Promissory Note


Asked on May 21, 2023

Key terms in promissory notes?

I am a small business owner who recently loaned money to a business associate. The loan was made via a Promissory Note, which I drafted myself. I am now looking to learn more about the key terms and conditions of the note, in order to ensure the safety of my investment. I am hoping to gain a better understanding of the legal implications of the document, and how to protect my interests.
