Secured property

Lenders use this term as a shorthand method of describing “property subject to a security interest, ” i.e., collateral. Factually, it is the lender who is secured, and the property itself is the security. The collateral real or personal property acting as security for a lender’s loan can be sold if the debtor does not otherwise pay the loan pursuant to the terms of the promissory note.
