SECTION 8-601
Savings Clause; Effect on Prior Perfected Security Interest
Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) CHAPTER 38, ARTICLE 8, PART 6
Section 8--601. Savings Clause; Effect on Prior Perfected Security

Interest.

(a) As used in this Part, the term "this Act" means that chapter of
the laws of 1997 which repealed former Article 8 of this code, added
this article to this code, and made conforming amendments to provisions
of other articles of this code.

(b) This Act does not affect an action or proceeding commenced before
this Act takes effect. An oral contract or a modification of contract
entered into before the date this Act takes effect does not become
enforceable by reason of operation of Section 8--113.

(c) If a security interest in a security is perfected at the date this
Act takes effect, and the action by which the security interest was
perfected would suffice to perfect a security interest under this Act,
no further action is required to continue perfection. If a security
interest in a security is perfected at the date this Act takes effect
but the action by which the security interest was perfected would not
suffice to perfect a security interest under this Act, the security
interest remains perfected for a period of 12 months after the effective
date of this Act and continues perfected thereafter if appropriate
action to perfect under this Act is taken within that period. If a
security interest is perfected at the date this Act takes effect and the
security interest can be perfected by filing under this Act, a financing
statement signed by the secured party instead of by the debtor may be
filed within that period to continue perfection or thereafter to
perfect.
