§ 74.7. Termination notice; filing officer.
(a) General rule. Whenever there is no outstanding secured obligation and no commitment to make advances, incur obligations or otherwise give value, the financing party shall on written demand by the grantor send the grantor a termination notice to the effect that it no longer claims a security interest under the applicable intangible transition property notice, which shall be identified by its file number. A termination notice signed by a person other than the financing party of record shall be accompanied by a separate written notice of assignment of the security interest signed by the financing party of record and complying with this chapter, including payment of the required fee. If the affected financing party fails to file a termination notice or send a termination notice within 10 days after proper demand therefor, the financing party shall be liable for the loss caused to the grantor by reason of the failure.
(b) Duties of filing officer. On presentation to the filing officer of a termination notice, the filing officer shall mark the date and time of filing on the termination notice. If the filing officer has received the termination notice in duplicate, the filing officer will return one copy of the termination notice to the financing party marked to show the date and time of filing thereof. The filing officer may remove the original, microfilm or other photographic record from the file no sooner than 1 year after receipt of the termination notice.
