Section 12A:9-520 - Acceptance and refusal to accept record.

12A:9-520 Acceptance and refusal to accept record.

12A:9-520. Acceptance and refusal to accept record.

(a) Mandatory refusal to accept record. A filing office shall refuse to accept a record for filing for a reason set forth in 12A:9-516(b) and may refuse to accept a record for filing only for a reason set forth in 12A:9-516(b).

(b) Communication concerning refusal. If a filing office refuses to accept a record for filing, it shall communicate to the person that presented the record the fact of and reason for the refusal and the date and time the record would have been filed had the filing office accepted it. The communication must be made at the time and in the manner prescribed by filing-office rule but, in the case of a filing office described in 12A:9-501(a)(2), in no event more than two business days after the filing office receives the record.

(c) When filed financing statement effective. A filed financing statement satisfying 12A:9-502(a) and (b) is effective, even if the filing office is required to refuse to accept it for filing under subsection (a). However, 12A:9-338 applies to a filed financing statement providing information described in 12A:9-516(b)(5) which is incorrect at the time the financing statement is filed.

(d) Separate application to multiple debtors. If a record communicated to a filing office provides information that relates to more than one debtor, this part applies as to each debtor separately.

(e) The provisions of 12A:9-516(b)(8)(A) through (E) do not apply to a financing statement filed by a registered organization or a representative of a registered organization. If a registered organization that is attempting to file a financing statement is organized under the law of a governmental unit other than this State and the filing office reasonably believes the record is submitted to harass, defraud, or for any other unlawful purpose, the filing office may require the registered organization or its representative to provide verification from the jurisdiction under whose law the institution is organized. As used in this subsection, "registered organization" means that term as defined in 12A:9-102.
