Arizona Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The Arizona Unsecured promissory note is a legal document that establishes the various terms of a loan. Unsecured notes, as opposed to secured notes, do not have attached assets (meaning there is no collateral offered by the borrower). Lenders typically offer these types of loans to borrowers who are considered to be low risk, however interest rates on unsecured loans are typically higher than normal.

The note is enforceable only if it has been signed by two witnesses. If the document is not signed by both parties (lender/borrower), and does not have the minimum number of witnesses, then it is not legally valid.
