Transition to new U.C.C. — General rule.

Transactions validly entered into after the effective date of the old U.C.C. and before February 1, 1982, and which were subject to the provisions of the old U.C.C. and which would be subject to this act as amended if they had been entered into after February 1, 1982, and the rights, duties and interests flowing from such transactions remain valid after the latter date and may be terminated, completed, consummated or enforced as required or permitted by the new U.C.C. Security interests arising out of such transactions which are perfected as of February 1, 1982, shall remain perfected until they lapse as provided in the new U.C.C., and may be continued as permitted by the new U.C.C., except as stated in Section 7-11-105.

A security interest for the perfection of which filing or the taking of possession was required under the old U.C.C. and which attached prior to February 1, 1982, but was not perfected shall be deemed perfected on February 1, 1982, if the new U.C.C. permits perfection without filing or authorizes filing in the office or offices where a prior ineffective filing was made.



(Acts 1981, No. 81-312, p. 399.)Section 7-11-105

(1) A financing statement or continuation statement filed prior to February 1, 1982, which shall not have lapsed prior to February 1, 1982, shall remain effective for the period provided in the old U.C.C., but not less than five years after the filing.

(2) With respect to any collateral acquired by the debtor subsequent to February 1, 1982, any effective financing statement or continuation statement described in this section shall apply only if the filing or filings are in the office or offices that would be appropriate to perfect the security interests in the new collateral under the new U.C.C.

(3) The effectiveness of any financing statement or continuation statement filed prior to February 1, 1982, may be continued by a continuation statement as permitted by the new U.C.C., except that if the new U.C.C. requires a filing in an office where there was no previous financing statement, a new financing statement conforming to Section 7-11-106 shall be filed in that office.

(4) If the record of a mortgage of real estate would have been effective as a fixture filing of goods described therein if the new U.C.C. had been in effect on the date of recording the mortgage, the mortgage shall be deemed effective as a fixture filing as to such goods under subsection (b) of Section 7-9A-502 of the new U.C.C. on February 1, 1982.

Section 7-11-106
Required refilings.

(1) If a security interest is perfected or has priority on February 1, 1982, as to all persons or as to certain persons without any filing or recording, and if the filing of a financing statement would be required for the perfection or priority of the security interest against those persons under the new U.C.C., the perfection and priority rights of the security interest continue until three years after February 1, 1982. The perfection will then lapse unless a financing statement is filed as provided in subsection (2) or unless the security interest is perfected otherwise than by filing.

(2) A financing statement may be filed within six months before the perfection of a security interest would otherwise lapse. Any such financing statement may be signed by either the debtor or the secured party. It must identify the security agreement, statement or notice (however denominated in any statute or other law repealed or modified by this act), state the office where and the date when the last filing, refiling or recording, if any, was made with respect thereto, and the filing number, if any, or book and page, if any, of recording and further state that the security agreement, statement or notice, however denominated, in another filing office under the Uniform Commercial Code or under any statute or other law repealed or modified by this act is still effective. Section 7-9A-501 and Section 7-9A-301 determine the proper place to file such a financing statement. Except as specified in this subsection, the provisions of Section 7-9A-515 for continuation statements apply to such a financing statement.
