The personal loan agreement is an unsecured contract that allows one party to borrow money, the borrower, from someone else, the lender, in exchange for the lender to be paid more money in return of payment. A loan ca be constructed in a number of ways, but the most common is for the borrower to pay back a portion on a timely basis until the lender it is fully reimbursed. During the course of the payments, the lender collects an interest on the balance not paid yet. The longer the loan has not been paid back, the more money the lender will receive cumulatively throughout the term of the loan.
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.
A personal loan agreement template is a document that anyone can use to protect themselves as a lender. Filling out a simple loan agreement ensures that there is no confusion between the lender and the person in need of funds. A loan contract template takes the difficulty out of designing a concise and precise document. If the document is to be worth anything at all in a court of law, it must be accurate and define every aspect of the loan in question.
In addition to the above information, some lenders add additional provisos to a loan agreement. Again, the terms of the loan must be clear. The borrow must agree to the terms in the document. Both the borrower and lender sign the agreement when the draft is complete. A witness is recommended but not always a legal necessity. A lender and/or borrower will need to find out the laws where you reside to see if a witness or notary public must see the parties sign the document, then both parties will have to provide proof of identification before signing in front of a legal notary.
