Dorit Straus, vice president and worldwide fine-art manager for Chubb, says she has encountered resistance from collectors when encouraging them to file UCC documentation. Straus says there are two main reasons for this. "The first is emotional; they don't want the dealer to think they don't trust them," Straus says. However, she points out: "This is a business deal. You are not lending to a friend."
The second concern is that filing a UCC on a particular artwork means the information is now part of the public domain. For obvious reasons, "a lot of art owners do not wish to let information about what they own out into the public," says Straus. She suggests collectors consult with their attorneys and says one way around this is the creation of a limited liability company as a way of remaining partially anonymous.
