The personal property security regime has a separate set of challenges for leasehold interests. This session looks at security problems for landlords and tenants and what to do about them:

  • Understanding when a PPS lease arises
  • Lease security deposits and the application of the PPS Act
  • Charging clauses in a lease  - lease incentives and abandoned goods
  • Acting for the landlord – searching the securities register
  • Release of security interests and correct form
  • Registering security interests – getting clear instructions
  • The lease and the operation of the PPS Act
  • What if the tenant has already signed the lease? – what to advise
  • Advising on finance documents and PPS obligations
Our presenter

Peter Mills, Special Counsel, Thynne & Macartney, Brisbane

Peter’s area of expertise for the last 14 years has been in Personal Property Securities Act (2009) (PPS), Creditor Recoveries, and Insolvency.

Peter is a recognised expert in the PPS and its interaction with other laws and registers (including insolvency under the Corporations Act (Cth)).

Peter is admitted as a lawyer in both Australia and Papua New Guinea and regularly advises interstate and overseas clients.  His extensive client base includes controllers (voluntary administrators and liquidators), trade creditors and suppliers, accountants, SME’s, subsidiaries of domestic and international companies, and other law firms (domestic and international).

Peter regularly advises clients as to the PPS registration process and how to minimise documentation and record keeping, saving tens (sometimes hundreds) of thousands of dollars in the PPS registration process. He also advises on the recovery of assets and debts, despite liquidators being appointed, by using the PPS instead of the courts.


This webinar is suitable for lawyers practising in property law – Australia wide. This webinar is for practitioners with some knowledge in this area and looking to improve their knowledge.
