Creditors A and B enter into a subordination agreement on the basis of benefit, as ABC co. obtains operating funds to maintain its operations, and creditor B agrees to pay a royalty to Creditor A in exchange for creditor A who agrees to subordinate his first priority security interest in the inventory and accounts resulting from the acquisition of ABC Co.`s purchase commodity. The subordination agreement contains no provision for the method of claim in the event that creditors A or B violate the subordination agreement, thus relying on the UCC`s method of prejudice and possibly on the common law applicable to contracts. In certain circumstances, the party in conflict wants to retain a sophisticated and subordinate pledge right. In these cases, the secured party in dispute and the lender may enter into a subordination agreement. Many of the issues raised in the context of a contractual pawning authorization also apply as part of a subordination agreement. In situations where the lender may be over-guaranteed, it is more common to consider the risks that an opposite security party, with a subordinate pawn, will sue for enforced execution against applicable equipment when its right to pledge is perfected. In these circumstances, it is more likely that the litigant will force the action if it considers that there is still excess revenue for the application of its second right of guarantee. Although subordination agreements are systematically beneficial to all parties, this article deals with a particular circumstance where the contractual expectation of the priority creditor cannot be protected from a subordinate creditor, since the principal creditor does not rely on a less elaborate subordination agreement. In particular, this article deals with a situation in which the subordination agreement on the damages assessment method is silent and is implicitly based on the claim method contained in the UCC which, under the scenario below, could restrict the priority creditor`s right to claim damages against a subsequent creditor. An example of the types of risks associated with a contractual solution, not a UCC-3 funding statement, can be found by verifying whether a specific pawning agreement is binding on the opposite secure party. What will happen, for example, if the secure party that signs the communication on the instructions later sells the transaction subject to the adversarial establishment of the financing and, as part of that transaction, rejects the establishment of the financing in its entirety? Does the right to pledge require the litigant to inform the assignee of the right to the right to the pledge, resulting in a breach of the right to contract if the lender is somehow harmed by the omission of the secured party in dispute? If the agent is not aware of the notice of deposit, is he nevertheless related to that? It seems reasonable to assume that the litigant can only cede to the assignee the rights it holds at the time of the assignment under the applicable law (and in this case, the secure party in dispute has already released its lien on the applicable equipment).
Even if a UCC-3 funding statement is not filed to remove the applicable devices, the secure party in dispute may execute a deposit agreement or similar documents in order to contractually release its right to pledges to the applicable device (or recognize that it has never had and will never claim such a right of bet in a document sometimes referred to as “non-interest”).
