UCC3`s UNTERORDNUNG mixes the terms a little. An insured part (for example. B a lender) files a «UCC-1 financing statement» which, as NWT points out, tells the world that it has a security/link interest in the field. UCC-1 has basic information – the name and address of the debtor and the insured party, as well as a brief description of the guarantees. Here`s one of what a space looks like: www.dos.ny.gov/forms/corporations/UCC1.pdf The next court Caterpillars right to security purchase money. Caterpillar stated that its loan, which used the device as collateral, was characterized as either security interest for the purchase money or as refinancing of debts owed by S Coal to a leasing company on the aircraft. Under the Single Code of Commerce (UCC) 9-324 (a), if a debt has been incurred to allow a debtor to acquire security, the creditor enjoys a priority security interest, even over previous security interests on the same property. In addition, UCC 9-103 (f) (3) allows a creditor to maintain these priority interests even if it refinances the debt. In this case, S Coal leased the equipment to a leasing company. Caterpillar said, however, that its loan would ultimately allow S Coal to purchase the aircraft and thus gave Caterpillar a safety interest in the equipment.
The Court disagreed and found that the lease was a sales contract, since the leasing company (not S Coal or Caterpillar) held a security interest in the equipment until the full value of the equipment was paid. Caterpillar also claimed that the refinancing of the debt of leasing company Caterpillar was on the back of the leasing company. The Court again contradicted the assertion that ucC 9-103 (f) (3) Caterpillar was not available because the aircraft had not been acquired with the means provided by Caterpillar, but was already owned by S Coal. The Court found that Caterpillar could only have entered the leasing company`s priority position if the leasing company transferred its security interest to caterpillar, which was not the case with caterpillar. While obtaining a structural position in the U.S. business credit market, as in other markets, depends exclusively on the granting of credits at a level within the borrower`s capital structure below the level at which another lender is limited, contractual seniority is established by a subordination agreement. Contractual subordination is obtained by an agreement in which the sub-mandate creditor agrees that in the event of bankruptcy or any other distribution of the debtor`s assets, all amounts attributable to the sub-mandate creditor for other purposes be paid to a creditor or a particular group of creditors who hold a «senior debt» until they are fully repaid. The category of «senior debt» is generally defined as the total debt for borrowed money, whether it exists now or thereafter, as well as capital leasing. It is not necessary for the subordination agreement to be concluded between the subordinate creditor and the priority creditor and, often, the priority creditor of the third parties is an agreement between the borrower and the subordinate creditor. The subordination conditions in the United States also generally stipulate that, in the event of a late payment of priority debt, the payment of the subordinated debt must not be made until the default is healed or the principal debt is fully tainted.
