If you are planning to build your own home, the entire process can be extremely overwhelming. There are very few projects you or anyone else can take on that are more stressful and more prone to problems. One of the most dizzying aspects of building your own home is having a grasp on all of the legal agreements and contracts that you will need to enter into to get the job done.
Loan deferment is a special financing alternative that lets borrowers skip a payment without receiving derogatory credit reporting. The option to defer payments is available for most types of loans including mortgage, auto, credit cards, and student loans. Debtors must obtain lender approval and abide by deferment policies.
Defined and addressed in the contract are the issues concerning the agreement. First and foremost, the rights and obligations of both parties must be defined in the written contract. Termination of contract and termination fees should also be included. Commonly, you will find the interest rates and other applicable fees included in the agreement.
Loan agreements fall into two main types, according to the type of lender, and according to the type of facility. With respect to the type of lender, there are bilateral loans and syndicated loans. Syndicated loans are provided by groups of lenders, and their structuring and arrangement, as well as their administration, are carried out by more than one bank, commercial or investment ones, and the lending banks are also referred to as arrangers.
"Investment banks" create loan agreements that cater to the needs of the investors whose funds they attempt to attract; "investors" are always sophisticated and accredited organizations not subject to bank regulatory supervision and the need to cater to the public trust. Investment banking activities are supervised by the SEC and their main focus is on whether the correct or proper disclosures are made to the parties who provide the funds.
