Indiana Secured Transactions Under  Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code: Forms and Practice Manual

Prominent Indiana attorneys, Edward A. Keirn and Bambra K. Pitman, have drawn from their extensive experience to bring you this practical, easy-to-use book, containing a comprehensive collection of all the current rules of Revised Article 9, along with extensive commentaries on how they affect the forms and procedures used in Indiana today.

With the enactment of the 2010 Amendments to UCC Article 9, effective July 1, 2013, it is more important than ever to keep abreast of the rules. The new Amendments address matters that have arisen in practice following more than a decade of experience practicing under the 1998 version of UCC-9, modify the existing statute to respond to filing issues, and provide greater guidance as to the name of an individual debtor to be provided on a financing statement.

Recent Updates Include:

  • New rules for determining an individual debtor’s name under Section 4.4
  • New financing statement rejection rules for the Indiana Secretary of State and Indiana county recorders under Section 4.6
  • New Form 14-70 and guidelines for the former Correction Statement (now Information Statement) under Section 4.15
  • New rules for perfection of after-acquired collateral when the debtor changes jurisdiction or a new debtor located in a new jurisdiction becomes bound by the original debtor’s security agreement under Sections 8.2.1 and 8.2.3
  • New rules regarding termination of control of electronic documents and secured parties’ related duties under Section 11.4
  • New transition period rules under Chapter 13A
  • New and revised forms that address the amendments that went into effect on July 1, 2013
  • Synopses of new case law addressing leases, bailments, certificates of title, proceeds, priority, assignment and setoff, buyers in the ordinary course of business, commercial reasonableness, and repossession and mistake
