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.
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.
In a loan agreement template, the amount of the loan is in print. The printed terms prevent future dispute of loan terms. If there is interest on the loan amount, the amount of interest is also part of the documented material. Having the loan amount clear ensures no disagreement about what the borrower receives. The borrower is also clear about repayment expectations. Repayment expectations include the amount of the loan plus interest. It also includes the length of time the borrower must repay the total amount. The time the lender allows for repayment is part of the options the borrower conveys in writing. The timeframe might be days, weeks, months, or years.
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.
