What is a Promissory Note?

If you’re lending money to a relative or friend, you’ll want to craft a written agreement. A Promissory Note spells out how and when you are to be paid, and what happens if the borrower doesn’t repay the loan.
A promissory note, sometimes referred to as a note payable, is a legal instrument, in which one party promises in writing to pay a determinate sum of money to the other, either at a fixed or determinable future time or on demand of the payee, under specific terms.
Having a note won’t guarantee you’ll be repaid, but it does help clear up ambiguities and serves as evidence if you ever decide to take the borrower to court.
