    Are Banks required to inform you what the blanket lien is or consists of? When we first started our business and bought several pieces, the lender mentioned a blanket and we assumed, being young, that is was for the pieces were purchased with their money. Whether legal or not, it’s extremely unethical to not disclose what you are agreeing to and signing…. Thanks

      Hi Frank,

      Depending on the language used in the blanket lien agreement, the lender could have an interest in all of the debtor’s assets, not just assets bought via the loan money. We’re sorry to hear about the issues but hopefully this helps clear things up for you a bit. Best of luck!

          Hi Maria,
          I think this would be best answered by a lawyer who specializes in business law because we don’t want to offer advice that we may not be qualified to give. Best of luck!

              When must the UCC-1 or UCC 904-6 be filed. Is the financing statement suppose to filed at the time of the transaction or at the time of default. There are several contradictory reports but none explain clearly.

                Hi Richard,

                I wish we could be of more help, but to be honest, this isn’t something we’ve ever encountered before, so it may be a bit outside of our expertise. I’d rather not give you an answer that I’m not too certain about. If you happen to figure this out on your own, please let us know what solution you find so we can learn how to answer something like this in the future. Best of luck to you!

                    i have a question: Client sells future credit card charges to hard money lender for a specific amount of money. within the docs is a confession of judgment. to a NY Court. Later there is a default. the buyer of the credit card debt files his confession of judgment in NY and obtains a judgment for huge money and huge penalties and legal fees and costs. Now the judgment creditor does not file the judgment in the County Court under the Sister state Act,; Instead, they serve the credit card processor company with a copy of the NY judgment the result of which is that the card processor freezes the processing and does not pay the borrower his cash flow from the card processing. Now the holder of the judgment is suing this as a means to get the seller of the credit card charges (actually a borrower) to pay a huge lump sum of money to unfreeze the card processing .
                    Legal? Illegal? Permitted? Does not the judgment out of NY eliminate the UCC lien? is not the judgment holder now forced to use the Sister State compact to enforce his judgment?
