Secured transactions are an important feature of the US law and economy. The rules set forth by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) that harmonizes the law of sales and other commercial transactions across the United States, assure lenders of legal protection in case of problems, which in turn encourages lower interest rates for borrowers.
