Disputing a PPSR Registration - A Practical Guide, S3 Episode 6 of Think Foley's CPD podcast, is now live and ready for download!

🎧 Listen to the episode here: https://apple.co/3l304iU

In the first episode of the Commercial series, Mark McKillop addresses how to go about removing or amending a PPSR registration. He discusses the administrative and judicial processes for disputing a PPSR registration, the nature of the judicial process, and some tips and pitfalls of disputing the registration.
