"Fair and just" means more than just a redemption plan.
At the Federal National Mortgage Association v. Village Green I GP, Judge Anderson of the United States District Court for the Western District of Tennessee was faced with an appeals against a bankruptcy court order that upheld a scheme in Section 11 that provided for the expiration of a secure Federal National Mortgage Association ("Fannie Mae") debt.
One of the changes to the scheme suggested by the Village Green I GP borrower was to amend certain credit documentation to remove the obligation to pay Fannie Mae back taxes, insurances and principal on a per month basis. Contrary to the pre-competition loans, Village Green would deposit these resources and submit to Fannie Mae, under the amended conditions set out in the scheme, quarterly notifications.
Furthermore, the conditions of the Village Green Plans allowed greater flexibility in the administration of the real estate, allowing for the possibility of changing house managements or making changes to the lease without the agreement of Fannie Mae. When examining the enforcement of a guaranteed debt and the enforceable "fair and equitable" standards, magistrates, commentators noted, and practicians often concentrate only on the conditions of repayment, i.e., the appropriate duration of the credit and the interest rates, which are usually determined by referring to the United States Supreme Court ruling in Till v. SCS Credit Corp.
Sometimes the schemes in Section 11 do not even refer to other conditions after the endorsement for collateralised exposures. While the Village Green ruling is not the first case in which some consideration has been given to non-arithmetic notions of changing a secure demand, very few public policy rulings directly tackle the problem. Accordingly, when the ''fair and equitable'' standards are applied to the facts of a particular case, it is often challenging to measure the appropriate significance to reflect changes in conditions other than the suggested amortisation of a collateralised exposure.
In order to complicate the matter, many of the suggested schemes do not, in fact, explicitly lay down conditions for the handling of collateralised debts that are not arithmetical or arithmetical, but only foresee the time and amount of payment to the holder of collateralised debts. Moreover, in some cases, there is often no mention of the issue of amended documentation to prove or improve secure debts or, apart from the time and amount of payment, of any other right attached to a secure debt.
Under these circumstances, a defendant may, without directing an opposing assured lender and the focus of the insolvency tribunal on the matter, later take the view that the assured defendant is not eligible for the issuing of new documentation to prove or improve his assured debt or for cover not explicitly provided for in the schedule.
Not hesitating, any secure lending company will tell you that these pages are full of many important privileges, in addition to the interest rates and credit payback schedule. Court has often found that a validated scheme substitutes the prior arrangement between a borrower and a believer. Thus, secure lenders and their lawyers should not concentrate on the interest and redemption schedule while they ignore or briefly shrink the other important conditions necessary to safeguard the securities and allow the secure borrower to assert his secure receivables after a schedule has been upheld.
Most of the time, regardless of the redemption of a collateralised debt, a schedule will not be just and just in relation to a collateralised debt, there will be a lack of documentation to substantiate and refine the collateralised debt and to provide further safeguards, at least involving covenants/negative agreements and defaults and remedies. When reviewing the "fair and equitable" standards in the context of planning negotiation or a disputed audit trial, the assured lenders and their attorneys would be well advised to consider intensively the conditions of the instrument that will regulate their assured demand for certification and any suggested changes to the conditions of the lending documentation prior to the submission.
Without the necessary care for these matters, a secure lender, after verification, can cause great difficulties and costs in trying to maintain the value of his securities and assert his secure debt.
