While mentioned in brief earlier, a free loan agreement template is a legal document. It must contain specific information in clear, legal language. In the event the lender or borrow decides to pursue legal action, a simple loan agreement must have correct and clear information. It will make all the difference when you take your dispute before a judge in a court of law. Every personal loan agreement template or alternative loan contract template has “must have” information in the document.
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).
The legal issues surrounding the taking of security are complex, and there are various legal forms that can be used, for example, a chattel mortgage (a mortgage over tangible and moveable property, such as plant and machinery or vehicles), fixed and floating charge, pledge, lien and assignment by way of security. Security over shares is different again, and can be achieved by way of a legal mortgage, an equitable mortgage or an equitable charge.
A person is a notary public if the state has issued them a license to fulfil such a role. The job of the notary is to ensure no fraud occurs during the official signing of the document. Part of the notarial acts the notary fulfils is to prove the lender and borrower are who they say they are before entering into an agreement. It is another measure that helps protect both parties signing the free loan agreement template.
