At Parasec, we’ve spent years educating and training our team on the intricacies of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and Revised Article 9, a section of the UCC that specifically addresses the legal basis for and the means of handling secured transactions for property other than real property. If you need assistance preparing or filing a UCC or performing a UCC, tax lien or judgement search, look no further! Our experienced team members prepare and file UCCs and perform UCC searches on a daily basis for customers across the United States.

Our UCC specialists pride themselves on being friendly, reliable and precise. On knowing what could cause a UCC filing to be rejected. On always striving to ensure each filing is in compliance with the changes to statutory laws. On knowing what types of searches your particular project might require. Our team knows when something doesn’t look right and will inform you right away. Their ultimate goal is to make sure your UCC filings and searches are accurate and timely.

Additionally, our nationwide network of trusted UCC professionals provides on-the-ground assistance and has extensive knowledge of jurisdictional nuances—maximizing accuracy, minimizing rejections and, ultimately, saving you time and money.

UCC Search Services

Our team understands the importance of comprehensive and accurate search results when it comes to protecting your security interests and making informed lending decisions. Missed or incorrect searches can prove detrimental to your project. When doing your due diligence is of upmost importance, turn to our experts for all your UCC, tax lien and judgement search needs.

  • UCC Searches: Did you know that something as insignificant as spacing or punctuation can affect search results and skew lending decisions? You could either learn the search logic used in all 50 states (they vary) or let the Parasec team work for you. Parasec offers county and state-level UCC searches in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia.
  • Third Party UCC Searches: These searches generally provide a broader search than those performed by state offices. Utilization of both a state search and a third-party search gives you the best chance to ensure that all possible existing liens are located and identified.
  • Tax Lien and Judgment Searches: Parasec offers state, county and federal level tax lien and judgment searches.
  • Search-to-Reflect (Post Search): You filed your document, but did you ensure the state indexed it correctly? Don’t stop your due diligence process early, verify that your filing made it onto the index correctly. It is an inexpensive way to avoid costly litigation in the future. In addition, a search-to-reflect “closes the gap” confirming no competing liens were created during your lending cycle.
