Hawaii Secured Promissory Note Template

The Hawaii Secured Promissory Note Template is available for download in both .PDF and Word format. The document may be used to draft a secured note. Secured notes are a type of written agreement entered into by a lender and a borrower. The form serves to outline the terms of the loan (interest rates, payment amount/schedule, principal sum, etc.). The note is “secured” because the borrower pledges assets as collateral. If the borrower defaults on the loan, the lender can take possession of the pledged assets. The instructions below may be used as a guide when drafting the note.
