What is a Loan Agreement?

A loan agreement is a contract between two parties, the lender and the borrower. The terms of this type of legal arrangement are outlined in the document that establishes what will happen if the borrower does not pay back their debt. A typical loan agreement contains information such as: who is lending money to whom, how much money is involved, when it should be paid back by, an interest rate (how much extra money), and whether collateral must be provided. There are many different types of loans available to borrowers including auto loans car title loans, home equity lines of credit and student loans for just about every major expense you can think of!

Who needs a Loan Agreement?

Loan agreements are typically used by banks and other lending organizations to establish the amount, repayment schedule, and conditions or collateral for loans. The two primary types of loans are secured (in which case property is put up as collateral) and unsecured (in which case there is no such security). Loan repayments may be fixed interest rates, floating rates with variable margins, or some combination thereof. In addition to basic terms about borrowing money from someone else, some common provisions include the ability to make partial payments; penalties for late payment; requirements for maintaining insurance coverage on any vehicle involved in a collision.

A Loan Agreement will protect the lender and borrower equally.
