Commercial Chattel Mortgage

A Chattel Mortgage occurs where a finance lender provides a loan or finance facility to a taxpayer and the taxpayer uses that facility to purchase an asset such as a motor vehicle. Unlike hire purchase agreements, under a chattel mortgage a taxpayer becomes the owner of the motor vehicle at the time that the agreement is entered into. Security for this form of car finance is a mortgage over the vehicle purchased.


How does a Chattel Mortgage work?
