Security Interests in Real Property: Remedies on Default (1975)

Keywords: remedy; default; mortgage; agreement; sale; personal; covenant; foreclosure; redemption; reinstatement; conveyance; security; real; property; land

In British Columbia, there are two principal devices used to create consensual security interests in land-the mortgage and the agreement for sale. Although the devices are functionally identical, the law and practice relating to them diverges on a number of points of detail. This project examines one point of that divergence-with respect to remedies-and considers ways to introduce some uniformity to the law.
