Liens, Commencements & Trade Names
Liens filed in the General Execution Dockets are claims placed against an individual to secure the payment of a debt or the satisfaction of an obligation such as, Hospital Liens, Federal and State tax liens, Lis Pendens and Preliminary Notice of Lien Rights, and Materialman’s Liens.
Lien & Conveyance Format
As of July 1, 2012, a bill was passed stipulating the format to be used when filing conveyances in Superior Court. Pursuant to [O.C.G.A. §15-6-61(a)(10)], all liens or conveyances must have a 3” margin at the top of the first page to allow space for the Clerk’s notation.
All liens filed in Camden County are available onsite in the public records vault. In addition, lien records dating from 2002 forward are available at the Georgia Superior Court Clerks' Cooperative Authority Search Portal.
Uniform Commercial Code
Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings are liens placed on personal property used as collateral, such as boats, electronics, furniture, and inventory for a business.
The Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority has adopted revised UCC forms that became effective July 1, 2013. The new forms have a revision date of on or after April 20, 2011. Beginning August 1, 2013, all other forms will be rejected. UCC forms, filing checklists, rules and information can be found on the Georgia Superior Court Clerks' Cooperative Authority’s Website.
Fieri Facias (FiFa), also know as an Execution, is a Writ issued following the entering of a properly signed judgment from the appropriate court, Tax Commissioner, or Revenue Commissioner for the purpose of authorizing the Sheriff to proceed with levy on real and/or personal property of the defendant against whom the judgment was rendered.
