57A-9-520 Refusal by filing office to accept record.
Refusal by filing office to accept record.
(a) A filing office shall refuse to accept
a record for filing for a reason set forth in § 57A-9-516(b) and may refuse to accept a record for
filing only for a reason set forth in § 57A-9-516(b).
(b) 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 § 57A-9-501(a)(2), in no event more than two business days after the filing office receives the record.
(c) A filed financing statement satisfying § 57A-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, § 57A-9-338 applies
to a filed financing statement providing information described in § 57A-9-516(b)(5) which is
incorrect at the time the financing statement is filed.
(d) 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.
