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 personal loan agreement template is a document that anyone can use to protect themselves as a lender. Filling out a simple loan agreement ensures that there is no confusion between the lender and the person in need of funds. A loan contract template takes the difficulty out of designing a concise and precise document. If the document is to be worth anything at all in a court of law, it must be accurate and define every aspect of the loan in question.
Co-signer responsibilities: If the borrower is allowing a co-signer to also sign for the loan, the details of the co-signer’s responsibilities must be in the document. The co-signer is an option for borrowers who have little to no credit or who are young and just starting to build credit.
This agreement is subject to the broad principles of contract law. Where the Borrower has provided security, Lenders may wish to perfect that security in accordance with the provisions of the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth).
