Formal Request to Extend Loan

This document is a letter formally requesting the extension of a loan which can be used by a party to a loan agreement to ask the lender to change the date on which the loan is to be fully repaid. As a general practice, loan agreements will often state the method with which the loan can be extended, usually by either party (most likely the borrower) initiating a formal request to have the loan extended. This document serves that purpose, as it counts as a written notice used to request that the other party agree to an extension of the loan repayment date contained in the loan agreement.

The document has been created in from the standpoint that there have been unforeseen circumstances which have affected the borrower's ability to pay back the loan at the stipulated time. The sender also has the opportunity to state till what time they will like the loan repayment to be extended. Upon reception of this letter, the receiving party (the lender) will have to write back to the sender informing whether they have agreed to extend the loan or not, or whether they have agreed to extend the loan but to a different date.

This document has been drafted in a general format so that it can be used where the loan is a cosumer loan or a commercial loan.

This document can be used across all juridisctions of the United Kingdom.
