Promissory notes are a type of written agreement/contract between a lender and borrower. There are two specific types of notes; secured and unsecured. Secured notes are accompanied by collateral (pledged by the borrower). If a borrower defaults on a secured note, the lender has the right to take possession of the pledged collateral in order to satisfy the debt. If an unsecured note is defaulted on, the lender may file a judgement against the borrower in an attempt to satisfy the debt. However, since there is no backed collateral the lender may not necessarily regain the full balance of the loan. Unsecured notes are typically used with borrowers who have excellent credit histories or high income levels.
