This is common law/contract law. This would only be required if there is a contract that provides for this type of search. Who is requesting this?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Coop initiated holdover and now it's discovered they never served secured parties which is written in lease as a prerequisite to filing it's petition and notice of petition. They're argument was that they did not have record on file of coopera rive of the existence of the secured party. My understanding is that the case must be dismissed, inter alia, for failure to comply with terms of the lease in terminating it.
My further understanding is that the UCC exists to make known to the world the existence of a secured party, and by running a UCC search you should be able to secure knowledge of the existence of a secured party.
