A loan agreement is a contract between a borrower and a lender which regulates the mutual promises made by each party. There are many types of loan agreements, including "facilities agreements," "revolvers," "term loans," "working capital loans." Loan agreements are documented via a compilation of the various mutual promises made by the involved parties.
A loan agreement is the document which represents the formal evidence of a loan. The document also includes important details such as covenants, positive or negative ones, the information on the collateral such as loan type and its value, as well as guarantees, the applicable interest rates, fees, the conditions according to which the loan is to be repaid, and the period of repayment envisaged.
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.
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.
