6 Mortgages cont. The promissory note (real estate lien note) is a written promise by the maker to pay a specified sum at a specified time to a person named in the agreement, the payee. This document is a contract between the lender and the borrower. Since this document is merely a contract, it is not typically recorded. © 2015 OnCourse Learning
