You may be thinking "why would I want to read the PPS Act?" Whether you are a lawyer or not, if you want to understand some popular PPS terms (for example, the definition of "security interest"), find a summary of key PPS concepts (for example, what “registration” really entails), or find examples to aid your understanding of the law, a quick search of the Act may just give you the answer you want. Here are some tips to get you started:
- look at section 10 for definitions,
- go to the beginning of each part of the Act for a guide to that part (usually in the form of a summary), or
- search the word "example" to locate various examples provided by the drafters of the legislation (for example, in section 3 there are examples of what the term "personal property" includes).
The PPS Act is not a simple piece of legislation to master, but some PPS answers are easier to find than others. For in-depth PPS analysis or expert legal advice, definitely consult an expert! (And Legal Know-How can help you.)
