This podcast evaluates when a transaction described as a “lease” will be considered a sale with a retention of a security interest and covered by Article 9. In particular, it will describe the situations that suggest that a lease is a true lease and those in which the lease is actually a disguised sale. The primary UCC provision associated with this inquiry is § 1-203, which contains the general rules of the road with respect to disguised leases.
