Statutory review of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009

The second of a series of consultation papers for the Statutory review of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009.

This consultation paper considers issues regarding

  • the creation and perfection of security interests
  • the taking free rules
  • the priority rules
  • other dealings in collateral.

This paper does not address questions that relate to the Register, even though the Register plays a key role in the perfection of security interests. The Register will be the subject of a later paper.
