This article will examine this new relationship as it applies to a specific problem created by the interaction between Article 9 and bankruptcy law: the timing of a "transfer" when a security interest is challenged as preferential in a bankruptcy proceeding. Resolution of this question is often critical for determining the secured party's ability to recover assets pledged as collateral when the debtor goes into bankruptcy. The article will begin by explaining the "timing of transfer" problem as it arose under Article 9 and the Bankruptcy Act. Then it will describe and evaluate the new solution provided by the Bankruptcy Reform Act.
