Whatever sums are expended by Secured Party, plus interest at the rate of ...... percent (......%) per year, will become immediately due and payable by Debtor to Secured Party. This debt is to be secured under this Agreement by the Collateral.

b. Costs of Realizing on Collateral. Any costs incurred by Secured Party in the event of default by Debtor on the liabilities, including costs of retaking, holding, and selling the Collateral, and including court costs, attorney fees, and legal expenses, will become additional debts of Debtor to Secured Party, payable on demand and secured by the Collateral.

a. Acceleration of Maturity. All liabilities become immediately due and payable, at the option of Secured Party. Secured Party will send written notice of the demand to Debtor, by registered mail.

b. Other Rights and Remedies. In addition to all other rights and remedies granted to Secured Party, it also has all the rights and remedies available to Secured Party under the UCC.

Secured Party may require Debtor upon default to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Secured Party at a reasonably convenient place designated by Secured Party.

Any notice of resale of the Collateral by Secured Party to Debtor will be deemed reasonably and properly given if mailed at least [number] days before the disposition of the Collateral.
