Due Diligence Enquiries
We encourage our clients to involve us from the early stages in a business or property acquisition. Often, the inquiries you make before an agreement is signed can significantly influence your subsequent negotiations.
We also deal with post contractual due diligence inquiries, and together with your financial advisers, to investigate relevant issues, so that you know exactly what it is that you are buying.
Personal Property Securities
In tough economic times it is important to ensure that you do not let anything slip through the cracks. The Personal Property Securities Act regime establishes a national security register for the benefit of businesses operating within the finance sector, leasing or hire arrangements, the construction industry and other industries where retention of title plays a key role in the provision of goods and services.
Secured parties can register their security interest in collateral owned by the debtor on one national database.
If you are a supplier and you are not making use of the PPS regime, ask us how your business and security of payment arrangements can be improved .
