North Carolina Unsecured Promissory Note Template

TheĀ North Carolina Unsecured Promissory Note Template is a legal form that establishes the various terms of a loan agreement. The document, entered into by a lender and borrower, is legally enforceable once it has been signed the involved parties. Unsecured promissory notes are not guaranteed by the backing of a borrower’s pledged assets (i.e. collateral). This is the primary difference between unsecured and secured notes. The instructions provided below can be used as a reference when drafting your unsecured promissory note.
