TELESEMINAR: UCC 9: Fixtures, Liens, Foreclosures & Remedies – A National Perspective

September 12, 2013
12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
1.00 MCLE hours


Foreclosing fixtures and other property under UCC Article 9 can be a time consuming, complicated, contentious and expensive process. Creditors can lose substantial value during the process with debtors fighting the foreclosure and either senior or junior creditors slowing or compromising the process. This highlights the need for effective planning and drafting during the lien process in anticipation of the foreclosure and sale of property. Effective imposition of liens and planning the foreclosure process can save a creditor’s claim and preserve value. This program will provide you with a practical guide to effective imposition of liens, increasing their enforceability, drafting in anticipation of default and foreclosure, and cost saving techniques for foreclosures and sales.


  • Best practices for imposing liens on fixtures and other personal property under UCC Article 9
  • Drafting tips to aid enforceability and contain foreclosure costs
  • Legal and practical framework for foreclosing fixtures, equipment, inventory and other personal property
  • Essential elements of foreclosure process, including notice and seizure
  • Online sales and retention of collateral to satisfy debt
