Security (1)
  1. Introduction
    1. What is Security?
      1. To ensure contractual performance
      2. Benefits of security?
        1. Enforcement of contract may be difficult & time consuming, as you have to go to court etc. Security avoids this.
        2. Accessory in Nature
          1. Depends on the existence of a valid principal obligation between debtor & creditor, eg. Loan
            1. THEREFORE: If principal obligation fails (if unlawful), security (agreement) fails
              1. Extinction/fulfilment of principal obligation leads to termination of security
                1. NOTE: If subject of security is destroyed, principal obligation will still remain
          2. Types of Security
            1. Real
              1. Forms of real security
                1. Special mortgage bond over immovable property (mortgage bond)
                  1. Creditor obtains registration of bond over immovable property mortgaged as security by debtor / 3rd party
                    1. NOTE: Creditor = ‘mortgagee’, Debtor = ‘mortgagor’, who owns the property
                    2. Formation REQUIREMENTS
                      1. 1. Valid principal obligation
                        1. 2. Bond established over property of somebody other than creditor/mortgagee
                          1. 3. Mortgagor must be owner of property
                            1. 4. Property must be immoveable
                              1. 5. Registration
                                1. Once fully registered, it will be deemed to give rise to a limited real right
                                  1. Registration is vital as bonds rank according to date of registration
                                  2. Execution by owner / authorised conveyancer
                        2. Mortgage Bonds for future debts (eg. medical expenses)
                          1. 'Covering Bond' - May register mortgage bond to secure future debt
                            1. Requirements
                              1. 1. Specify future debts which MB intended to cover
                                1. 2. Fixed sum covered by bond Can’t be floating amount
                            2. Features and Effects of Mortgage Bonds
                              1. Mortgagee acquires (ltd) real right in , but THEY ARE NOT EQUIVALENT TO AN OWNER
                                1. Result of this is that If you are not the owner, you cannot pass on the rights of ownership. You cannot transfer greater rights than you have. Linked to this, is that you cannot dispose of the property if you are a mortgagee without recourse to the courts or without the owners permission.
                                  1. HOWEVER where the mortgagor’s estate has been sequestrated or the principal obligation is not discharged, the mortgagee may approach the court, and without the owners consent, obtain a order for execution from the court on the property.
                                  2. Position of M/ee where other creditors attach mortgaged property?
                                    1. Because it’s a real right, it means it is enforceable against third parties
                                      1. Debtor Solvent
                                        1. If there was an attachment by other creditors, and the property were sold as a result of that attachment, and money is brought in, then the mortgagee has a preference to that money. So they will be paid before the other creditors, and if there is anything left over, the mortgagor will receive the rest. So the mortgagee is a secured creditor in the case of insolvency or solvency.
                                        2. Debtor Insolvent
                                          1. Mortgagees are secured creditors in the estate, so they will be paid before the preferent and concurrent creditors.
                                    2. Limitations on M/or’s ownership of property? The mortgagor can still use the property, and continue to live on it/use it as business premises, however if it comes to the mortgagees attention that the mortgagor is doing something that diminishes the value of the property, then the mortgagee can approach the courts for relief
                                      1. When will Mortgagee NOT be secured?
                                        1. Requirements
                                          1. 1. Security is a mortgage bond
                                            1. 2. Parties purport to secure a previously unsecured debt that is older than 2 months
                                              1. 3. Debtor is declared insolvent within 6 months of lodging of bond
                                                1. IF ALL REQUIREMENTS MET: mortgage bond will not be valid, and it will NOT give rise to security.
                                        2. When will a mortgage bond be terminated?
                                          1. 1. Discharge / failure of principal obligation
                                            1. 2. Destruction of property
                                              1. 3. Release by Mortgagee

                                      2. Forms of real security over MOVEABLE property (All NEED AGREEMENT, PLEDGE ALSO DELIVERY)
                                        1. Pledge
                                          1. Pledge
                                            1. Moveable property --> Any ‘thing’ BUT NOT ‘future things’
                                              1. Creditor = ‘pledgee’ Debtor / 3rd party owner of property = ‘pledgor’
                                                1. If you have the requirements of agreement and delivery this will give rise to a ltd real right
                                                  1. FUNCTIONS OF DELIVERY
                                                    1. Gives rise to physical control so pledgee can protect their security
                                                      1. Notifies public lets public know that they can’t trade for this property
                                                      2. No delivery?
                                                        1. Pledge is VALID btwn parties BUT… if 3rd party bona fide (in good faith) obtains real rights in property, then pledgee NOT secured
                                                        2. What happens if there is delivery, but pledgor/debtor is declared Insolvent?
                                                          1. Just like a mortgage bond, the pledgee will have a preference (preferent creditor) to the proceeds of the sale of the property
                                                            1. AND IF proceeds insufficient to settle principal obligation, pledgee = concurrent creditor
                                                          2. Forms of Delivery
                                                            1. Real Delivery
                                                              1. Object is physically handed over to pledgee
                                                              2. Constructive 'deemed' Delivery
                                                                1. Object not handed over to pledgee physically BUT: Pledgee still exercises control over object
                                                            2. POSSESSION
                                                              1. So pledgee must have POSSESSION of property, whether physical/mental possession
                                                                1. Pledgee may retain possession of object UNTIL debt discharged
                                                          3. The main things that distinguish a pledge from a, is that it is moveable property, and that there is no requirement of registration, but rather a requirement of delivery, and thirdly, the fact that the pledgee has to possess the property.
                                                            1. Rights & obligations of pledgee

                                                                          1. UNLESS paratie executie clause, which allows them to execute without courts approval

                                                                                                    1. Solvent debtor?
                                                                                                      1. If the debtor is solvent and they sell the property to a 3rd party, or a creditor executes on the property, because the bond holder has REAL RIGHTS, he can claim from that 3rd person or that creditor.
                                                                                                      2. Insolvent debtor?
                                                                                                        1. If there is a insolvent debtor, the property vests in the trustee, however unlike a general notarial bond, the holder of a special notarial bond is a secured creditor, and will be paid first from the proceeds of the sale from the SPECIFIC property that acted as security.
                                                                                                      3. Section 88 of the Insolvency Act
                                                                                                        1. This section says that a bond will be invalid if the bond tries to secure a debt that is older than 2 months, and where the bond is lodged for registration within 6 months of the debtors insolvency as invalid wont give rise to valid security.
                                                                                                    2. Which rights arise following agmt & registration?
                                                                                                      1. Following AGREEMENT, you will only have personal rights. Following registration, which occurs after agreement, there will be real rights arising from the notarial bond, but this will only happen if the bond is a SPECIAL NOTARIAL BOND. So from GENERAL NOTARIAL BONDS you get personal rights, SNB’s you get real rights. In this, with SNB’s if you want a real right you must have CORPOREAL PROPERTY forming the subject matter of the bond.
                                                                                                      2. Termination
                                                                                                        1. Failure / discharge of principal obligation

                                                                                                              1. How does CISD function as security?
