Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Just a few minutes while I take a look at the document.
That portion about being accelerated only refers to the defendant being forced to pay the amounts sooner than stated.
However, later under that Clause 3 Plaintiffs' Righto to Payments it does state that:
"nor shall the Plaintiffs have the power to sell or mortgage or encumber same, or any part thereof, nor anticipate the same, or any part thereof, by assignment or otherwise."
So I would opine that legally you couldn't have done the initial assignment since it is prohibited here..
But if you were to sue the previous company to void the deal, you would have to pay back anything that you received and they could argue that the statute of limitations may have run if this was done more than 4 years ago...
