This must-attend session will cover the ins and outs of consumer collateral from A to Z.

Learn how to properly perfect security interests in all types of personal property and get the documentation requirements down pat! This thorough training will help you avoid mistakes and reduce loss.

  • Understand which loan documents are legally required for each loan type
  • Distinguish the proper method of perfection for each collateral type
  • Identify when a co-signer or guarantor can be required for a consumer loan
  • Explain which documents a borrower’s spouse can be required to sign

Your financial institution must properly document its consumer loans and properly perfect its security interest in collateral. Making a mistake in the documentation or perfection process often results in losing the ability to collect against the consumer and/or the collateral.

This webinar will provide a thorough, up-to-date understanding of consumer loan documents and how to properly perfect security interests in all types of consumer personal property collateral, including motor vehicles and other titled property, deposit accounts, stocks and mutual funds, computers and equipment, furniture, accounts receivable, general intangibles, and contract rights. It will explain the situations where filing a UCC-1, taking possession, or obtaining a third-party control agreement is required for perfection. It will also address the compliance rules under Reg B and Reg Z that are applicable to consumer loan documentation. (This webinar will not cover real property collateral.)


This informative session is designed for all personnel involved with consumer loans, including consumer loan officers, loan operations personnel, tellers, service representatives, compliance officers, attorneys, auditors, and managers.
