The Enforcement of Jersey Security

[Dynamic date]

01 January 2017

This guide sets out the procedure for enforcing Jersey security interests taken under the Security Interests (Jersey) Law 1983 (the 1983 Law) and some of the main legal factors that should be considered when dealing with enforcement. This guide does not consider the Security Interests (Jersey) Law 2012 (the 2012 Law). For information on the 2012 Law please see our guide on the 2012 Law here. This guide focuses on the enforcement of Jersey security interests over units in a Jersey Property Unit Trust (JPUT) and shares in a Jersey company, though the principles discussed are generally equally applicable to other types of Jersey security interest.
