Mortgage Recordation

Preferred Mortgage: The FSM maritime act 1997 has the provisions for the recordation of security –related instruments and documents of the title. This Mortgage recordation gives notice to creditors, purchasers, suppliers and other parties with an interest in such transactions, and furnishes an internationally enforceable structure for the protection of those legal rights recorded with respect to a vessel of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). According to a mortgage act ,it give priority to the lender’s mortgage lien over those of certain other claimants.

Continuing a Previously Recorded Foreign Mortgage: 

To continue the preferred status of a previously recorded foreign mortgage, owners may submit the recorded foreign mortgage and a signed mortgage instrument which will be recorded when the vessel is registered in the MISR-FSM. This mortgage instrument will change the governing law of the mortgage to reflect the MISR as the law governing the mortgage

Security Interests: An MISR preferred mortgage may secure sale and lease transactions, contingent and future obligations, the Japanese ne-teito type of floating mortgage facility, advances and repayments, guarantees and multiple types of collateralization incidental to the diversified ownership of more than one vessel.
