Loan Agreement template

A loan agreement is a legal contract between a borrower and a lender detailing the conditions for the loan. It regulates the mutual promises made by each party. These are documented via a compilation of the various mutual promises made by the involved parties. Factors like creditworthiness, cash flow and any other collateral of the borrower are kept in mind to pledge as security for a loan. Loan agreements are mostly in written form.
The object of a loan agreement is that it determines the terms and condition between the lender and borrower. The agreement is binding on both the parties and is enforceable by law. There are many types of loan agreements. 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.
