Appendix G
Form of Loan Agreement
Note: The particular provisions of loan agreements vary widely, depend-
ing on the lender’s underwriting practices, the type of loan (such as land
development, construction, permanent, conduit, or refinance), the type of
collateral (such as raw land or improved land), and local real estate prac-
tice. Some lenders employ loan agreements while others prefer to use loan
commitments, and there is substantial overlap in the content of these two
types of agreements. The following form, which is in the format of a loan
agreement, attempts to include only typical provisions that appear in most
permanent loan agreements to fund the acquisition of improved property.
The practitioner should become familiar with the lender’s underwriting
practices, the type of loan, the type of collateral, and local real estate prac-
tice before preparing a loan agreement or commitment. The practitioner
also should be aware that, instead of a loan agreement or commitment,
some lenders use a loan application format in which similar terms and
conditions appear in an application document from the borrower to the
lender that the lender will approve in writing when it is acceptable. What-
ever format the parties use, the lender’s lawyer customarily prepares the
document at the borrower’s expense.
