Advising North Carolina institutions on secured transactions

Lenders may secure loans made to borrowers by requiring down payments or other collateral. In the event of default, the borrower cedes the right to collateral used to secure the loan. There are limits to what types of collateral may be used to secure a loan. Mr. Honeycutt can advise you about any of the following legal issues:

  • Secured transactions
  • Letters of credit
  • Audits
  • Loan workouts
  • Bankruptcy reorganization
  • Remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)

He understands issues relating to secured, asset-based transactions.

Credit checks and due diligence may reveal risks or liabilities that could raise interest rates on the loan or otherwise affect the eligibility of your business for financing.
