The content of the loan agreement includes the precise details of the agreement that has transpired between lender and debtor. Not only that, the agreement should also consider the standard government laws that is already in effect or established. Since the laws were created to protect all people, it is beneficial to both parties concerned.
To sum up, the loan agreement contains the terms and the conditions that are pointed out so that the borrower can draw out a loan. The terms and conditions are set by the lender, which can be a bank, or another type of financial institution. In fact, the loan represents a type of "facility" that is offered by the lender, and that is why the agreement on the conditions under which a loan can be taken out is also referred to as a facility agreement. The agreement comprises four sections.
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.
The interest rate for these types of loans is plus 1 percent of prime and is adjusted monthly. For these types of loans, borrowers are completely responsible for all third party costs and points can be bought with these types of loans to keep long term costs down.
Whatever is agreed regarding applicable penalties for late or inability to comply should not only be discussed but also defined. Payment deadlines also should be set and included in the loan agreement as well. In order to effectively carry out the terms in the agreement, it is but proper to include the contact information of both the lender and debtor should the need arise to call them out.
