Much has happened since the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 commenced operation four years ago. This innovative and complex legislation overhauled many long entrenched common law and equitable principles relating to personal property securities. Several court decisions have shed light on the scope and application of the legislation including what is encompassed by a ‘security interest’, the consequences of failure to register, and the consequences of mistakes on the register. Linda Widdup will discuss the decisions of the Australian courts, as well as the recommendations arising from a statutory review of the legislation.
