    FAQ
      Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)
    Where should I file a UCC financing statement?
     
    Answer:

    The Uniform Commercial Code designates where to file based on the location of the debtor. The collateral location no longer determines where to file. Filings for organizations are made in the state where the organization is registered. Filings for individuals are made in the state of residence. Filing in the wrong office is not a rejection reason listed in the statute.

    Within the state of organization or residence, mortgages, fixtures, minerals and timber are filed with the county Register of Deeds. All other types of collateral, including transmitting utilities, should be filed with the State UCC Office.
