When it is necessary or desirable to perfect security interests in aircraft, engines, propellers or spare parts in the United States a lender must consider a multitude of issues. For many lenders and their counsel the process of recording instruments with the Federal Aviation Administration (the "FAA") and registering aircraft in the United States needlessly remains a mystery. The following is an explanation of the most critical issues a lender must address to ensure that documents submitted to the FAA will be accepted for recording.
I have a customer who was a partial recipient of loan proceeds. He asked that his part be disbursed in several cashier's checks made payable to his son.

Regarding HMDA, we have two different answers as to what defines a Bridge loan. They are basically the same answers with one exception: if the loan is secured by BOTH dwellings (existing one and one to be purchased); OR if the loan is secured by ONE dwelling (either existing or one to be purchased). As I said, I understand consistency is the key to remaining violation free in this area, but again, I would like to know how the majority views this detail of a Bridge loan.
