Blanket Lien

Blanket Lien

A lien on all or nearly all of a debtor's assets. In the event of default, the creditor has the right to take, and, at its discretion, sell off any or all of the assets covered under the blanket lien. Generally speaking, a blanket lien covers multiple assets that are specifically enumerated on the loan agreement, though, occasionally, a creditor can take other assets not listed as well. Some businesses use blanket liens to receive short-term financing.
