> Webinar: How to Properly Complete & File Financing Statements: Including UCC Article 9 Rule Change

Thursday, May 09, 2013
3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
4:30 PM


The last major revision to UCC Article 9 occurred over a decade ago. At long last, the Uniform Law Commission has recommended new changes to UCC Article 9 that become effective July 1, 2013. Most of the changes relate to properly completing and filing UCC financing statements, including a change in the required information listed on the financing statement. In addition, there are new procedures regarding determining the proper legal name of the debtor and the security interest in after-acquired property when the debtor moves to another state. This session will cover the Article 9 changes and thoroughly explain how to complete each section of the new UCC-1 financing statement together with the proper filing requirements.

Although it is anticipated that every state will adopt the new UCC changes by July 1, at press time, these states hadn’t: California, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont. Visit http://www.uniformlaws.org/Act.aspx?title=UCC Article 9 Amendments (2010) to check on the current adoption status.
