Unsecured Debt

Unsecured Debt

NC Bankruptcy Lawyer in Charlotte North Carolina for Chapter 7 / Chapter 13

Unsecured debt is most simply described as a loan that has no collateral attached to it. 
 
Most credit cards, medical bills, and signature loans are unsecured.  In order to be secured by collateral, the owner of the collateral (typically the borrower but not necessarily the borrower) must sign documents agreeing that the property will serve to back up the loan if not paid.   
 
Mortgages, car notes, and purchases where the items can be taken back if not paid (furniture and applicances) are your most common secured loans.
