Uniform Commercial Code
The Uniform Commercial Code is the law governing various financial commercial transactions. A UCC essentially gives notice to the public that the secured party has an interest in the personal property of the debtor.
A UCC lien usually results when a secured party lends money to a debtor, and the debtor pledges collateral to the secured party or lender in exchange for the loan.
While a UCC is not a legal document and doesn’t need signatures, they still have serious ramifications. An improperly completed or filed UCC-1 will result in loss of your institutions perfected security interest.
