UCC 9-201. General effectiveness of security agreement

(1) Except as otherwise provided in the Uniform Commercial Code, a security agreement is effective according to its terms between the parties, against purchasers of the collateral, and against creditors.

(2) A transaction subject to this chapter is subject to any applicable rule of law which establishes a different rule for consumers and is also subject to ORS 83.510 (Definitions for ORS 83.510 to 83.680) to 83.680 (Waiver of provisions of ORS 83.510 to 83.680) on retail installment contracts and ORS chapter 725 on small loans.

(3) In case of conflict between this chapter and a rule of law, statute or rule described in subsection (2) of this section, the rule of law, statute or rule controls. Failure to comply with a statute or rule described in subsection (2) of this section has only the effect the statute or rule specifies.

(4) This chapter does not:

(a) Validate any rate, charge, agreement or practice that violates a rule of law, statute or regulation described in subsection (2) of this section; or

(b) Extend the application of the rule of law, statute, or rule to a transaction not otherwise subject to it. [2001 c.445 §11]

Notes of Decisions

Where creditor with prior perfected secured interest opts not to exercise elective remedies against debtor, creditor maintains security interest and sub­se­quent garnishor takes subject to creditor so that may trace and recapture collateral funds from garnishor.
