Usury Rate

For loans less than $25,000, the maximum is the amount announced on the 15th of each month by the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks. For loans greater than $25,000, the parties may agree in writing to any amount.

By Type (2)

Secured Promissory Note – The secured version of the template includes a section on security. Security requires the borrower to set aside an item of relative value to that of the loaned amount of money. This item is given to the lender if the borrower enters into default to help cover the remaining outstanding balance.

Unsecured Promissory Note – The unsecured version does not include a section on security, substantially increasing the lender’s financial risk. This is because the lender is not guaranteed a reimbursement if the borrower fails to pay back the loaned balance.
