As of July 1, 2001, under Revised Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, the Secretary of State's Office serves as the central filing office for public notices of secured transactions. These public notices, called financing statements, indicate a commercial agreement between a debtor and a secured party.
Financing statements are filed by banks, mortgage companies, and other lending institutions against secured collateral. Searches of financing statements provide information on secured collateral. When a debtor pledges collateral on a loan, UCC search results tell lenders if others have filed a claim against the same collateral.
To conduct an online search of financing statements, or to file a financing statement online, please click here. This online option allows the user to obtain search results, file financing statements, and/or receive documents - including certified documents - quickly and efficiently.
For additional information on Uniform Commercial Code or UCC filings, please see UCC Frequently Asked Questions.
