The borrowing of money between two parties is a regular practice in business. A loan agreement letter details all of the contract terms between the borrower and the lender. A loan agreement can exist for any loan between two entities but is most often used between banks and companies. The loan agreement is a legally binding contract that includes all the terms for borrowing and repaying a specific sum of money.
Format and Content
A loan agreement with a bank, lending company or large corporation will usually be standardized by their legal department. The loan agreement letter format will follow that of any legal contract. The content must explain the financial obligations of both parties: what the lender will provide and how the borrower is expected to return the sum. The time period and details of payment should be included in this letter, as well.
This sample loan agreement letter is between a local banking institute and a small business. The amount is relatively small and therefore the terms are simple. The company received financing through the owner’s personal credit with the bank and therefore did not need to put up any collateral which makes this letter very straightforward. The company’s owner will need to sign the agreement to receive the loan.
