This template is an alternative to our Short Form Loan Agreement. It is in the form of a letter sent from the lender to the borrower, setting out the terms on which the lender will make available a loan to the borrower.
The letter includes all the standard clauses you would expect to find in a short form loan agreement and is based on our basic loan agreement template.
The borrower, upon agreeing to the terms and confirming their acceptance will sign and return a form of acceptance to the lender, this is attached to the back of the template.
The principal terms of the loan are set out in the letter and include:
- Details of the Loan Facility;
- Interest and Default Interest;
- Representations and Warranties;
- Miscellaneous provisions;
- Governing Law and Jurisdiction; and
- Form of Acceptance.
It is suitable for use whether the lender or borrower is a business or an individual.
Should the lending relationship you seek to achieve require more detail or protection, you may wish to download and use our alternative Long Form Loan Agreement.
