Do I need a General Security Agreement?
A General Security Agreement can be used by your business to secure a commercial loan. It’s a good idea to have a General Security Agreement so that your business is protected. A written agreement will clearly outline the property subject to the security so that there is no confusion about what assets are exposed if you can’t repay the loan.
All security agreements have to be registered on the Personal Property Securities Register maintained by the government.
We’ll work with you to understand your business and goals so that we can deliver a tailored agreement suitable for your business.
What You Get
What happens if I can’t repay the loan?
General Security Agreements are commonly used but can have significant implications for your business. It’s important you get legal advice about the obligations you have if you fail to repay your loan. It is possible that the lender will be able to enforce their right to recover any property you have nominated as security.
