Senate. Comm. on the Judiciary. Act to prevent fraud in transfer of personal property, 1831
Senate No. 31 On February 16, 1831, the Committee on the Judiciary was asked to inquire if it would be useful to change the law that regulated
mortgages on personal property. The Committee delivered An Act to prevent fraud in the transfer of personal property, 1831. No mortgages on personal
property were valid against any person other than the parties thereto unless the property was delivered to and kept by the mortgagee and the transaction
recorded with the town clerk. All claimants to the property could be parties to any suits about it. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title
originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   Ordered, that the Committee on the Judiciary be directed to inquire into the expediency of so far altering the law relating to mortgages of personal property, as to render all such mortgages void unless recorded by the town clerk of the town in which mortgages resides, or otherwise amending the law on that subject.
