Uniform Commercial Code
The Uniform Commercial Code Division is the central filing office for the perfection of personal property liens. These liens are perfected by filing a UCC-1 Financing Statement showing the name and address of the debtor and the secured party along with a description of the collateral. These financing statements are effective for five years and may be continued for an additional five years. Information on these filings, either by a listing or copies, is provided to any requesting party.
