Premium Feature

Liens are available as a premium feature. Contact Sales to inquire more about access.

Liens can be ordered on a Business, which will return UCC1 filing information for all active liens currently associated with that Business and documents pertaining to that filing, when available. Doing so can speed up due diligence workflows for underwriting and credit teams.
