About this document

Lending to friends and family can be a difficult.

A written agreement may seem too formal or raise questions of trust. But not using one can result in confusion about the terms, or mistaking the loan as a gift. After considering whether you want to be a lender, working out how to protect your money without seeming to question the integrity of the borrower can be challenging.

This agreement is simple in order to bridge the gap between not using an agreement at all, and using a longer, more comprehensive one. It is, however, legally binding and enforceable.

It could be used for situations such as short-term lending to a friend or family member to buy a car, or for longer period loans for a deposit on a property, or to fund an event or large purchase.

Either party may be abroad or in the UK, and the loan can be of any size.

This agreement contains no provisions for security or for a guarantor. If you want to bring in a guarantor, this document may be more suitable.
