mortgage note -- a written promise to repay a specified sum of money plus interest at a specified rate. While the mortgage itself pledges the title to real property as security for a loan, the mortgage note states the amount of debt and the rate of interest, and makes the borrower who sign's the note personally responsible for repayment.
