Kentucky Secured Promissory Note Template

The Kentucky Secured Promissory Note Template is a written agreement that establishes the various terms of a loan. The document is entered into by two parties – a lender and borrower. In a secured note, the lender provides the borrower with a monetary loan (principal sum) in exchange for the borrower’s collateral. If the borrower ends up defaulting on the loan, the lender has the legal right to take possession of the borrower’s pledged assets (or file a civil suit against them) in order to regain the loaned money.
