Liens, Commencements & Trade Names

***Change to Filing Requirements [GSCCCA REVISED UCC FORMS Effective July 1, 2023] (PDF)***

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.
