Hi,

Thank you for your question.

In order to perfect the security interest in the stock, the creditor must file a UCC-1. However, if the creditor does not file the UCC-1, it does not make the loan unsecured, it only makes the security interest unperfected. That means that if you went out and tried to use the stock as collateral on a separate loan or you become insolvent, it could result in a loss of the security interest by the creditor.

Please let me know if you need further information on this subject.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
