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.
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.
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.
Sale of the loan proviso: A lender might want to include the option of selling the loan to another party. This allows the lender to free themselves from the agreement through the sale, while still recouping some money. The loan buyer then becomes the creditor. The borrower remains the debtor and must repay the new loan holder.
