Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The unsecured promissory note template is a document that allows a lender to detail an amount of money that is given to someone else (the ‘borrower) with the intention of being reimbursed with interest (if any). Although, with an unsecured note, the lender is not guaranteed any asset(s) if in the chance the borrower does not pay-back the loan. In this case the unsecured note is nothing more than an “I Owe You” as it does not guarantee anything to the lender other a promise to pay.
