New Hampshire Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The New Hampshire Unsecured Promissory Note Template is designed for drafting an unsecured note for use in the State of New Hampshire. Unsecured notes, in direct contrast to secured notes, do not require that the borrower pledge collateral in exchange for receiving a loan. In the event of default, the lender’s only recourse with an unsecured note is to file a civil suit against the borrower. For this reason, lenders typically only enter into an unsecured note with borrowers who have stellar credit.
