Limitation on Liens
An aspect of some bonds in which the issuer is only allowed to grant liens on its assets in certain circumstances. A bond with a limitation on liens generally carries lower risk because, in the event of default, the issuer's assets have fewer liens from secured creditors. This means that the bondholders have a higher priority on the proceeds of liquidation.
