Financing statements are filed in the Public Service Division of the Fairfax Circuit Court. Only fixture filings involving real estate are filed with the Court; therefore, all financing statements must provide a description of the real estate to which it relates. As of July 1, 2000, financing statements that do not involve real estate are filed with the State Corporation Commission.
Financing statements are accepted in person and through the mail. The cost to file a financing statement is $20.00. Cash, business checks, certified checks or money orders are accepted. Please make checks payable to the Clerk of the Court. Visa and MasterCard are also accepted (with a 4% processing fee) if filing in person. Please do not send cash through the mail. The Clerk's Office is not responsible for the loss of any cash payment by mail. Please include your telephone number on your check or money order.
