Alabama Secured Promissory Note Template

The Alabama secured promissory note is a document that serves as a written contract between two parties, a lender and borrower; whereas the lender will provide a monetary loan to the borrower while the borrower provides personal property as security, in the event they default on the loan. Should this be the case, the lender would then be within their legal rights to take possession of the property provided by the borrower, to retain or sell in order to retrieve the amount of the loan.

Otherwise, when the monetary loan is satisfied in accordance to the agreement, the lender would then be obligated to return the property and provide a written release of any further liability or obligation to the lender. This document will require the signature of two witnesses in order that it may be effective and legally enforceable.
