This agreement is subject to the broad principles of contract law. Where the Borrower has provided security, Lenders may wish to perfect that security in accordance with the provisions of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth).
There are a number of issues that need to be addressed in order for a lender to enforce its security, such as: The loan agreement must contain a right of enforcement (including detailed provisions regarding when and how a lender can enforce its security). Ideally the enforcement provisions should be tailored to reflect the nature of the secured asset. Then the lender must formally demand repayment. There must be some agreement as to how the lender takes possession of the secured assets (or in some cases, ownership must pass in order for the security to be valid – for example, in the case of a legal mortgage of shares). The loan agreement must contain a power of sale in relation to the secured assets. The security may be invalid unless registered at Companies House and in the borrower’s company registers. If an individual or partnership provides security over chattels, the requirements of the rather arcane Bills of Sale Act (1878) must be complied with. In view of the complexity of taking security, you are advised to take legal advice to ensure that the proposed security is enforceable in the event of default in repayment.
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.
This subfolder contains long and short form versions of loan agreements. These agreements contain a number of provisions including clauses on interest and repayments, and detailed provision for representations and warranties, covenants and undertakings. The Short Form Loan Agreement does not include the same level of detail or protection, and is suitable for less complex transactions.
