This chapter focuses on corporate debt, first considering several special features of corporate borrowing. It then discusses: debentures; secured debt (mortgages, fixed and floating charges); debenture holders’ remedies and the protection afforded by charges; the requirement to register charges; fixed and floating charges; the creation and effect of floating charges; distinguishing between fixed and floating charges; and the use of alternative security devices (‘quasi-security’) such as retention of title agreements.
