Always obtain loan agreements in writing and read the fine print. One of the biggest mistakes borrowers make is entering into verbal agreements. If things go wrong there is no evidence to prove the case. Debtors should know the number of deferred payments, payment schedule, fees or penalties, and how the lender reports suspended payments to credit bureaus.
To stay clear of any legal involvement, both parties concerned must comply and honor all agreements made. Since the loan agreement serves as a contract and legal documentation, a violation of the terms and agreements can lead to a legal case and the written agreement can function as proof in court.
Prior to entering into a loan agreement, the "borrower" first makes representations about his affairs surrounding his character, creditworthiness, cashflow, and any collateral that he may have available to pledge as security for a loan. These representations are taken into consideration and the lender then determines under what conditions (terms), if any, they are prepared to advance money.
Along with the fundamental requirements in the loan agreement, both local and national laws of government applicable in the loan must similarly be included. Likewise, there are loan types that require bank regulations so this should be included in the agreement as well. You will find that there are a lot of other provisions for different types of loans. It is imperative that you know about them and get them included in the agreement. If you are not familiar with the provisions for each different loan.
There are many financial institutions that offer private student loans with bad credit. The only fuss in the deal is the requirements of the financial institutions. Most entities that I know of providing this service would require a Co-borrower or a Co-Signer. This means as a student you and your parents would need to sign on the loan agreement agreeing to repay the loan.
