§

9-501. Filing office

(a) Except as

otherwise provided in subsection (b) of this section, if the local law of this

State governs perfection of a security interest or agricultural lien, the

office in which to file a financing statement to perfect the security interest

or agricultural lien is:

(1) the office

designated for the recording of a record of a mortgage on the related real

property, if:

(A) the

collateral is as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut; or

(B) the

financing statement is filed as a fixture filing and the collateral is goods

that are or are to become fixtures; or

(2) the Office

of the Secretary of State, in all other cases, including a case in which the

collateral is goods that are or are to become fixtures and the financing statement

is not filed as a fixture filing.

(b) The office

in which to file a financing statement to perfect a security interest in

collateral, including fixtures, of a transmitting utility is the Office of the

Secretary of State. The financing statement also constitutes a fixture filing

as to the collateral indicated in the financing statement which is or is to

become fixtures. (Added 1999, No. 106 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. July 1, 2001.)
