Only financing statements which cover fixtures, timber to be cut, and as-extracted oil, gas, and other minerals are filed with the register of deeds (in the county where the land is located). All other financing statements will be filed at the Secretary of State's office. To be perfected you should file all financing statements, except for fixture filings pertaining to real estate, in the Secretary of State’s office and not the Register of Deeds. If you send it with the correct filing fees to the Register of Deeds, it will be filed, no questions asked. New laws make it the responsibility of the secured party to be perfected or secured.
