In September 2017, we blogged that the Law Commission published a report on Bills of Sale following an earlier consultation on the reform of Bills of Sale Acts.

The Law Commission has now published a report on its proposed Goods Mortgages Bill, together with a final version of the draft Bill. When finalised the draft Bill will replace the Bills of Sale Act 1878 and the Bills of Sale Act (1878) Amendments Act 1882.

The report presents the final version of the Bill, outlining its recommendations and explaining how they developed in response to consultations. The report notes that only minor changes have been made to the previous draft of the Bill published in September 2017.
