Actionable claim is a claim against an unsecured debt and not a secured one. This is the peculiar feature of an actionable claim. S.3 Interpretation clause- actionable claim means, a claim to any debt, other than a debt secured by mortgage of immovable property or by hypothecation or pledge of moveable property, or to any beneficial interest in movable property not in the possession, either actual or constructive, of the claimant, which the civil courts recognize as affording grounds for relief, whether such debt or beneficial interest be existent, accruing confidential or contingent.
