What information does PCS need in order to initiate a search?

Certification:

TAX LIEN and JUDGEMENT LIEN SEARCHES

Searching for Tax Liens and Judgment Liens can be a daunting task. These items are not governed by the same strict standards that Revised Article 9 provides pertaining to UCC filings. Depending on the particular state and debtor, you may need to search locally, at the state level, in alternatively located tax lien databases, or a combination of all of the above. Variances in the way debtor names are input and abbreviated can significantly effect whether these items will be discovered in a search. Having Precision Corporate Services, Inc. handle your searches is the best way to maximize your chances of finding the liens you are looking for and avoiding unpleasant post-closing surprises.

 

  • Our search reports are utilized by many high profile law firms, corporations and banks.
  • Our report format is the same regardless of jurisdiction, enabling you to spend more time focusing on business matters and less time worrying about jurisdictional reporting variances.
  • For jurisdictions in which several indices are being searched, our multiple index PCS Reports provide a single page synopsis so that you can find what you need quickly and easily.

Fixture Filings

Fixture Filings are financing statements covering goods that are or are to become "Fixtures". Fixtures are items that are affixed to real property such that an interest in them arises under real property law. (see 9-102(a) (40) and (41))   Such liens are generally found on record in the office that houses the real estate records for the location in which the real property is located.  Depending on the jurisdiction, such records may be searchable by party name or may require a property search.   Precision Corporate Services, Inc. can locate Fixture Filings upon request.
