Colorado Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The Colorado Unsecured Promissory Note Template is available for download in .PDF or Word format. Unsecured promissory notes differ from secured notes in that they do not have the backing of the borrower’s collateral. Therefore if the borrower defaults, the lender will need to file a judgement against the borrower in order to satisfy the unpaid balance. If the borrower does not have the means to repay the loan, the lender will take a loss. Unsecured notes/loans are typically reserved for borrowers who have high credit ratings (or are otherwise deemed “low risk”).
