In a factoring contract with recourse, the contract for the assignment of creditor’s rights is an indirect payment contract for the settlement of debts under the loan contract, rather than a pure assignment of creditor’s rights. Before the settlement of the factored debt, subject to the principle of good faith, the factor has the right and obligation to claim from the secondary debtor first, and, for the part the secondary debtor fails to pay off, the debtor shall assume supplementary liability. To the extent that the factor is in good faith and without any fault, the debtor and the secondary debtor shall not challenge the factor for the absence of the receivables and other defect.
