The commercial transaction process starts with accessing as much reliable data about potential debtors as possible. AADS offers national search services for the below services to help your firm get an accurate picture of borrowers, ensure their collateral is secured, validate key data against public record databases, assess risk and achieve peace of mind.

State & County UCC Lien Searches

All American Document Services performs exhaustive Universal Commercial Code (UCC) searches, Revised Article 9 (RA9) compliant searches, and Lien Searches to ensure that collateral used to secure loans have no other lien filed against them. Our searches include, but are not limited to:

UCC Search

Experienced researchers on our team provide accurate records and deliver them faster than anyone else.

Judgment Liens/Other Liens

This search reports all of the judgment liens and any other lien on a given target name and/or property in the county recorders offices.

These are also known as Construction liens and they are valid for one year. It is prudent to know if they exist as a foreclosure could be filed within the year the lien is active.

We can obtain bankruptcy records quickly and provide them in the format you require.

Federal & State Civil Litigation Research

We search to make sure that the target/subject has no pending lawsuits, as well as to identify and report prior actions on record.

We search and verify filings every single day to ensure full diligence and provide instant digital alerts when changes are made.

Patriot Act / Ofac Search

Nearly any business, real estate, financial, or insurance-related transaction has the potential to violate the Patriot Act and/or OFAC Regulations. These laws are designed to prevent people from supporting or conducting business (knowingly or unknowingly) with a sanctioned individual or institution. Civil and criminal penalties for these violations can be severe and can be levied against individuals as well as institutions. The responsibility is on you to know who you are conducting business with and whether they are not on the OFAC SDN list. All American Document Services has extensive experience providing Patriot Act and OFAC Searches, which are both essential steps in the due diligence process.

Retrieval, Preparation, Filing & Recording

Lenders, banks, corporations, and legal professionals rely on certified public records to do business, yet many courthouses across the country are ill-equipped or untrained to provide them quickly and in good order. We recognized the market need and developed a network of trusted vendors and a platform that streamlines document delivery online.
