Deeds of Priority and Letters of Waiver explained
A Deed of Priority is a legal agreement which sets out the agreed terms between different lenders. Where a lender's security competes with that of another lender over the same assets, a Deed of Priority sets out how the monies from the realisation of such assets will be dealt with.
A Letter of Waiver is issued by a secured lender in favour of another lender, waiving a particular asset from its security. The waiver can usually be withdrawn upon written notice.
