§ 11-9-520 - Acceptance and refusal to accept record
. Acceptance and refusal to accept record.
(a) Refusal to accept record. A filing office may refuse to accept a record for filing only for a reason set forth in subsection (b) of Code Section 11-9-516
(b) Communication concerning refusal. If a filing office refuses to accept a record for filing, it shall communicate to the person that presented the record the fact of and reason for the refusal and the date and time the record would have been filed had the filing office accepted it. The communication must be made at the time and in the manner prescribed by filing office rule but in no event more than two business days after the filing office receives the record.
(c) When filed financing statement effective. A filed financing statement satisfying subsections (a) and (b) of Code Section 11-9-502
is effective, even if the filing office refuses to accept it for filing under subsection (a) of this Code section. However, Code Section 11-9-338
applies to a filed financing statement providing information described in paragraph (5) of subsection (b) of Code Section 11-9-516
which is incorrect at the time the financing statement is filed.
(d) Separate application to multiple debtors. If a record communicated to a filing office provides information that relates to more than one debtor, this part applies as to each debtor separately.
