    How do I write a personal loan agreement?

    A:

    A personal loan agreement should cover in detail how much money is being loaned, whether any interest is being charged, and when the loan balance is due to be repaid, along with the applicable payment schedule if the money is due to be repaid in installments, according to Nolo. This type of agreement is often called a promissory note. Though a loan agreement that has been properly signed by all parties involved is typically considered a binding legal document in all states, getting it notarized may be a good choice for added protection.
