Who Should Participate

All business leaders, credit analysts, loan reviewers, lending managers, bank presidents, loan assistants and loan secretaries.

Make your attendance count towards your continuing professional education credits! The MBA will provide a certificate of attendance that you may submit to the appropriate advisory board.



An unforeseen event happened to your borrower’s business. Don’t worry, though. You won’t need to charge it off – if your documentation was adequate. How would you feel if it wasn’t?

This course uses lecture and small group activities to cover basic collateral-related UCC issues that fall within the loan documentation process. The participant will achieve a greater understanding of his or her loan documentation responsibilities and a greater sense of self-confidence regarding his or her ability to adequately perform loan documentation activities. The emphasis of the course is on understanding the logic behind general documentation requirements rather than actual forms, highly-technical legal reasoning or unusual documentation situations.

Topics to be covered:

  • The nature and importance of collateral
  • Generalized Article 9 asset classifications
  • The Article 9 framework
  • Perfection through control
  • How to describe collateral when filing
  • How to describe debtor when filing
  • Effects of changes and errors in financing statements
  • When, Whether, Where and What to file
  • Floating security interests: future advances and after-acquired property
  • Challenges to priority: federal tax liens and purchase money security interests
  • The special challenges of collateral proceeds
  • A brief discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of UCC insurance

NOTE: This course does not cover either real estate or agricultural loan documentation issues.
