Businesses, boats, securities...

This recent post by Marshall Chambers looks at personal property and the issue of security interests under the new Personal Property Securities Act (Cth).  I suspect that we will hear more of this Act as it settles in.  It seems to have faced a few teething problems in terms of reliability of the register system in its first weeks of operation. It will be interesting to see if any disputes arise out of this, and how they will be resolved.


  1. Hello Kate. Thanks for your interest in my Marshall Chambers Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) post. I have another couple of scenarios on which I am working and hope to be in a position to post them shortly. I believe it will be very useful to agitate discussion about the PPSA from the perspective of enforcement of rights relating to security interests. That may help us to better understand how disputes will be resolved in the new regime.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment Ross. I'll be interested to see what you come up with.
