Commercial Security Agreement Powered By Docstoc
					This is an agreement whereby one party (the "Debtor") uses personal property, not real
property, as security or collateral for a loan. The Debtor pledges to the lender (the
"Secured Party") a security interest in the personal property until the loan is paid in full.
This particular agreement uses a fidelity bond as the security interest, but it can be
tailored to fit the specific needs of the drafting parties. This agreement should be used
by small businesses that want to use a bond or other personal property as collateral for
a loan.

Description: This is an agreement whereby one party (the "Debtor") uses personal property, not real property, as security or collateral for a loan. The Debtor pledges to the lender (the "Secured Party") a security interest in the personal property until the loan is paid in full. This particular agreement uses a fidelity bond as the security interest, but it can be tailored to fit the specific needs of the drafting parties. This agreement should be used by small businesses that want to use a bond or other personal property as collateral for a loan.
