About the Mortgage Department

The Mortgage Department is responsible for issuing Mortgage, Non-Lien and, UCC Certificates pursuant to applicable Louisiana statutes.  As per statutes, all request for certificates must be in writing.  As the request is written, requests for certificates may also be received via facsimile or email at

For more information about the mortgage department, you can call us at (318) 965-2336.


Mortgage Certificates are issued by the department on a first come, first served basis.   You must provide us with the name(s) you want us to check and legal property description.  If a legal property description is not available, the information may be obtained by calling the Bossier Parish Assessor at (318) 965-2213.

A Mortgage Certificate is not a title opinion and makes no representation as to who might actually own the property described on the certificate. 

Non-Lien Certificates are also issued by the Mortgage Department.  As with mortgage certificates, the request must be in writing.  The request must include the name(s) you want us to check, the date the contract was signed, and a brief description of the work.  Unless otherwise requested, the Non-Lien Certificate will be issued when requested.

UCC Certificate requests must be in writing and on a Louisiana approved UCC-II form, one debtor name per request.  A Federal Tax I.D. number should be provided although it is not yet required by the statute.  The lack of a Federal Tax I.D. number will impact the results of your UCC Certificate.

Cancellations of all types must first be submitted to the Cancellation Clerk in the Mortgage Department before they will be accepted by the Recording Department.  This is to verify the information contained in the cancellation form is correct.  Cancellations in Bossier Parish must be in authentic form, I.E., executed before a Notary Public, signed by the affiant and two witnesses.  Also, with almost no exceptions, the original promissory note must be presented to cancel a mortgage.  All cancellation documents must have a request for cancellation form attached. UCC terminations must be prepared on a Louisiana approved form and must be sent directly to the UCC Department.
