Lock Box Service Agreement
The Forms Professionals Trust! ™
A lock box agreement is a service offered by banks to companies in which the company receives payments by mail to a post office box and the bank picks up the payments several times a day, deposits them into the company's account, and notifies the company of the deposit. This enables the company to put the money to work as soon as it's received, but the amounts must be large in order for the value obtained to exceed the cost of the service.
This lock box agreement is to be used by the collateral agent for a syndicate of banks to receive, control and apply to the Borrower's line of credit, payments made on the debtor's accounts receivable collateral. This agreement when executed, perfects the secured party's security interest in funds in the lock box account by control under Uniform Commercial Code § 9-104(a)(3) by making the agent bank the owner of and party in whose name the account is held. Because the account is controlled by ownership in the name of the secured party, the lock box bank cannot offset claims it has against the debtor against the account as provided in Uniform Commercial Code § 9-340(c). To avoid any doubt on this issue, the lock box bank expressly waives its rights of setoff. On the other hand, the agent bank agrees to indemnify the lock box bank for any unpaid fees or claims concerning the account, in the event the debtor fails to do so.
