SECTION 427 SEARCH UNDER THE BANK ACT

Canadian Banks have the right to lend money to wholesalers, retailers, shippers and dealers in "products of agriculture, products of aquaculture, products of the forest, products of the quarry and mine, products of the sea, lakes, and rivers, of goods, wares and merchandise, manufactured or otherwise" on the security of such goods or products, and to lend money to manufacturers on their goods and inventories.

Under the Bank Act the borrower must sign a particular document that provides the bank the first preferential lien on the goods or equipment. The Bank then registers a 'Notice if Intention' to take the goods as security, to perfect its security interest.

A 'Bank Act Search' determines if a company or individual is under an agreement with their bank as described above.

BULK SALES ACT SEARCHES - Ontario Only

Sales of large quantities of stock or the sale of assets and equipment of the business itself outside the regular course of business are considered a sale "in bulk". The Bulk Sales Act is designed to protect the creditors of a business owner by requiring the owner to follow the procedures of the Act for sales outside the regular course of business.

If a buyer wishes to purchase the assets and equipment of a business, the seller "in bulk" must provide an affidavit stating that all creditors have been paid, or they will be paid from the proceeds of the sale. In some cases the buyer pays an assigned trustee creditors of the business may wish to waive their rights in which case the proceeds are paid.

A 'Bulk Sales search' determines if a bulk sales affidavit has been filed with the Superior Court of Justice.

EXECUTIONS

If a creditor has taken the appropriate litigation steps and fails to collect moneys owed by a debtor in default, a judge may issue a Writ of Execution. Once a judgement is issued and the debtor does not make payment the writ will be registered at the local Sheriff's office. In several areas, as in Toronto, the Sheriffs office and Land Registry office have amalgamated to simplify the search and registration process of executions.

As with other security searches an individuals complete and correct name is required in order to pull the correct information. When searching a company name, it's good practice to refer to the companies originating charter documents.

An Execution search: If no record is found in the database, a certificate can be obtained from the Sheriffs office stating no record is found. If an execution exists a summary printout can be obtained for an additional government fee. The printout is only a summary of the execution and not the actual document. Copies of the actual documents can be obtained for an additional fee.

BANKRUPTCY

Initiation of Bankruptcy Proceedings

Debtors have three options when attempting to rectify their financial difficulties. A debtor may:
  1. Make a proposal to his/her creditors
  2. Make a voluntary assignment in bankruptcy
  3. Permit the creditors to petition for a receiving order
  • Proposal
    If a debtor faces financial difficulty, or the secured creditors have notified the debtor of their intention to claim the monies owed, the debtor can file with the Official Receiver a notice of intention to make a proposal to its creditors.
  • Voluntary assignment
    Under a voluntary assignment the debtor files with the Official Receiver an assignment of his or her property for the benefit of the creditors, the assignee's name is left blank. The Official Receiver then selects a trustee to accept the debtors' property and to proceed with the bankruptcy.
  • Petition
    The first two described above are voluntary actions a debtor can take, this last procedure are the action(s) of the creditor(s). If a debtor, as defined by the act, has debts in excess of $1000 owing to more than one creditor and has committed an act of bankruptcy, a creditor may file a petition for a receiving order with the Registrar in Bankruptcy. This can be done at anytime within 6 months after the act of bankruptcy occurred.

    If the debtor does not object to the petition, the registrar issues a receiving order making the debtor 'bankrupt' and permits the appointment of a trustee to administer the estate.

    More information on the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act can be found here:
    http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/B-3/

Bankruptcy Search: Conducted at the local Bankruptcy Court office which covers the Petition records as well as the database to determine if a bankruptcy is in process declaring an individual or company bankrupt.
