What is an Unsecured Promissory Note?
An unsecured promissory note is a legally binding contract between two parties where one party agrees to pay the other a certain amount of money at a specific time in the future. The reason it is called 'unsecured' is because the borrower does not want to pledge any assets as collateral for the loan.
An unsecured promissory note is often issued by a company or individual who needs capital. A person borrowing money from another may create this note as part of the conditions for the loan agreement. The borrower agrees to pay back the amount owed plus an agreed-upon rate of interest over time in accordance with stipulations set out in that document. If those terms are not met, then it becomes due immediately and penalties will be incurred on top of what has already been paid back.
