About this secured loan agreement

This secured loan agreement is suitable for any company or human individual to lend to one or more people. (See below for documents for loans to companies). You could use it in a business or private loan situation. If you are the borrower, you have the opportunity to edit any point you would prefer not to include.

The purpose of the loan is not important. (But of course it is important that the purpose is specified in the loan agreement.)

This agreement allows you to use shares or other financial instruments as collateral for a secured loan. The security could be any intellectual property. In addition, we have provided for a third party guarantor. That is optional of course and may be deleted easily.

There is no limit in law on the interest that the lender charges. We have provided for a greater rate of interest if the borrower falls behind with repayments.

The agreement could be whatever you want to put in it, but we have provided a sound and comprehensive set of terms, many with options. It is supported by drafting notes so that you will know whether you can safely delete some provision. It is most unlikely that you will want to add new provisions, but if you do, it is easy. Our layout and use of plain English also make it very easy to edit by deletion.

When to use this secured loan agreement

  • The lender and the borrower may be a business or an individual
  • Suitable where a company lends to a director or employee
  • Suitable for personal loans to family and friends
  • Either or both parties may be in Canada or abroad
  • Flexible for loans of any size and repayment terms of any complexity

The law in this secured loan agreement

There is little statutory regulation relating to an agreement of this nature, so you can make, more or less, the deal you choose.

Drawn outside the consumer credit legislation, this agreement is not suitable for companies in the business of lending or providing credit to consumers.

Alleviated Concerns
11 September 2017
1. There is always a concern when you are dealing with an entity based outside your country. First, you wonder how authentic it is and payment security.
2. The manner you have structured yourselves and marketing strategy is really uniform, seamless and user friendly.
3. The Borrower's warranties and security clauses as applied to an individual Borrower.
4. The realisation that the thrust in an agreement is based on simplicity, understanding and to capture what you agree upon. My view is that it may be necessary to include dispute resolution, if not, why.
5. Most definitely. It is easy to follow your agreement and at the same learn from it.

Very Flexible
11 July 2016
The document is very flexible in terms of content & its application to a very broad range of possible loan agreements. The use of 'plain English' was very welcomed.
I would definitely use it again.
