For commercial banks and large financial firms, “loan contracts” are generally not classified, although “loan portfolios” are often subdivided into “personal” and “commercial” loans, while the “commercial” category is then subdivided into “industrial” and “commercial real estate” loans. “Industrial” loans are those that depend on the cash flow and solvency of the company and the widgets or services it sells. Commercial home loans are those that pay off loans, but this depends on the rental income paid by tenants who lease land, usually for long periods of time. There are more detailed rankings of credit portfolios, but these are always variations around the big topics. Before entering into a commercial loan agreement, the borrower first decides on his affairs concerning his character, his creditworthiness, his cash flow and all the guarantees he must put in collateral for a loan. These presentations are taken into account and the lender then determines the conditions under which they are willing to advance the money. Default events: These will be voluminous. However, there are good reasons for them and, if negotiated properly, they should not allow the loan to be used unless there is a serious breach of the facility agreement. As a general rule, there are “standard” trading points that are advanced by borrowers, for example. B a standard definition of major adverse amendments/effects generally refers to the effect that may affect the debtor`s ability to meet his obligations under the facility contract. The borrower may attempt to limit this obligation to his own obligations (and not to other obligations), the borrower`s payment obligations and (sometimes) his financial obligations. Potential Standard/Standard: A facility contract contains a standard provision to cover events, although these are not yet events that probably do not occur. These values are called default or sometimes potential values.
They are often negotiated by borrowers who do not want to be exposed to “hair triggers” from which they may lose access to their banking facilities. Lenders fully announce all the terms of the loan in a credit agreement. The important credit terms included in the credit agreement include the annual interest rate, the application of interest on outstanding balances, all account-related fees, the duration of the loan, payment terms and possible consequences for late payments. Finally, an agreement on union facilities will contain many provisions concerning a bank of agents and its role. These will often not be of immediate importance to the borrower, but it should consider whether the agent bank can only be replaced by its consent and that the agent bank has sufficient powers to act autonomously to give the borrower the flexibility it needs. A borrower does not wish to obtain the agreement or waiver declarations of a large consortium of lenders.
