The Financing Unit of the Register of Deeds Office files all Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) documents related to the encumbering of certain personal property that are to become fixtures attached to real estate property.  The State of Michigan Treasury files tax liens on personal property owned by an individual or business firm.  Termination (discharge) of the various filings are filed by the lienor after the debt has been paid and is satisfied.

We also make abstracts, providing copies if requested, of all the filings involving personal property and pertaining to an individual or business firm upon the request of a customer, usually a financial institution or law firm. The Fees & Forms page contains detail for documents files in the Register of Deeds office.

For additional UCC Financing information, call 248-858-0600.
