Promissory Note

A promissory note is a negotiable instrument that contains an unconditional written promise, signed by the borrower, to repay the lender or its designated agent. The promissory note also defines the amount and specific terms of the loan between borrower (maker) and lender (payee/holder).
The promissory note is not recorded on its own. Instead, it is presented for recording along with its related deed of trust or mortgage.
A mortgage that includes a power of sale clause and a promissory note that includes stringent default terms can be beneficial to the lender
