How to Register in the Personal Property Registry
Most interests are registered by completing a financing statement and submitting it to Ardiel Agencies for registration in Alberta Personal Property Registry Electronic System (APPRES). Some interests can only be registered by specific representatives as they are for distinct purposes. One of our trained agents can provide more information about these interests.
Some interests must be registered within specific time frames to satisfy time limits in the Personal Property Security Act and other legislation. You should allow adequate lead time for processing if there are any legislative time limits for registration. If you are unsure if your interest has a time limitation, you may wish to take legal advice.
How Registrations are Handled in the Personal Property Registry
A secured party has obligations to ensure there are sufficient grounds for registration and that the registration is made in good faith. A failure to comply with this obligation could lead to a claim by any person suffering damages as a result of such registration. Ardiel Agencies will not be held liable if such an unsubstantiated claim is made.
When your interest is registered on APPRES, Ardiel Agencies will provide you with a verification statement confirming the registration information as it was recorded on APPRES. Check your verification statement carefully to make sure all information has been recorded accurately, if errors are detected, have the error amended immediately. The verification statement can be used to renew or discharge your registration.
