Personal Property Security Act
Personal Property Security Act
The system, for example, in British Columbia and most common-law provinces, whereby a person is required to register any interest that he has in the property of another before the security is valid. The Registry can therefore be used if an institution is considering taking security on various assets, or if a person is contemplating purchasing an item such as a vehicle and wants to ensure that he purchases it free and clear of any encumbrances.
