Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (a) Sufficiency of financing statement. Subject to subsection (b), a financing statement is sufficient only if it:

        (2) provides the name of the secured party or a
representative of the secured party; and
        (3) indicates the collateral covered by the financing
    (b) Real-property-related financing statements. Except as otherwise provided in Section 9-501(b), to be sufficient, a financing statement that covers as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut, or which is filed as a fixture filing and covers goods that are or are to become fixtures, must satisfy subsection (a) and also:
        (1) indicate that it covers this type of collateral;
        (2) indicate that it is to be filed in the real
property records;
        (3) provide a description of the real property to
which the collateral is related sufficient to give constructive notice of a mortgage under the law of this State if the description were contained in a record of the mortgage of the real property; and
        (4) if the debtor does not have an interest of record
in the real property, provide the name of a record owner.
    (c) Record of mortgage as financing statement. A record of a mortgage is effective, from the date of recording, as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing or as a financing statement covering as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut only if:
        (1) the record indicates the goods or accounts that
it covers;
        (2) the goods are or are to become fixtures related
to the real property described in the record or the collateral is related to the real property described in the record and is as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut;
        (3) the record satisfies the requirements for a
financing statement in this Section, but:
            (A) the record need not indicate that it is to be
filed in the real property records; and
            (B) the record sufficiently provides the name of
a debtor who is an individual if it provides the individual name of the debtor or the surname and first personal name of the debtor, even if the debtor is an individual to whom Section 9-503(a)(4) applies; and
        (4) the record is recorded.
    (d) Filing before security agreement or attachment. A financing statement may be filed before a security agreement is made or a security interest otherwise attaches.
