It is the lender’s responsibility to determine the credit worthiness of the borrower. The borrower’s trustworthiness can be evaluated through credit reports and references. The borrower might also consider things like the length of time the borrower has lived somewhere or the amount of time at a job. The lender should read over the loan agreement draft to see if all the provisions and writings are accurate. The lender’s signature will convey that the document is read, understood, and accurate.
This document should be read carefully by the parties and the guarantors, where applicable. Every party should then sign and return a physical copy of the loan agreement. Individuals should ensure that their signature of the document is witnessed by another adult person - over the age of 18.
Unsecured Loans – Most standard loans are ‘unsecured’. This means that if the borrower does not pay back the lender then the lender will have to take the borrower to small claims in order to court order for the borrower to pay back the money.
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).
