Often abbreviated as "UCC-1", these notices are typically printed in local newspapers, in an attempt to alert the masses of the creditors' intentions.
UCC-1s are required for all business loans under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and establish a relative priority over which specific assets may be seized, and in what order, while solidifying the collection pecking order in cases where there are multiple lenders to the same debtor.
A UCC-Uniform Commercial Code-1 statement is a legal notice filed by creditors in an effort to publicly declare their right to seize assets of debtors who default on loans.
UCC-1 notices are typically printed in local newspapers, in an effort to publicly express a lender's intent to seize collateralized assets.
These forms are mainly used to smooth out collection processes, often by helping lenders secure court orders authorizing them to seize assets from delinquent borrowers.
These forms must be filed with agencies located in the state where the borrower's business is incorporated.
There are two types of UCC-1 statements: blanket liens and liens attached to specific collateral.
