New Mexico Secured Promissory Note Template

The New Mexico Secured Promissory Note Template provides a clear view of the terms of a loan. The document, entered into by a lender and borrower, is legally enforceable (as long as it is properly formatted/signed by all of the involved parties). Secured notes are “secure” due to the collateral that is provided by the borrower. The note must contain a description of the secured assets (and may require an additional form known as a “security agreement”).
