Loan Agreements regulate the making of term loans from one party to another. The Simply-Docs Loan Agreements cover the necessary legal and practical commercial considerations relevant to the lending of small to medium sized amounts for specified periods of time.
In legal cases involving loans without loan agreements, the court has to try to determine who is telling the truth about the terms of a loan, or even if a loan occurred. Even if you are lending to family or a friend you are certain would never cheat you, it is important to complete a free loan agreement template in order to protect your loan and the integrity of your relationship.
If the Lender is in the business of providing loans, the provision of the National Credit Code under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 (Cth) may apply. Lenders should review whether the provisions of that Act apply to their lending activities and ensure that they are in compliance with the rules that apply to Australian credit licence holders by tailoring this agreement accordingly.
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.
