The following Banking & Finance practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
A secured creditor has a variety of remedies available to it to realise value from the security. However, it is prudent for any secured creditor to check a number of issues before exercising those rights. Inevitably, a secured creditor will be motivated by a desire to maximise the chances that it will be repaid in full. It will want to ensure that enforcement of security is the best way to achieve that objective. .
If a decision to enforce security is made then the security holder will need to assess which method of enforcement will provide the most effective and efficient means of achieving the overall objective.

does any action need to be taken to improve the security eg upgrading an equitable right to a legal right
do members of any syndicates of lenders or their agent need to be involved
