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.
So, what material is in a loan agreement? Let’s explore the features of the document in question a bit further. A free loan agreement template is a money lending agreement. Sometimes it is a business loan agreement, personal loan agreement, or loan contract. Sometimes you might find a simple loan agreement of a loan contract template.
A loan agreement is a written document that sets the terms of money or personal property that is to be borrowed by someone else for a period of time. The borrower is given the full sum of the loan on the first (1st) on the day of commencement and must pay back the lender along with any interest stated. The interest is usually computed as a yearly percentage (also referred as an APR).
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.
