Promissory Note

A promissory note is a legal document that outlines the terms and conditions of a loan agreement between two parties. It is a legally binding document that states the amount of money being borrowed, the interest rate, and the payment schedule. The borrower promises to repay the loan to the lender in accordance with the terms and conditions outlined in the note. It is typically used when someone needs to borrow money from another person or a financial institution.

It is important to follow the relevant province and federal laws when preparing and signing the note. The laws vary by provinces, so it is important to familiarize yourself with the applicable laws in your area before writing or signing a promissory note. It is always prudent to consult with a legal professional in order to prepare a legally binding and correct promissory note.

Promissory notes can be prepared by either the lender or the borrower as well.

It is important to ensure that the note is properly filled out and signed by both parties to ensure that the agreement is legally binding.
