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.
Where the Lender has requested that the borrower provide guarantors, those guarantors should also carefully read the entire Loan Agreement and their guarantee obligations, and sign where indicated.
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.
A company is a party to this agreement they should ensure that the Loan Agreement is signed by two authorised signatories, either two directors or a director and a company secretary. Where a company only has a single director, that person may sign the agreement as the sole director.
