1 Promissory Note

A Promissory Note, often referred to as a Note, is a signed promise to pay a debt. The person making the promise (the borrower), makes an unconditional promise to pay the lender, or holder of the Note, a fixed sum of money over a fixed amount of time. In the event payment is not made, the lender has the ability to sue for non-payment, whereas the borrower has no right to counter sue. A party also cannot sue for punitive damages (damages above and beyond the amount specified in the Promissory Note) based upon the debt owed. Promissory Note is not a simple acknowledgement of debt; it is a legal promise to repay the debt. This Promissory Note is a promise to repay a specific sum, and has the option to include interest payments. This Note may also be secured by some item, such as a motor vehicle, piece of jewelry or other item of value.

6 Request for Credit Report

A credit report is a record of an individual's or company's past borrowing and repaying, including information about late payments and bankruptcy.

Because other reporting firms gather your credit profile from a subset of one or more of these three major agencies, it's always a good idea to get a report from each agency.

8 Debtor's Settlement Offer

There are times and circumstances during which creditors will accept reduced payment in full settlement of a debt. The savings resulting from these agreements can be substantial, and you can often negotiate an improvement in your credit report as well. The law of contracts binds you to the terms of your offer, so be certain that you can do what you promise. The creditor can respond in three ways. He can accept your terms, in which case you have a contract. He can vary the terms of your offer, in which case, you are still negotiating. Or he can reject your offer outright. If you are behind on your payments and suspect that your creditor may be open to a settlement offer, use this form to offer a settlement on terms that you can live with.

When a debtor desires to settle a debt with a creditor he or she may do so by initiating negotiations with a settlement offer letter. Use this letter to make an offer to a creditor to settle a debt and set forth parameters of the settlement.
