Loan Agreement FAQs

What are Loan Agreements?

A Loan Agreement or Facility Agreement is a contract between a creditor and debtor that outlines the details of the loan. It is usually given to the borrowing party by the lender bank or financial institution that is lending.

Why should I use a Loan Agreement?

Loan Agreements are the best way for lenders to specify in detail the terms of the loan that they are providing for the borrower. It’s imperative that these terms are explained and in writing in order to ensure that both parties are on the same page and fully understand the terms of the agreement they are making.

Having the Loan Agreement in writing also makes them easier to enforce if the situation arises.

Are Loan Agreements legally binding?

Like all contracts, to be enforceable a Loan Agreement must satisfy certain criteria and incorporate the fundamental elements of a legally binding contract. In some situations Loan Agreements may be subject to specific statutory and regulatory requirements to be fully legally binding and enforceable should either party not fulfil the obligations set out in the agreement.

Having the Loan Agreement in writing also makes them easier to enforce if the situation arises.

Loan Agreements vs Promissory Notes

The main difference between a Loan Agreement and a Promissory Note is that a Loan Agreement usually contains more extensive provisions.

A Promissory Note In its simplest form is an ‘I O U’; a promise to pay to record a commitment to meet that obligation. Sometimes more suited to arrangement between connected parties such as family members, we see Loan Agreements are more frequently used.
