Updated June 13, 2022

A Montana promissory note template is a document used for transactions involving the lending of a monetary balance from one party to another. The template outlines important facets of the transaction such as the interest rate attached to the balance, the penalty(s) that would result from a late payment, and the payment method the borrower will be required to stick to during the course of the agreement. Once both parties have fully agreed on all the terms and conditions written in the template, it is highly recommended that a witness verify the signatures of both parties.
