Best Answer

The creditor (holder of the note) would need to file a lawsuit in the court of jurisdiction where the debtor(borrower) resides. If the creditor prevails in the suit a judgment will be entered against the borrower. The creditor can then execute the judgment in accordance with the laws of the debtor's state.

Can the holder of a promissory note place a lien on a property?

A promissory note is an unsecured note. It doesn't create any lien on a person's property. Generally, if the borrower defaults on the note the creditor must sue and obtain a judgment within the statute of limitations for the promissory note. If successful in court, the creditor can request a judgment lien that can be recorded in the land records against the debtor's real property. Their property cannot be sold or mortgaged until the debt is paid. State laws vary so you need to check the laws in your state.
