Q2. What is a certified search report? 

A2.  A certified search report is a list of all of the records that matched the search term that you entered. It includes the debtors and secured parties as well as any amendments.  A certificate is included that certifies that the report contains all of the records on file for that particular debtor name as of the current date.
