The borrower should read the entire agreement. The borrower is responsible for understanding what is read. If the document is confusing, the borrower must question the document and get clarity before signing. When the borrower signs the document the individual is stating the document is clear, understood, and correct. The borrower and lender should have identification so the notary public can perform the official screening necessary at the loan signing.
Late fees: Many borrowers frown at paying more than they already must for a loan. Adding late fees to the agreement’s wording can help in preventing potential overdue payments in the future. The wording can allow for the late fees being something the lender applies at his or her discretion.
Secured Loans – If the borrower is considered a high-risk then the lender may want to request an asset that will be in the lender’s possession if the debt is not paid. This type of loan is most commonly used in pawn shops.
A company is a party to this agreement they should ensure that the Loan Agreement is signed by two authorised signatories, either two directors or a director and a company secretary. Where a company only has a single director, that person may sign the agreement as the sole director.
