What do I need to know about UCC Search Logic?

UCC Search Logic has specific rules for its internal logic. Understanding how it works will help ensure correct search results. For example, certain business endings are considered “noise” words and are eliminated for search purposes. Debtor names are searched exactly as submitted, even if spelled incorrectly. “All” on the UCC11 form includes all lapsed and terminated filings for one year after the filing lapse date.
