- Lenders will normally want security for any lending they make whether to individuals or businesses. This can range from guarantees to charges, mortgages and in the case of companies, debentures.
- The security will often be taken over land, whether freehold or leasehold, but in a commercial context can be over fixtures, fittings, equipment, machinery and intellectual property rights like patents and designs. Usually the security will be heavily weighted in favour of the lender and in some cases may prejudice the flexibility of the borrower to run his business.
