One person might call the loan contract a promissory note or a promise to pay. Another might reference the document as a demand loan or a term loan. If the loan terms are in the title of the loan, the document template title is a secured loan or an unsecured note. All the latter document titles refer to the same type of legal documentation. A loan agreement template is a fill-in-the-blank form. You can use to define the parameters of the loan or amount of money a person borrows. A lender also defines the repayment terms. These documents help lenders and borrows avoid confusion. This paves the way to good borrower/lender relations in the future and ensures issues are easy to remedy.
A loan agreement template can include the payment terms the lender wants to have as a provision in the document. There are four repayment provisions the borrower can offer to a lender. There may be more than one repayment provision in the loan agreement template. The repayment plans include: (1). End of term lump sum repayment: The lender requires the borrower to repay the loan until a set end date for the note term. When the end date arrives, the borrower pays the remaining balance as a lump sum. (2)Interest only: The lender requires the borrower to make payments via increments as set forth in the loan contract agreement. The payments do not go toward the principle of the loan. Once the borrower pays off the interest, the individual must pay off the principle as a lump sum payment. (3). Principle and interest repayment method: The lender requires the borrow to repay the loan in a set number of days, weeks, months, or years. The initial payments pay off the compounded interest on the loan first. Once the interest is paid, the borrower’s payments apply to the principle of the loan. The payments continue until the entire principle is paid in full. (4). Specified periodic increments: The lender requires the borrower to repay the loan in intervals the parties agree to in the loan agreement template.
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 borrower should read the entire agreement. The borrower is responsible for understanding what is read. If the document is confusing, the borrower must question the document and get clarity before signing. When the borrower signs the document the individual is stating the document is clear, understood, and correct. The borrower and lender should have identification so the notary public can perform the official screening necessary at the loan signing.
