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

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

Prominent Michigan attorneys, Thomas E. Coughlin and Jane Derse Quasarano, 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 Michigan 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 Form (14-87) – Form Assignment of Loan and Loan Documents
  • New Form (14-88) – Notice of Foreclosure Sale to the Internal Revenue Service
  • Updated case law throughout
