Since its introduction, the Personal Property Security Act (PPSA) has created complexities for lawyers advising on secured transactions. The only practice-oriented resource to BC PPSA transactions, BC PPSA Practice Manual is written in plain language and guides you step by step through all parts of a secured transaction. This two-volume manual begins with a handy “Quick Reference Guide” on how to deal with common procedural questions. The chapters following are designed to assist you in achieving your goal, whether drafting a security agreement, negotiating a priority agreement, or enforcing a security interest. You will find useful checklists (including a notice period, time limitation, and grace period list) and over 60 secured transactions forms and precedents to save you time.
