A loan agreement is a contract between two parties detailing and formalizing a loan. This can be between friends and family or from one company to another.
Its primary function is to serve as written evidence of the amount of debt and the terms under which it will be repaid, including the rate of interest (if any). The agreement serves as a legal document that is enforceable in court creating obligations on the parts of both the borrower and the lender.
Though Loan Agreements are often referred to as IOUs or Promissory Notes, Loan Agreements are different than these documents in two key respects:
- Loan Agreements are binding on both the borrower and the lender; and
- Loan Agreements are much more detailed and include extensive provisions about when and how the borrower will repay the loan and what sorts of penalties will be incurred if the borrower does not follow through with repayment.
- Loan Agreements are usually used when large sums of money are involved, such as student loans, mortgages, car loans, and business loans. For smaller and/or more informal loans, such as those between family and friends, a Promissory Note should be used.
sets out all of the terms and details of the loan, including the names and addresses of the borrower and lender, the amount of money being borrowed, how often payments will be made, the amount of the payments, and the signatures of the parties.
