Georgia Promissory Note Templates (2)

Updated March 25, 2024

Georgia promissory note templates are a pair of documents structured to add legality and cohesiveness to a loan transaction between two parties. The documents are completely jointly by both the lender and borrower in the transaction. In the document, the parties will be required to agree on sections regarding payment types, due dates, late fees, and other areas of the agreement.

Usury Rate – The default is 7% if no written contract is established. For written contracts, the maximum 16% on loans below $3,000; 5% per month on loans between $3,000 and $250,000, and no limit on loans above $250,000.

By Type (2)

Secured Promissory Note – Gives the lender security in the case of a default on the balance. The borrower is required to set aside a possession such as a home, vehicle, or another worthy physical item. If the borrower ends up defaulting, the items in security will be given to the lender.

Unsecured Promissory Note – This document is very similar to the secured version, but differs in the amount of financial protection the lender has in the agreement. If the borrower defaults, the lender will have no immediate way to receive his or her money.
