Lobel Financial Dealer Agreement
“The company`s mission is to provide its business partners with a simple and reliable financing solution that meets their needs,” said Joe Torres, Team Leader of Lobel Business Development. A California appeals court ruled that a buyer of conditional sales contracts was liable for the debts of two failed car dealerships because the main storage lender retained the vehicle`s title certificates. [Ron Miller Enterprises, Inc., vs. Lobel Financial Corp., Inc., 2019 Westlaw 1199523 (Cal.App.)] If this passage from Quartz really means that someone who buys cat paper from a car dealership is acting commercially unreasonably if it does not verify the title, it means that the agent did not meet the appropriate business standards in the case of Ron Miller. “Good faith” is defined in section 9102(43) as “honesty and adherence to appropriate fair trade standards.” It should be remembered that a buyer of cat paper derived from this inventory must act in good faith to impose himself against a previous inventory lender and that he must act in good faith in accordance with .9330 (a) (1). So if I read Quartz correctly, the buyer doesn`t have priority over the inventory lender. The irony is that, although Quartz was relevant to the analysis of the “good faith” of `9330 (which the court totally omitted), Quartz is absolutely irrelevant in determining the rights of two opposing sure parties, that is, the inventory lender vis-à-vis the buyer of the chat document. Section 9330 occupies this area, and it would be strange if a buyer of Chattel paper, which was a priority after 9330, was somehow responsible for the car dealership`s debt under a broad quartz reading. It should also be remembered that the former holder of Quartz was not a section 9 creditor; Therefore, the priority rules of section 9 were probably negligible in this case. Facts: A stock lender has granted short-term loans to two car dealerships.
For each vehicle, dealers have entered into an agreement identifying this vehicle as a safety. The inventory lender took possession of each vehicle`s title certificate and filed UCC-1 financing returns against each dealer. Reasons: The Court of Appeal first found that “collateral agreements” would amount to safety agreements and that an interest in safety had been created for vehicles: Referring to Quartz of Southern California, Inc. v. Mullen Bros., Inc., 151 Cal.App.4th 901 (2007), the Court of Appeal then found that the assignee was entitled to respond to the inventory lender. The Tribunal had held that Quartz could be distinated because in this case it was the rights of a party that was actually acting on a right to the vehicles in question, unlike the inventory lender in this case (which claimed only a safety interest in the vehicles). However, the Court of Appeal found that the assignee was liable for the dealers` debts and that Quartz and this case were congruent, even though Quartz does not include Section 9 of the UCC: the dealers then sold the vehicles to conditional sales contracts. These contracts were then sold to an agent.
After the traders refused their obligations to the stock lender, the stock lender sued the agent under the theory that the agent should have paid the stock lender to acquire the securities certificates. The Tribunal ruled in favour of the assignee and found (1) that the inventory lender did not intend to create an interest in vehicle safety and (2) that the assignee had no obligation to pay the inventory lender.
