Delaware Promissory Note Templates

Create a high quality document online now!

The Delaware promissory note templates are documents created to bind two parties into a contract to help ensure a loaned balance is paid in a timely manner. In the agreement, both the lender and borrower agree on various details of the loan, such as the payment method, the interest rate, late fees, the time frame required for acceleration, and other pertinent information. Ensure a legal interest rate is chosen for the agreement by checking the Usury rate for Delaware found in 6 Del.C. § 2301(a).


Secured Promissory Note – Protects the lender from financial damage by being guaranteed either a home, vehicle or other worthy possession of the borrower in the case of a default on the balance.

Unsecured Promissory Note – This version provides very little to no protection for the lender as there is no security in the case of a default. Because of this, the lender should ensure the borrower has a reputable credit and/or is a trustworthy individual.

Usury Rate

Under Delaware law, except as provided below, a lender may not charge a borrowed interest at a rate more than 5% over the Federal Reserve discount rate including any surcharge. If an interest rate is not specified, the legal rate is 5% over the Federal Reserve discount rate including any surcharge. 6 Del.C. § 2301(a)

In addition, Delaware law states, “Notwithstanding any other provision in this chapter to the contrary, there shall be no limitation on the rate of interest which may be legally charged for the loan or use of money, where the amount of money loaned or used exceeds $100,000, and where repayment thereof is not secured by a mortgage against the principal residence of any borrower.” 6 Del.C. § 2301(c)
Del. Code Ann. tit. 6, § 2301 (West)
