Specific Security Agreement (Chattel Mortgage)

A Specific Security Agreement (formerly Chattel Mortgage) facility can benefit those small to medium sized businesses that account for their business using the Cash Method.

Like the other financing products, you have full use of the equipment during the term. You have the security of a predictable monthly payment, which can be lowered by including either a deposit or an end of term “balloon / Residual”. Unlike other products, however, you have ownership of the equipment from the beginning. It is simply a loan secured by a mortgage over the equipment.

A balloon is the amount that will need to be paid at the end of the term (much like a residual on a lease). Having a balloon put into your agreement lowers the payments which might better suit your cash flow and whether you have a balloon or not is entirely up to you. However, you may choose to pay the loan down to zero which means once the final payment is made there is nothing else to pay.
