What is a UCC filing?

A (UCC) Uniform Commercial Code filing is a practice adopted by all states to govern commercial transactions. The UCC filings returned from this site are usually liens between individuals and businesses (e.g., Mortgages, Equipment and vehicles)

When should I use a UCC search?

In many cases, debtors have liens associated with a commercial institution. This is great alternative for finding an individual. The individual's address is returned with any matching UCC filings. These addresses are frequently direct matches.

How do I search effectively?

  • Use only a last name, first name and state to get the best results
  • Enter additional information like address and/or city when too many results are returned
  • Only enter a middle initial as a last resort to narrow search results
  • This search can also be used with only a company name and state
