    Answered . No, as with the last question, there is no magical way to file a UCC, or obscure Admiralty law, or theory that the Treasure system is unconstitutional, to get you out of your home loan.

    Answered . A promissory note on a house is a negotiable instrument. If it relates to a home loan then the bank files a security deed on the property or, in other states, a mortgage/deed of trust. These are not filed as UCC statements.

    And its not the same as a federal reserve note or cash. The promissory note is secured by the real property.
