Thank you for the info on the UCC1.....as the seller filed the UCC-1, is it the sellers responsibility to file the UCC3 release? And I didn't see an answer to part 2 of my question; 2) should I receive any documentation from the seller showing that the loan has been satisfied (i.e., the original promissory note stamped and dated as "loan satisfied" ) and if so, what type of documentation should the seller be furnishing me?
The party who files a lien would have an obligation to provide the release. Also, when payment of a loan is complete some statement, letter or other document is typically provided to the debtor to show the debt is paid. If it is not provided, a debtor will normally request such documentation.
Thank you very much
