How do I find out if a particular item, such as a machine, is used as collateral with another secured party?

On the UCC11 form, select checkbox 3b “Search Certificate and Copies.” Your processed search result with copies will include any collateral. Financing statements are indexed by debtor name, not collateral or secured party.
