The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) became effective in Kansas in 1966. The Uniform Commercial Code is a code developed for uniform filing on personal property throughout the USA. Like all “uniform” attempts, fees and other things are different, but the basic concepts of security regulations are more uniform.
The filing of a UCC financing statement is what perfects or secures the loan on consumer goods or personal property. UCC finance statements on personal property are now filed at the state level. UCC Fixture Filings which affect the land continue to be filed in the Register of Deeds Office.
