CHATTEL MORTGAGE

A Chattel Mortgage is a loan agreement whereby the financier advances you a loan for the purpose of purchasing a car or any other type of vehicle, business equipment or other goods. Under a Chattel Mortgage Loan Agreement, the customer takes ownership of the purchased equipment at the time of delivery. The financier is then able to take a ‘mortgage’ over the equipment to secure the loan and registering their interest in the equipment for the entire duration of the agreement by registering a charge over the goods. Once the loan contract is completed, the financier’s security interest is removed and the customer can enjoy a clear title over the car or business equipment.

    • You decided on the vehicle or equipment you wish to purchase.
    • You negotiate the cost of the equipment.
