SEC OF STATE BUILDINGS CLOSING TO PUBLIC On March 10, Gov. Cooper declared a State of Emergency related to the Coronavirus. As of Friday, March 20 at 4 pm the downtown Raleigh and Atlantic Avenue locations of the Secretary of State’s office are closed to the public until further notice. Given the small size of the lobby area and the heavy walk-in traffic by the public, this decision was made for the health and safety of our customers and staff. Most of our services can be conducted online at SOSNC.GOV and over the phone. We urge customers to submit their documents to us online at SOSNC.GOV and continue calling us at 919-814-5400, or you can find specific email addresss on our website.

What We Do

The Uniform Commercial Code Section operates under Chapter 25, Article 9 of the North Carolina General Statutes to provide a method of giving notice of a security interest in personal property to interested third parties. The method adopted is a "notice" filing system. Record information in the UCC Section is open to the public, and can be searched for free over the Internet.

This Section provides an essential service to the business community, offering a repository of records of UCC and federal lien documents. It also has the character of a public "bulletin board" with regard to liens against personal property.

Lien information on any person or business may be obtained from the UCC Section upon request. Such information may be used to determine whether a lender would be interested in extending credit to the small business owner to, for example, provide capital for purchasing equipment or raw materials. The small business owner may, in turn, access the Section's records to determine whether to extend credit to customers by taking a security interest in the finished product to be sold.

UCC records can be researched for free from this site, or the UCC Section will perform a UCC Search by written request on a UCC-11 Information Request form for a $38 fee.
