Chattel Mortgage

A Chattel Mortgage is a commercial finance product enabling the customer to take ownership of the asset from the start of the loan agreement, with the financier securing their financial interest by registering a charge over the asset.

How does a Chattel Mortgage work?

Using a Chattel Mortgage a customer is advanced the full purchase price of their asset (incl GST) form the financier, and takes ownership of the asset at the time of purchase. Much like a house mortgage, the financier takes a charge over the asset (chattel) to secure their loan. At the end of the term the customer can then take ownership of the asset (if all principle and interest has been repaid), continue on with the chattel mortgage for any residual amount (that would have been agreed upon at the start of the term), or trade the asset in for a new one and take out another chattel mortgage.
