409.703 409.703 Security interest perfected before effective date.
409.703(1)(1) Continuing priority over lien creditor: perfection requirements satisfied. A security interest that is enforceable immediately before July 1, 2001, and would have priority over the rights of a person that becomes a lien creditor at that time is a perfected security interest under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10 if, on July 1, 2001, the applicable requirements for enforceability and perfection under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10 are satisfied without further action.
409.703(2) (2)Continuing priority over lien creditor: perfection requirements not satisfied. Except as otherwise provided in s. 409.705, if, immediately before July 1, 2001, a security interest is enforceable and would have priority over the rights of a person that becomes a lien creditor at that time, but the applicable requirements for enforceability or perfection under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10 are not satisfied as of July 1, 2001, the security interest:

An attached security interest becomes unperfected one year after July 1, 2001, unless the security interest becomes a perfected security interest under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10 before one year after July 1, 2001.
409.705(2) (2)Preeffective-date filing. The filing of a financing statement before July 1, 2001, is effective to perfect a security interest to the extent that the filing would satisfy the applicable requirements for perfection under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10.

However, except as otherwise provided in subs. (4) and (5) and s. 409.706, the financing statement ceases to be effective at the earlier of:
409.705(3)(a) (a) The time the financing statement would have ceased to be effective under the law of the jurisdiction in which it is filed; or

409.705(4) (4)Continuation statement. The filing of a continuation statement on or after July 1, 2001, does not continue the effectiveness of the financing statement filed before July 1, 2001. However, upon the timely filing of a continuation statement on or after July 1, 2001, and in accordance with the law of the jurisdiction governing perfection as provided in subch. III, the effectiveness of a financing statement filed in the same office in that jurisdiction before July 1, 2001, continues for the period provided by the law of that jurisdiction.
409.705(5) (5)Application of sub. (3) (b) to transmitting utility financing statement. Subsection (3) (b) applies to a financing statement that, before July 1, 2001, is filed against a transmitting utility and satisfies the applicable requirements for perfection under the law of the jurisdiction governing perfection as provided in s. 409.103, 1999 stats., only to the extent that subch. III provides that the law of a jurisdiction other than the jurisdiction in which the financing statement is filed governs perfection of a security interest in collateral covered by the financing statement.
409.705(6) (6)Application of subch. V. A financing statement that includes a financing statement filed before July 1, 2001, and a continuation statement filed on or after July 1, 2001, is effective only to the extent that it satisfies the requirements of subch. V for an initial financing statement.

409.706(1) (1) Initial financing statement in lieu of continuation statement. The filing of an initial financing statement in the office specified in s. 409.501 continues the effectiveness of a financing statement filed before July 1, 2001, if:

409.706(1)(b) (b) The preeffective-date financing statement was filed in an office in another state or another office in this state; and
409.706(1)(c) (c) The initial financing statement satisfies sub. (3).
409.706(2) (2)Period of continued effectiveness. The filing of an initial financing statement under sub. (1) continues the effectiveness of the preeffective-date financing statement:
409.706(2)(a) (a) If the initial financing statement is filed before July 1, 2001, for the period provided in s. 409.403, 1999 stats., with respect to a financing statement; and
409.706(2)(b) (b) If the initial financing statement is filed on or after July 1, 2001, for the period provided in s. 409.515 with respect to an initial financing statement.
409.706(3) (3)Requirements for initial financing statement under sub. (1). To be effective for purposes of sub. (1), an initial financing statement must:
409.706(3)(a) (a) Satisfy the requirements of subch. V for an initial financing statement;
409.706(3)(b) (b) Identify the preeffective-date financing statement by indicating the office in which the financing statement was filed and providing the dates of filing and file numbers, if any, of the financing statement and of the most recent continuation statement filed with respect to the financing statement; and

409.707(3)(b) (b) An amendment is filed in the office specified in s. 409.501 concurrently with, or after the filing in that office of, an initial financing statement that satisfies s. 409.706 (3); or
409.707(3)(c) (c) An initial financing statement that provides the information as amended and satisfies s. 409.706 (3) is filed in the office specified in s. 409.501.

III as the office in which to file a financing statement.

409.709 409.709 Priority.

For purposes of s. 409.322 (1), the priority of a security interest that becomes enforceable under s. 409.203 dates from July 1, 2001, if the security interest is perfected under 2001 Wisconsin Act 10 by the filing of a financing statement before July 1, 2001, which would not have been effective to perfect the security interest under ch. 409, 1999 stats. This subsection does not apply to conflicting security interests each of which is perfected by the filing of such a financing statement.
