1) Accept a DACA form that has not been specifically established by this depository for use by this custodian; The debtor will provide the secured party with a contract to control the deposit account, duly executed on behalf of any financial institution with a deposit account of the debtor, as defined in this guarantee agreement. DACs are tripartite agreements between a lender (also known as a guaranteed party), a borrower and a custody institution. The purpose of a DACA is to allow a lender to take control of its borrower`s deposit accounts held by a deposit facility other than the lender, in order to allow the lender to enhance its security interest in deposit accounts. Some DACs are structured so that the lender has exclusive control over deposit accounts immediately after DACA der. Other DADs allow the borrower to access deposits, withdrawals and transfers to deposit accounts until the lender informs the custodian institution that the lender is taking exclusive control and the borrower no longer has access, withdrawn or transferred deposit accounts. The first instruction — An instruction given to the bank comes from the lender, which orders it to stop following the debtor`s instructions. The initial statement often contains a disposition order from the secure part, which allows the insured party to manage the flow of money from the deposit account. An admission by the custodian bank that DACA must certify the lender`s “control”; A statement from the deposit-making bank that the accounts concerned are “deposit accounts”; An agreement by the deposit-taking bank not to change the name or number of the deposit account without the lender`s written consent; An agreement between the deposit bank and the borrower to notify the lender before the closing of the deposit accounts and allow the lender to adopt a new DACA for all deposit accounts in which the borrower could defer cash security; and – An agreement of the deposit bank to subordinate all the pledge fees it has to the account and waive its right of clearing on the deposit account, with the exception of the amount of deposits credited to the account that are not repaid and the ordinary service charges charged by the deposit bank. Debtor (client) – As one of the three parts of the DACA, the debtor provides the security and receives the deposits into the deposit account.

Deposit account control agreements (DACAs) are too often misjudged by a deposit-taking institution that signs them. It is all too common for a custodial institution to lack appropriate controls, including the involvement of consultants, if any, to protect the interests of the custodian institution when signing and implementing a DACA. This is in stark contrast to lenders who typically hire consultants to thoroughly audit and process DACA, to ensure that the lender`s security interest in all deposit accounts is enhanced, and to transfer exposure to the deposit facility under the DACA.
