Virginia Secured Transactions Under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code: Forms and Practice Manual

Virginia Secured Transactions Under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code: Forms and Practice Manual

Prominent Virginia attorney, Margaret W. Swartz, has drawn from her extensive experience to bring you this practical, easy-to-use book, containing a comprehensive collection of all the current rules of  Article 9, along with extensive commentaries on how they affect the forms and procedures used in Virginia today.

The First Edition of your Manual was published in 2001, following the adoption by the Virginia General Assembly of revised UCC Article 9.  What was once commonly referred to as “Revised Article 9” is now firmly entrenched in the legal practice as simply “Article 9.”  This Second Edition of Virginia Secured Transactions Under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code:  Forms and Practice Manual provides a comprehensive update of the Manual to present an overview of Article 9 for Virginia commercial law practitioners in 2014 and beyond, and conveniently provides useful forms on the accompanying CD for your immediate use.

A number of changes to the second edition were made in this update, including:

  • Updated case law developments with citations.
  • Updated practice pointers concerning loans secured by virtual currency.
  • Updated forms, including the Landlord Waiver (Form 14-6) and Security Agreement (Entity Debtor) (Form 14-56).
  • All forms conveniently provided on the accompanying CD for your immediate use.
