Learn the latest steps on Iowas debt collection within commercial and agricultural areas.

Many creditors find it challenging to keep advised as to recent legal developments affecting collections. The difficulty in staying well informed arises from the fact that collections practices touch upon so many areas of the law. Knowledge of traditional contract principles, secured transactions, banking practices, and the procedural requirements for litigating the collection of debt all have bearing on debt collection. This topic will cover numerous recent developments in Iowa collection law, and is designed to help those regularly engaging in commercial and agricultural debt collection in Iowa. You will learn steps to take to avoid turning debt collection into litigation, as well as learn how to litigate a collection suit more efficiently, should litigation become unavoidable.

Learning Objectives
  • You will be able to describe how to refute arguments that attempt to invalidate a charging order that requires a limited liability company to pay a distribution to a creditor that would otherwise be paid to judgment debtor.
  • You will be able to recognize whether a participation agreement involves a sale of undivided ownership interests in an entire loan or merely establishes a debt or creditor relationship.
  • You will be able to discuss the relative priorities of an agricultural supply dealer lien versus a traditional secured creditor in sale proceeds.
  • You will be able to explain when a lender involved in a judicial proceeding does not need to obtain a mediation release before filing to foreclose a mortgage on agricultural property.
