Arkansas Law Regarding UCC Farm Filings
Act 942, passed in the 87th Arkansas General Assembly Regular Session of 2009, changed the location for most farm filings from the county to the Secretary of State. Financing statements currently on file at a county will remain effective until they are terminated or they lapse.
The only EXCEPTION will be for farm-stored commodities financed by a loan through the Commodity Credit Corporation of the United States Department of Agriculture. All UCC filings, including continuations and terminations, for Commodity Credit Corporation loans will be filed in the Circuit Clerk's office in the county where the debtor is "located" until December 31, 2012.
Unless more changes are forthcoming it appears farm related UCC searches must be conducted at the County Circuit Clerk's office and the Secretary of State until at least December 31, 2017 in order to obtain a comprehensive search including all copies.
