Intermediate-Balance Rule

Intermediate-Balance Rule

Definition

Provides a presumption that if proceeds are commingled with other funds in a bank account, the proceeds are identified as long as the balance in the account remains equal to or greater than the balance of the proceeds. As funds drop below the level of the proceeds, a creditor’s security interest drops proportionally, and the proceeds are not increased if new funds are deposited.
