Subordination And Postponement Agreement

An agreement on these terms constitutes total or profound subordination of one secured creditor to another.[7] A subordination agreement may limit the scope of subordination, for example to a limited amount in dollars, for a specified period of time or during other conditions, and contain some of the more complex provisions of an interconnection agreement, as explained below. However, the typical subordination agreement is a unilateral subordination by a subordinate creditor to a priority creditor. With regard to payments, creditors are free to agree among themselves who will be paid and when[1]. With respect to security rights, the Security of Personal Property Act[2] (the “Act”) contains complex priority rules that determine the primacy between the interests of competing securities and the same collateral. However, creditors may enter into agreements to confirm or modify the priority that would have their security interests within the meaning of the law[3]. As a general rule, these agreements can and are also affected by the priority of payments[4]. Agreements have different denominations, such as. Β subordination agreements, priority agreements or interconnection agreements. While there are no well-established rules, which any type of agreement does, there are typical conditions in any agreement that differ from the terms of other agreements. This article discusses the different types of agreements dealing with priority topics, the typical notions they have and the differences between them. A deferral agreement deals only with the question of the payments that a debtor must make to its creditor and not with the security interest that the debtor grants.

In the context of a deferral agreement, the suspensive creditor agrees that he will postpone the receipt of payments by the debtor under certain conditions, for example. B until the priority creditor is paid in full. While a deferral gives priority to a creditor over the payment of the common debtor, it generally does not recreate any security interest that a creditor might have[5]. [5] The suspensive creditor may not retain any security interest requiring subordination, or he has agreed to postpone payment, but not to subordinate his interest as security. [6] There could be another agreement on payments to the subordinate creditor, for example. B the authorization of certain defined “eligible payments”, as long as the debtor is not in arrears with the priority creditor. . . .
