NC SOS

OPEN BY APPT. ONLY We know these last few months have been difficult for everyone and we appreciate your patience and understanding around keeping our customers, the public, and employees safe and healthy. We have completed some physical modifications to the lobby and are transitioning to in-person services by appointment only to allow for social distancing in our small public lobby. Due to the small space in the public lobby, only a limited number of appointments will be accepted each business day. The building will remain closed to the public who do not have an appointment.
For customers with an appointment, make sure to complete documents ahead of time and that a check or money order for the exact amount is ready. The Secretary of State’s office cannot provide legal advice related to your filings. Make sure you have consulted any legal resources required in advance. You will receive additional instructions when you make an appointment.

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.
