fixed charge

Popular Terms
Lien or mortgage on a specific fixed-asset (such as a parcel of land) to secure the repayment of a loan. In this arrangement the asset is signed over to the creditor and the borrower would need the lender's permission to sell it. The lender also registers a charge against the asset which remains in force until the loan is repaid. Also called fixed debenture. See also floating charge and fixed charges.
