Webinar - Consumer Collection Series: Repossession Practices, Compliance & Limitations
Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

No lender likes to do repossessions, but it may be the only way to collect on a loan. Making a mistake in the repossession process can result in losing the right to pursue the debtor for a deficiency and cause substantial damage to your institution. This webinar will explain all aspects of the repossession process regarding non-real estate collateral, starting with the decision to repossess and ending with the disposition of the collateral at a private or public sale. Learn the steps to properly repossess and dispose of collateral under UCC Article 9.


  • What requirements does UCC Article 9 impose on the lender?
  • When is it legally permissible to conduct self-help repossession?
  • Can the lender choose between a private or public sale?

  • What is required for a commercially reasonable sale?
  • What if the debtor files bankruptcy?
    • UCC Article 9 repossession checklist to ensure you don’t forget a step in the repossession process
    • UCC notice of sale form
