The loan agreements originated by commercial banks, savings banks, finance companies, insurance organizations, and investment banks are very different from each other and all feed a different purpose. "Commercial banks" and "Savings banks," because they accept deposits and benefit from FDIC insurance, generate loans that incorporate the concepts of the "public trust." Prior to interstate banking, that "public trust" was easily measured by State bank regulators who could see how local deposits were used to fund the working capital needs of local industry and businesses, and the benefits associated with those organization's employment.
The third section is dedicated to the specifics of the loan transaction; it contains the responsibilities of the borrower and the lender, the measures to be undertaken in the event of the borrower's inability to repay the loan; there is also information on the extent to which changes can be made to the agreement. The third section is drawn up after detailed negotiations between the lender and the borrower.
If you have any queries in future, then you should be able to easily contact the lender. For this purpose, you should ensure that the company name, corresponding address and the phone number are mentioned in the loan agreement than the details about the agent who has been processing the loan for you.
In certain cases where you have repaid some installments of a previous student loan independently, you would be given the authority of branching away the Co-borrower. This is known as Co-Borrower Release and by doing so, you ensure that the loan repayment is entirely yours. This also puts you in a position where you are not hit by the Credit History of your Co-Borrower. Both of you are separate entities speaking from the loan perspective and you would hence need to take charge of repaying your loan off.
It is an unsaid rule in the world of loans that one needs a co-signer to ensure that the student loan gets approved. That said, it does not mean that you would not get loans if you do not have a co-signer to sign on your agreement. There are some lenders in the market who would offer loans to you with you having to worry about the co-signer.
