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.
The last section will detail the information about the loan. This includes the term for the loan, the interest rate, total amount of the loan, and other financial specifics.
A simple loan agreement is a legal document that allows a lender to give access to money to a borrower with the intent on being paid back, at a specific particular date, and with interest. The amount of interest, usually described as a percentage (%) and compounded over a yearly basis, should be negotiated by the parties and may not be over the State’s usury limit. Once signed by the borrower and lender and all funds have been disbursed the agreement is legally binding and if the borrower defaults the lender may pursue legal action through small claims courts.
Loans are a common part of day to day finance in our society. Some are large loans provided by banks for home buying or education, others are for the purchase of automobiles . But, the most frequently used type of loan is much smaller in size.
