Confused About What Collateral Language to Use on Your UCC Financing Statement?

April 04, 2013 UCC

The collateral description of a UCC  Financing Statement is important, it is where the secured party details what items the debtor has offered as collateral to secure the loan. To effectively mitigate a creditor’s risk for loss and fend off challenges from other creditors, a UCC filing must adequately describe the collateral.

Figuring out how to describe the collateral on a UCC Financing Statement to best protect your interests can be confusing. According to the Uniform Commercial Code , the collateral description must reasonably identify the collateral. Unfortunately, that is a pretty subjective phrase and many creditors are confused about how to describe collateral reasonably in order to satisfy the requirements under The Code.
