Loans are a common part of day to day finance in our society. Some are large loans provided by banks for home buying or education, others are for the purchase of automobiles . But, the most frequently used type of loan is much smaller in size.
What, exactly, was the amount of the money owed? Most importantly, a loan agreement makes it clear that the money given was, in fact, a loan – and not a gift. Also, it tidies up the loan by setting out payment requirements. Is the loan to be paid back in installments, or all by a certain date? Is there any interest being charged on the loan, or late charges if the loan is not paid back?
Any provisions that apply to the loan are also something the document includes. The form is to ensure that both the borrower and lender agree to the terms and provisions. Once the borrower, lender, and a witness document the form it is a legal and binding agreement. When loaning money, if you want to ensure repayment, use the personal loan agreement. With the provisions in the document the regulations are clear. After signing it, the borrower or the lender cannot make changes to the initial agreement.
The family loan agreement is a template that allows two (2) family members construct a legal contract for the lending of money to a borrower in exchange for being paid back at a later time with interest. Considering the person that is borrowing the money is family, the loan is unsecured which means there are no assets behind the paper agreement. If the borrower does not repay the debt, the lender’s only route to get their money back will be to go through legal action or small claims court.
