Loan agreement – what elements should it contain?
Each major transaction between two parties should be confirmed by contract. It is a type of security for both parties that the agreement has been concluded. A loan agreement is an arrangement between the lender and the borrower, as defined in the Civil Code, provisions and the Credit Act consumer.
The loan agreement should contain:
- parties to the contract: lender and borrower,
- description of the subject of the contract, e.g. type of loan,
- Duration of the agreement,
- loan costs,
- return policy and deadline,
- repayment security,
- regulations and provisions regarding early repayment or the possibility of extending the repayment,
- information on the consequences of late payment, as well as cancellations and complaints,
- option to terminate the contract,
- signatures of both parties.
In the first stage, the adviser will ask you for an ID card. This document is needed to complete the loan agreement. The next stage is filling out the data on the service and the applicable conditions, i.e. the loan amount, costs and repayment time. You can ask the adviser to clarify the conditions if something is not clear to you.
Signing by both parties
The final stage is signing by both parties. Before signing the contract, be sure to check that the information provided is correct and read the applicable rules. If you do not understand a subsection, ask your advisor for additional clarifications. Signing a document is tantamount to reading and accepting the information contained therein. The signed contract takes legal force.
At Good Finance, we strive to ensure that the information presented in the contract is written in an accessible and understandable way for the client. And the whole process went smoothly and quickly. Before the loan meeting, call your adviser and find out what documents you should take with you. Coming to the branch with a set of documents will significantly speed up the whole process and after a few minutes you will leave with additional cash.
Please be advised that we operate based on the provisions of Polish law specified in particular in the Civil Code, the Consumer Credit Act and the Personal Data Protection Act.
