Co-signer responsibilities: If the borrower is allowing a co-signer to also sign for the loan, the details of the co-signer’s responsibilities must be in the document. The co-signer is an option for borrowers who have little to no credit or who are young and just starting to build credit.
In addition to the above information, some lenders add additional provisos to a loan agreement. Again, the terms of the loan must be clear. The borrow must agree to the terms in the document. Both the borrower and lender sign the agreement when the draft is complete. A witness is recommended but not always a legal necessity. A lender and/or borrower will need to find out the laws where you reside to see if a witness or notary public must see the parties sign the document, then both parties will have to provide proof of identification before signing in front of a legal notary.
The last section will detail the information about the loan. This includes the term for the loan, the interest rate, total amount of the loan, and other financial specifics.
It is the lender’s responsibility to determine the credit worthiness of the borrower. The borrower’s trustworthiness can be evaluated through credit reports and references. The borrower might also consider things like the length of time the borrower has lived somewhere or the amount of time at a job. The lender should read over the loan agreement draft to see if all the provisions and writings are accurate. The lender’s signature will convey that the document is read, understood, and accurate.
