Kent, WA asked in Contracts and Real Estate Law for Washington

Q: If a "Promissory Note" is signed by the Buyer, not the seller; is it still valid? Amended signed by both?

The Original was also lost by the Seller, is the contract still enforceable, if we're having a dispute?

The original was signed by Buyer only (Promissory Note, not Note); and the Amendment to the Promissory Note was signed by both the Buyer and Seller.

Enforceable? Any rules to the matter? Case law?

Thank you

A: The buyer is the one that has to sign as the notemaker. The amendment is probably an agreed modification between the maker and the holder. It should be enforceable unless you have busted the SOL.
