Promissory Note (see also Deed of Trust)

Templates and Forms

Free form. A promissory note is a written promise to pay back a certain amount of money. It does not create a lien on any real estate unless the borrower also signs a deed of trust.


These forms have been adapted from California statutes and highly-regarded practice guides to fit common situations. The law librarians have attempted to provide instructions, definitions, and examples to assist non-lawyers in understanding the purpose of the form, and what type of information to include when filling it out.

However, only lawyers (attorneys) can advise you of the correct forms for your particular situation, and what specific information to include on your forms.

It is your responsibility to determine whether this form is suited to your needs. If you have questions about what form to use, or how to fill them out, visit your local law library to do your own legal research, or consult a lawyer.
