Thanks for checking out our forum, and for asking your question! It sounds like you have a few options, but I want to say that we don’t give legal advice and you should always consult an attorney in your state, as each state’s rules differ. You certainly can get documentation showing your payment of that debt. In most cases that will satisfy the escrow company, but it must show the name of whomever the debt is owed to. So if the UCC lien is filed by company xyz, and that is who the escrow company thinks you owe, then your proof of payment must include them.
You can also get the UCC lien removed, if you have a few weeks. You can do this by either requesting the merchant lender to remove it once you’ve paid, or you can go down to the state’s secretary of state office and swear an oath that it has been paid. Then have the escrow company re-run their report, now showing no such lien on your business assets.
However, your situation seems to be more based on making sure you don’t pay an amount that the escrow company thinks you owe. This makes me lean towards the first option. I’m assuming some collection agency has made a claim that they’re owed something, which is what is holding up the escrow? If that’s the case then you’ll definitely need something rom the company that made a claim, stating that you’ve paid them in full.
I hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any more questions!
