Secured Party Search Requests


This search report will contain the same results as in the UCC Standard Report and is applied to the secured party of record, which includes assignees and assignors. The search request requires that the party type (individual or organization) be specified. In order to find the secured party names that have been entered in a variety of ways, multiple secured party searches may be necessary.  

 

First name: Report will include exact matches on the first name or of the first name initial that matches the first letter of the name entered.

Example:  If the first name of “Julie” is entered the results will include Julie and J.   

Middle name: Report will include exact matches of the middle name, and  initial only that matches the first letter of the name entered.

Example:  If the middle name of “Marshall” is entered the results will include “Marshall”, “M” as well as no middle name    If no middle name is entered, the results will return any middle initial or name for liens that match the first name and/or last name entered. Example: If the first name of “Scott” and last name of “Gerdes” is entered will include “Scott Gerdes”, “Scott M Gerdes” and “Scott Marshall Gerdes”  

Last Name (required): Report will include only exact matches on the last name.

Example:  If the last name entered is “Smith” all liens with the debtor last name of Smith will be returned (limited by first and/or middle name if entered).

Organization Name (required): Report will include only exact matches on the organization. (go here for details about normalization, equivalency and noise words)

Example:  If the secured name searched is “The Bank of Minnesota” it will return The Bank of Minnesota; Bank of Minnesota Example:  If the secured name searched is “The Bank of Minnesota” it will NOT return The Bk of Minnesota; The Bank of MN; the Bank of Minn; The Bk of MN.
