  • What is a fixture?

    Generally, fixtures are goods that have become so related to a particular real property that an interest in them arises under real property law (UCC Article 9). Each state has its own guidelines for what’s considered a fixture, and, ultimately, only the courts can determine a fixture case-by-case.

  • How do I file a fixture filing?

    Fixture filings are generally filed at the county level in the county in which a mortgage would be recorded on the affected real property. You will need to file a UCC-1 financing statement form plus an addendum that you need to fill out on the fixture filing.
