In the event of the termination of the collateral, the taker returns the certificate of shares constituting the mortgaged shares and all other documents made available to the depositholder in accordance with the terms of the share guarantee agreement and executes documents or instruments (or the collection of documents or instruments necessary to terminate the security interest for the benefit of the pawnbroker who returns to the shares). The mortgaged asset can be used to eliminate the down payment, avoid PMI payments and secure a lower interest rate. Suppose a borrower wants to buy a $200,000 home, which requires a down payment of $20,000. If the borrower has $20,000 in shares or investments, he or she can be mortgaged to the bank in exchange for the down payment. In our experience, the acquisition of guarantees for the repayment of a debt through a collateral of shares subject to English legislation is quite common in some emerging economies, particularly in Russia, and we have seen how this instrument has been used in a series of transactions in emerging countries with trans-competence elements in which we have participated. Under the common law of England and Wales, the creditor (or the pawnbroker) can sell the mortgaged asset if the creditor who is insolvent at the time of payment, provided that the pawnbroker carefully imposes it on the creditor. Since the duration of the termination depends on the circumstances in force, it is recommended that the pawnbroker and the pledgeee file a letter of deposit or a declaration of mortgage obligations describing the rights of the pawnbroker with respect to the mortgaged assets and, in particular, the duration of the disclosure of the pawnbroker. Similarly, in the context of a share pawn, a share pledge contract is usually concluded between the registered owner of the shares (the Pfeder) and the individual or legal person for whom the collateral is made (the pawnbroker). A guaranteed debt may contain a security agreement under its terms.
When a security agreement lists a commercial property as collateral, the lender can file a UCC-1 return that will serve as a guarantee for the property. Real estate that can be declared as collateral under a security agreement includes inventory of products, furniture, equipment used by a company, home furnishings and real estate owned by the company. The borrower is responsible for maintaining security in good condition in the event of a default. The property classified as collateral should not be removed from the premises unless the property is required in the normal framework of operations. The circumstances under which a collateral can be terminated should be explicitly defined in the share guarantee contract, and these generally include the following provisions: security agreements often contain agreements that define provisions relating to the evolution of funds, a repayment plan or insurance requirements. The borrower may also authorize the lender to keep the loan guarantees until repayment. Security agreements may also cover intangible assets such as patents or claims. Although the borrower continues to have the manner in which collateral is invested, the bank may impose restrictions to ensure that mortgaged assets are not invested in financial instruments considered risky by the bank.
These risky investments may include options or derivatives. In addition, assets held in an individual pension account (IRA), 401 (k) or any other pension account cannot be mortgaged as assets for a loan or mortgage.
