No, as with the last question, there is no magical way to file a UCC, or obscure Admiralty law, or theory that the Treasure system is unconstitutional, to get you out of your home loan.



Thanks for your reply. I don't have a home loan nor am I looking for a theory or magical way to do anything. I'm simply studying and learning both what is and what isn't. How do you discharge a debt or set-off a debt then, what's the 1.2.3? Why am I hearing stories of debts being discharged and/or setoff all over the place online for the last three years like an epidemic? I've heard either acceptances or setoff bonds are being used to balance accounts?


A promissory note on a house is a negotiable instrument. If it relates to a home loan then the bank files a security deed on the property or, in other states, a mortgage/deed of trust. These are not filed as UCC statements.

And its not the same as a federal reserve note or cash. The promissory note is secured by the real property.



Thanks for your reply. You've been very helpful.
