For obvious reasons we can't show you the actual Personal Loan Agreement before you purchase it, but outlined below are the explanatory notes that go with it. These explain the thinking behind the loan agreement, and should give you a good idea of the terms of the personal loan.
Personal Loan Agreement
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement sets out the amount of the personal loan to be made and provides for payment of the personal loan within seven days of the Borrower returning the unqualified acceptance - see the comments above on this subject. The Borrower should, when returning the personal loan letter, provide details of his/her bank account.
2. REPAYMENT OF INTEREST
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement sets out the interest rate and details of the amount of the personal loan and the relevant bank need to be inserted. Alternatively, this clause in the Personal Loan Agreement could simply say that the Borrower will pay interest on the personal loan at the rate of 10% a year, or whatever figure is proposed. This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement provides for interest on the personal loan to be payable quarterly, but it could be monthly, annually or some other period. It is sensible for a Lender to inform the Borrower on each interest payment date of the amount which is due.
3. REPAYMENT OF PRINCIPAL
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement specifies the number of repayments of principal (as opposed to interest) which have to be made and when these are to start. Instead of the language used here, this paragraph could specify the amount of each repayment and the date (e.g. £1,000 on 1 January each year).
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement makes it clear that the Borrower can repay any or all of the personal loan at any time. In the case of bank borrowing, a bank will sometimes charge an additional fee for early repayment or require the giving of a period of notice before prepayment but that is not the case here.
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement deals with the mechanics of payment of both interest and principal and the Lender should fill in the relevant bank account details.
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement, much shorter than would be the case with a bank loan, gives the Lender the right to call in the personal loan if the Borrower does not keep up his/her payments or becomes insolvent or fails to pay his/her other debts - which is usually a sign of insolvency.
This is a very simple clause in the Personal Loan Agreement which is designed:
(a) to prevent the Borrower giving security over his/her assets without the Lender's consent. A Borrower who grants security to his/her bank may not have any assets left to repay an unsecured loan such as the one covered by this letter;
(b) to ensure that (especially in the case of a relatively unsophisticated Borrower) legal advice as to the meaning and effect is taken before the letter is signed. It should be made clear to the Borrower that you will not countenance any attempts to vary/negotiate the terms of this Personal Loan Agreement. This requirement should give some protection against any subsequent attempt to challenge attempts to enforce the terms of the personal loan letter.
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement makes it clear that any notice to be given under the personal loan letter must be in writing and specifies the method of delivery and the time that service of a notice is deemed effective.
The Borrower is not allowed to assign the debt to a third party without the Lender's consent.
This clause of the Personal Loan Agreement gives the Lender the ability to waive a breach without setting a precedent.
The Personal Loan Agreement letter does not deal with the governing law or the method of dispute resolution. If both Lender and Borrower are in the same country, the law of the country will apply and any dispute will go to the courts - the best place where a borrower fails to meet his/her repayment obligations.
