Providing a business loan to relative and need to file a lien against business assets.
Saint Petersburg, FL |
Need an attorney or paralegal to file the lien. I have a State of Florida UCC Financial Stmt Form completed, but need to confirm this is the appropriate form. Would like the cost for providing this service.
Anyone can file a UCC lien,including yourself. You can use a FL attorney to review the document to see if it is in proper form. The cost would probably be for 1-2 hours work including the filing fee. You can use the avvo directory to find a business lawyer in FL.
