Missouri Secured Promissory Note Template

The Missouri Secured Promissory Note Template is a legal document entered into by two parties: a lender and borrower. Secured promissory notes are used to outline the principal sum, interest rates, installment amount/schedule, and other terms of a loan. The note is “secured” due to having the backing of the borrower’s pledged assets (i.e. collateral). In the event of default, the lender has the legal right to take possession of the collateral in order to recoup the amount that was loaned to the borrower.
