What is a Demand Promissory Note?

A demand promissory note is a legally binding document between a borrower and a lender. With this agreement, the borrower promises to repay a debt at any time that is "demanded" by the lender. Once a lender has demanded repayment, the borrower must repay the debt or loan immediately.

It is the bank or lender who issues a demand promissory note. A demand promissory note is different from a standard promissory note because the borrower is not on a specific timeline for repayment. Instead, the borrower waits to repay the debt or loan until the lender demands repayment.

Common Sections in Demand Promissory Notes

Below is a list of common sections included in Demand Promissory Notes. These sections are linked to the below sample agreement for you to explore.

(o) Any change in the financial condition or business operation of any Obligor which causes Bank reasonably to believe that the performance of any of the obligations under this or any other agreement with Bank is impaired or doubtful. Borrower understands and agrees that any reference herein to any Default is not intended in any way to diminish, alter, impair, limit or eliminate the ability of Bank to demand payment in full at any time of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note. Borrower agrees that the election by Bank of any right or remedy provided to it upon the occurrence of any Default shall be conclusively presumed to be done in good faith by Bank notwithstanding any prior course of dealing or otherwise, including without limitation the acceptance by Bank of any partial payments on the indebtedness evidenced by this Note or other Loan Documents.

5. REMEDIES OF BANK. Upon either (a) the occurrence of a Default, or (b) demand by Bank, Bank may at any time thereafter at Bank’s option without demand or notice to any Obligor accelerate the maturity of any or all Obligations; whereupon such accelerated Obligations shall be immediately due and payable; provided, however, if the Default is based upon a bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding commenced by or against any Obligor, all Obligations shall automatically and immediately be due and payable, and Bank may also and without demand or notice as to any Obligor exercise its right of set off and any other rights or remedies granted in any of the Loan Documents or under applicable law against any Obligor, all of which remedies shall be cumulative. No delay or failure by Bank in exercising any of its rights or remedies hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy hereunder preclude any other or future exercise of any other right or remedy. Bank shall not be required to marshal any Collateral or guaranty or to resort to same in any particular order. Following maturity (whether by acceleration, upon demand or otherwise) of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note or after the entry of judgment, interest under this Note shall be payable upon demand and shall accrue on the principal balance due hereunder (and without limitation on any portion of the Obligations that may be paid in any plan of reorganization) at a rate 3% above the rate stated above. Absent the written agreement of Bank to the contrary, the acceptance by Bank of partial payments after the maturity of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note shall not be deemed a waiver by Bank of its right to be paid immediately all sums due hereunder in full. Borrower shall pay to Bank upon demand all costs of suit and other collection expenses, including without limitation all title search, title insurance, and appraisal costs, and all attorneys’ fees and other costs incurred by Bank, whether before or after the entry of a judgment, as a result of any negotiations or proceeding, whether in bankruptcy or otherwise, involving any Obligor or any Collateral. Bank may also refuse to make any further advances in regard to any Obligation and may terminate any commitment to make an advance under any Obligation.

6. MISCELLANEOUS. Each of the provisions hereof shall apply to this Note, to any extensions or modifications hereof and to the indebtedness evidenced hereby, except as otherwise expressly stated herein or in a separate writing signed by Bank and Borrower. Borrower hereby waives presentment for payment, demand, protest, notice of protest and dishonor and all other notices or demands in connection with the delivery, acceptance, performance, default or enforcement of this Note. The liability of Borrower hereunder shall be unconditional without regard to the liability of any other party and shall not be in any manner released or otherwise affected by (a) any indulgence, extension of time, compromise, renewal, release, satisfaction, waiver or modification granted or consented to by Bank involving any Obligor or Collateral or (b) the failure of any Obligor to sign any document evidencing any Obligation or the failure of Bank to perfect any security interest or lien in any Collateral. Bank shall not by any act or omission or under any circumstances be deemed to have waived any of its rights other than any rights waived by Bank in writing. Any reference herein to Borrower shall be deemed to refer to and be applicable to each signer separately as well as all of them jointly. Bank is hereby authorized, without further notice, to obtain the signature of additional co-makers and to date this Note as of the date on which the loan is made. The undersigned, if more than one, are jointly and severally liable. This Note has been delivered to and accepted by Bank in,

All of the terms and provisions hereof inure to and are binding upon the heirs, executors, administrators, successors, representatives, receivers, trustees and assigns of the parties. The invalidity or unenforceability of any portion hereof shall not affect the remaining portions hereof, and in the case of such invalidity, this Note shall be construed as if such portion had not been inserted. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms of this Note and the terms of any other Loan Document evidencing or securing the indebtedness owed hereunder, the terms of this Note shall prevail. To the extent permitted by law, this Note may not be prepaid except as agreed to in writing by Bank. To the extent that this Note represents a replacement, substitution, renewal or refinancing of a preexisting indebtedness evidenced by a note or other instrument, such preexisting indebtedness shall not be deemed to have been extinguished hereby.

For purposes of this section, account shall be understood to include loan accounts.

7. VENUE, AND EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION. Borrower hereby consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in any legal proceeding involving, directly or indirectly, any matter arising out of or related to this Note, or any relationship evidenced hereby. Borrower submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such Court and waives any objection which Borrower may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction or improper venue and consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court. Borrower waives personal service of the summons, complaint and any other process issued in any such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaint, and any other process may be made by mailing a copy thereof, by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to Borrower. Nothing in this Note shall be deemed or operate to affect the rights of Bank to serve legal process or to bring any action permitted by law against any Obligor or involving any Collateral in the appropriate court of any other appropriate jurisdiction or forum.

8. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL AND OTHER DAMAGES. The Borrower irrevocably waives, and Bank by its acceptance hereof thereby waives, any right or claim to a trial by jury in any legal proceeding involving, directly or indirectly, any matter (whether sounding in tort, contract, or otherwise) in any way arising out of or related to this Note or any other Loan Document. The Borrower represents and warrants that no representative or agent of the Bank has represented, expressly or otherwise, that the Bank will not, in the event of litigation, seek to enforce this jury trial waiver. The Borrower further waives any right it may have to claim or recover, in any such suit, action or proceeding, any special, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages or any damages other than, or in addition to, actual damages. This provision is a material inducement for Bank to provide the financial accommodations evidenced hereby.

9. CONFESSION OF JUDGMENT. Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and empowers the prothonotary or clerk or any attorney of any court of record to waive the issuance and service of process and to appear for and confess judgment therein against Borrower and in favor of Bank or any subsequent holder hereof: (a) at any time, whether or not the indebtedness evidenced hereby has matured (by acceleration or otherwise), for the full amount of all Obligations due or that may become due hereunder, including but not limited to late charges and interest accrued at the rate provided herein; and (b) upon the occurrence of a Default hereunder, in an appropriate action of replevin to obtain possession of the Collateral, including all books and records pertaining to the Collateral.

Although the Borrower agrees that the confession may include the amounts of the attorneys’ commission specified in the preceding sentence, Borrower reserves the right only to contest the collection by Bank of any unreasonable attorneys’ fees. The authority and power to appear for and confess judgment against Borrower shall not be exhausted by the initial exercise thereof and the same may be exercised from time to time, as often as Bank shall deem necessary and desirable, and a copy of this Note shall be sufficient warrant. Bank may, in its sole discretion, exercise the authority contained herein against one or more Borrowers at one and the same time or at different times. Such confession shall be with or without declaration or complaint filed, with release of errors, without stay of execution, and Borrower waives the right of inquisition on any real estate levied upon pursuant to the provisions hereof, and does hereby voluntarily condemn same and authorizes the prothonotary to enter upon the writ of execution a voluntary condemnation, and further agrees that the real estate may be sold on a writ of execution with a waiver and release of all relief from all appraisement, stay or exemption laws or rules of court, now in force or hereafter enacted or adopted.

My clients know me as more than just an attorney. First and foremost, my background is much broader than that. Prior to attending the Valparaiso University School of Law, I earned a Master of Business Administration and ran a small business as a certified public accountant. Thanks to this experience, I possess unique insight which in turn allows me to better assist my clients with a wide range of business and tax matters today. In total, I have over 20 years of experience in financial management, tax law, and business consulting, and I’m proud to say that I’m utilizing the knowledge I’ve gained to assist the community of Round Rock in a variety of ways. In my current practice, I provide counsel to small to medium-sized businesses, nonprofit organizations, and everyday individuals. Though my primary areas of practice are estate planning, elder law, business consulting, and tax planning, I pride myself on assisting my clients in a comprehensive manner. Whenever I take on a new client, I make an effort to get to know them on a personal level. This, of course, begins with listening. It is important that I fully understand their vision so I can help them successfully translate it into a concrete plan of action that meets their goals and expectations. I appreciate the individual attributes of each client and know firsthand that thoughtful, creative, and customized planning can maximize both financial security and personal happiness. During my time as a certified public accountant, I cultivated an invaluable skill set. After all, while my legal education has given me a deep understanding of tax law, I would not be the tax attorney I am today without my background in accounting. Due to my far-reaching experience, I am competent in unraveling even the most complex tax mysteries and disputes. My CPA training benefits my estate planning practice, too. In the process of drafting comprehensive wills and trusts, I carefully account for every asset and plan for any tax burdens that may arise, often facilitating a much smoother inheritance for the heirs of my clients. Prior to becoming certified as a CPA, I made sure to establish a solid foundation in business both in and out of the classroom, and the acumen I’ve attained has served me well. Not only am I better able to run my own practice than I otherwise would be; I am able to help other small business owners fulfill their dreams, as well.

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2006 with a degree in Political Science, Finance, and Economics. I stayed around Champaign for law school and graduated in 2009. I then worked at a big law firm in downtown Chicago. It was boring, so I quit in early 2011. I thought that I could not be happy practicing law - I was wrong. After I quit the traditional law firm life, I began representing my own clients. I realize now that I love helping normal people, small business owners, and non-profits address a variety of legal issues. I hope to hear from you.

G'day, my name is Michele! I work with startups, entrepreneurs and small/medium-sized businesses across the country in a wide array of industries. I help them with all of their ongoing, daily legal needs. This includes entity formation, M&A, contract drafting and review, employment, asset sale & acquisition, and business sales or shareholder exits. I'm half-Australian, half-Italian, and I've lived the last 20+ years of my life in America. I've lived all over the USA, completing high school in the deep south, graduating cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis, and then cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center. After law school I worked for the Los Angeles office of Latham & Watkins, LLP. After four intense and rewarding years there, I left to become General Counsel and VP of an incredible, industry-changing start-up called Urban Mining Company (UMC) that manufactures rare earth permanent magnets. I now work for Phocus Law where I help run our practice focused on entrepreneurs, startups, and SMEs. I love what I do, and I'd love to be of help! My focus is on providing stress-free, enjoyable, and high-quality legal service to all of my clients. Being a good lawyer isn't enough: the client experience should also be great. But work isn't everything, and I love my free time. I've been an avid traveler since my parents put me on a plane to Italy at 9-months old. I'm also a music nut, and am still looking for that perfect client that will engage me to explain why Dark Side Of The Moon is the greatest album of all time. Having grown up in a remote, and gorgeous corner of Australia, I feel a strong connection to nature, and love being in the elements.
