UCC Liens

UCC Liens Attorney in New York

Assisting Business Owners with All Aspects of UCC Liens Filings

A UCC liens filing, or a UCC filing, allows small business owners to obtain loans in exchange for having a lien placed by the lender on equipment and/or business assets. Under the Uniform Commercial Code—where the “UCC” in “UCC liens filing” comes from—UCC filing is a fairly uniform practice from state to state. In any case, if you are a small business owner who has received notice from a creditor of the creditor’s interest or right to property under a UCC-1 lien, the aforementioned property/assets could be seized to pay off your debts in the event that you file for bankruptcy or default on your loan.

At Jacovetti Law, P.C., we assist clients with a variety of issues related to UCC liens filings. Our firm exclusively represents business owners in UCC filing matters; we are committed to protecting the interests of small business owners in the state of New York and beyond.

What Assets Can a Lender Place a UCC Filing On?

These typically include:

  • Real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Inventory
  • Commercial operating equipment
  • Office equipment
  • Receivables
  • Investment securities
  • Promissory notes
  • Letters of credit

While this represents a general overview of the types of properties and assets a lender may place a UCC filing on, there will be variations from state to state.

Issues with UCC Lien Filings

Many business owners do not realize that they should continue to keep track of any UCC filings their lenders may have placed on business properties/assets, whether or not they are current. This is due to the fact that, even when a loan has been paid in full, the lender may not automatically end the UCC lien filing. This can, in turn, lead to problems when the business owner is attempting to secure additional loans or make arrangements with other lenders. Ultimately, this could affect your ability to secure much-needed small business financial funding.
