A junior lender should apply for exemption from a certain class of collateral that a priority lender has not included in its asset base. Once it has been agreed that there will be a personal guarantee from the borrower`s client or a guarantee to the junior lender, the junior lender should ensure that the agreed rights are properly reflected in the interbank agreement and do not stop. 5. How does a junior lender best protect itself? Once a junior lender has a list of key issues, they should try to address them as early as possible in the process. An effective way to do this is to include these items in the maturity sheet with the borrower and ask the borrower to clarify them with the existing or proposed priority lender. Whether the main subordination conditions were included in an appointment sheet, request and verify a copy of the Intercreditor agreement at the beginning of the transaction. Eliminating time constraints often allows the primary lender to obtain the necessary approvals to change its form and negotiate a creative solution to a difficult problem for the junior lender and senior. Cooperation with high-level lenders, experienced in dealing with mezzanine or second-line lenders, who are familiar with standard protections for younger lenders or with whom a junior lender has already worked, can of course take a big step towards easing the process. In recent decades, the application of inter-10-language agreements (ICAs), which would have infringed voting rights, and the right to cash or other property payments for secured claims, have played an increasingly important role in bankruptcy cases.
Although the Bankruptcy Act provides that “subordination agreements” are enforceable in the event of bankruptcy as long as these agreements are enforceable under existing non-bankruptcy legislation, the handling of creditors` disputes over such agreements is inconsistent.1 While in each mezzanine loan or second mortgage , the loan or investment agreement is the main document that defines the lender`s rights and the lender`s limits. The intercreator agreement between the junior lender and the primary lender severely limits the exercise or enjoyment of its most important rights of the junior lender, including the right to pay interest (and, if applicable, capital) and the right to seize the loan and seize security.
