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.
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?
These small or personal loans often occur between small business, between small businesses and individuals or among family and friends. It is often said that loaning money is the fastest way to ruin a relationship; however, when you follow a sample loan agreement, you can head off many problems. When you loan any amount of money, be it two hundred dollars or two thousand, it’s important to fill out and sign a loan agreement template.
A loan agreement template can include the payment terms the lender wants to have as a provision in the document. There are four repayment provisions the borrower can offer to a lender. There may be more than one repayment provision in the loan agreement template. The repayment plans include: (1). End of term lump sum repayment: The lender requires the borrower to repay the loan until a set end date for the note term. When the end date arrives, the borrower pays the remaining balance as a lump sum. (2)Interest only: The lender requires the borrower to make payments via increments as set forth in the loan contract agreement. The payments do not go toward the principle of the loan. Once the borrower pays off the interest, the individual must pay off the principle as a lump sum payment. (3). Principle and interest repayment method: The lender requires the borrow to repay the loan in a set number of days, weeks, months, or years. The initial payments pay off the compounded interest on the loan first. Once the interest is paid, the borrower’s payments apply to the principle of the loan. The payments continue until the entire principle is paid in full. (4). Specified periodic increments: The lender requires the borrower to repay the loan in intervals the parties agree to in the loan agreement template.
