What Is A Springing Deposit Account Control Agreement

In a „frozen” control agreement, DACA provides that the borrower does not have access to the funds of the account(s) and that the lender has full control over the funds. However, in most cases, DACA provides that the borrower has free access to deposit accounts until the deposit bank receives an exclusive notification of control from the lender. As a general rule, such disclosure can only be made by the lender if the borrower is in default with the underlying loan. Such an agreement is commonly referred to as a „jumping” control agreement because the lender`s control over the account only takes effect after defined events. Once such notification has been made, the deposit bank will stop following the borrower`s instructions regarding the deposit account (deposit accounts) and will begin to follow the lender`s instructions, and only with them.
