In this Loan Agreement (“Agreement”), which begins on the reverse side, all references to “Credit Union,” “we,” “our,” or “us,” mean the Credit Union whose name appears above and anyone to whom the Credit Union assigns or transfers this Agreement. All references to “you,” or “your” mean each person who signs this Agreement as a borrower.
PAYMENTS — You promise to make payments of the amount and at the time shown in the Truth in Lending Disclosure. You may prepay any amount without penalty. If you prepay any part of what you owe, you are still required to make the regularly scheduled payments, unless we have agreed to a change in the payment schedule. Because this is a simple interest loan, if you do not make payments exactly as scheduled, your final payment may be more or less than the amount of the final payment that is disclosed. If you elect credit insurance, we will either include the premium in your payments or extend the term of your loan. If the term is extended, you will be required to make additional payments of the scheduled amount, until what you owe has been paid. You promise to make all payments to the place we choose. If this loan refinances another loan we have with you, the other loan will be canceled and refinanced as of the date of this loan.
LOAN PROCEEDS BY MAIL — If the proceeds of this loan are mailed to you, interest on this loan begins on the date the loan proceeds are mailed to you.
SECURITY FOR LOAN — This Agreement is secured by all property described in the “Security” section of the Truth in Lending Disclosure. Property securing other loans you have with us also secures this loan, unless the property is a dwelling. A dwelling secures this loan only if it is described in the “Security” section of the Truth in Lending Disclosure for this loan. In addition to your pledge of shares, we may also have what is known as a statutory lien on all individual and joint accounts you have with us. A statutory lien means we have the right under federal law and many state laws to claim an interest in your accounts. We can enforce a statutory lien against your shares and dividends, and if any, interest and deposits, in all individual and joint accounts you have with us to satisfy any outstanding financial obligation that is due and payable to us. We may exercise our right to enforce this lien without further notice to you, to the extent permitted by law. For all borrowers: You pledge as security for this loan all shares and dividends and, if any, all deposits and interest in all joint and individual accounts you have with the credit union now and in the future. The statutory lien and/or your pledge will allow us to apply the funds in your account(s) to what you owe when you are in default. The statutory lien and your pledge do not apply to any Individual Retirement Account or any other account that would lose special tax treatment under state or federal law if given as security.
DEFAULT — You will be in default under this Agreement if you do not make a payment of the amount required on or before the date it is due. You will be in default if you break any promise you made in connection with this loan or if anyone is in default under any security agreement made in connection with this Agreement. You will be in default if you die, file for bankruptcy, become insolvent (that is, unable to pay your bills and loans as they become due), or if you made any false or misleading statements in your loan application. You will also be in default if something happens that we believe may seriously affect your ability to repay what you owe under this Agreement or if you are in default under any other loan agreement you have with us.
ACTIONS AFTER DEFAULT — When you are in default, we may demand immediate payment of the entire unpaid balance under this Agreement. You waive any right you have to receive demand for payment, notice of intent to demand immediate payment and notice of demand for immediate payment. If we demand immediate payment, you will continue to pay interest at the rate provided for in this Agreement, until what you owe has been repaid. We will also apply against what you owe any shares and/or deposits given as security under this Agreement. We may also exercise any other rights given by law when you are in default.
EACH PERSON RESPONSIBLE — Each person who signs this Agreement will be individually and jointly responsible for paying the entire amount owed under this Agreement. This means we can enforce our rights against any one of you individually or against all-of you together.
LATE CHARGE — If you are late in making a payment, you promise to pay the late charge shown in the Truth in Lending Disclosure. If no late charge is shown, you will not be charged one.
DELAY IN ENFORCING RIGHTS — We can delay enforcing any of our rights under this Agreement any number of times without losing the ability to exercise our rights later. We can enforce this Agreement against your heirs or legal representatives.
CONTINUED EFFECTIVENESS — If any part of this Agreement is determined by a court to be unenforceable, the rest will remain in effect.
NOTICES — Notices will be sent to you at the most recent address you have given us in writing. Notice to any one of you will be notice to all.
In this Agreement all references to “credit union,” “we,” “our” or “us” mean the credit union whose name appears on this document and anyone to whom the credit union assigns or transfers this Agreement. All references to the “Loan” mean the loan described in the Loan Agreement that is part of this document. All references to “you,” or “your” mean any person who signs this Agreement.
THE SECURITY FOR THE LOAN — You give us what is known as a security interest in the property described in the “Security” section of the Truth in Lending Disclosure that is part of this document (“the Property”). The security interest you give includes all accessions. Accessions are things which are attached to or installed in the Property now or in the future. The security interest also includes any replacements for the Property which you buy within 10 days of the Loan and any extensions, renewals or refinancing of the Loan. It also includes any money you receive from selling the Property or from insurance you have on the Property. If the value of the Property declines, you promise to give us more property as security if asked to do so.
WHAT THE SECURITY INTEREST COVERS/CROSS COLLATERAL PROVISIONS — The security interest secures the Loan and any extensions, renewals or refinancing of the Loan. If the Property is not a dwelling, the security interest also secures any other loans, including any credit card loan, you have now or receive in the future from us and any other amounts you owe us for any reason now or in the future, except any loan secured by your principal residence. If the Property is household goods as defined by the Federal Trade Commission Credit Practices Rule or your principal residence, the Property will secure only this Loan and not other loans or amounts you owe us.
OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY — You promise that you own the Property or, if this Loan is to buy the Property, you promise you will use the Loan proceeds for that purpose. You promise that no one else has any interest in or claim against the Property that you have not already told us about. You promise not to sell or lease the Property or to use it as security for a loan with another creditor until the Loan is repaid. You promise you will allow no other security interest or lien to attach to the Property either by your actions or by operation of law.
PROTECTING THE SECURITY INTEREST — If your state issues a title for the Property, you promise to have our security interest shown on the title. We may have to file what is called a financing statement to protect our security interest from the claims of others. You irrevocably authorize us to execute (on your behalf), if applicable, and file one or more financing, continuation or amendment statements pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) in form satisfactory to us. You promise to do whatever else we think is necessary to protect our security interest in the Property. You also promise to pay all costs, including but not limited to any attorney fees, we incur in protecting our security interest and rights in the Property, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
USE OF PROPERTY — Until the Loan has been paid off, you promise you will: (1) Use the Property carefully and keep it in good repair. (2) Obtain our written permission before making major changes to the Property or changing the address where the Property is kept. (3) Inform us in writing before changing your address. (4) Allow us to inspect the Property. (5) Promptly notify us if the Property is damaged, stolen or abused. (6) Not use the Property for any unlawful purpose. (7) Not to retitle property in another state without telling us.
PROPERTY INSURANCE, TAXES AND FEES — You promise to pay all taxes and fees (like registration fees) due on the Property and to keep the Property insured against loss and damage. The amount and coverage of the property insurance must be acceptable to us. You may provide the property insurance through a policy you already have, or through a policy you get and pay for. You promise to make the insurance policy payable to us and to deliver the policy or proof of coverage to us if asked to do so.
If you cancel your insurance and get a refund, we have a right to the refund. If the Property is lost or damaged, we can use the insurance settlement to repair the Property or apply it towards what you owe. You authorize us to endorse any draft or check which may be payable to you in order for us to collect any refund or benefits due under your insurance policy.
If you do not pay the taxes or fees on the Property when due or keep it insured, we may pay these obligations, but we are not required to do so. Any money we spend for taxes, fees or insurance will be added to the unpaid balance of the Loan and you will pay interest on those amounts at the same rate you agreed to pay on the Loan. We may receive payments in connection with the insurance from a company which provides the insurance. We may monitor our loans for the purpose of determining whether you and other borrowers have complied with the insurance requirements of our loan agreements or may engage others to do so. The insurance charge added to the Loan may include (1) the insurance company’s payments to us and (2) the cost of determining compliance with the insurance requirements. If we add amounts for taxes, fees or insurance to the unpaid balance of the Loan, we may increase your payments to pay the amount added within the term of the insurance or term of the Loan.
INSURANCE NOTICE — If you do not purchase the required property insurance, the insurance we may purchase and charge you for will cover only our interest in the Property. The premium for this insurance may be higher because the insurance company may have given us the right to purchase insurance after uninsured collateral is lost or damaged. The insurance will not be liability insurance and will not satisfy any state financial responsibility or no fault laws.
DEFAULT — You will be in default if you break any promise you make or fail to perform any obligation you have under this Agreement. You will be in default if any property you have given us as security is repossessed by someone else, seized under a forfeiture or similar law, or if anything else happens that significantly affects the value of the Property or our security interest in it. You will also be in default under this Agreement if the Loan is in default.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE IN DEFAULT — When you are in default, we may demand immediate payment of the outstanding balance of the Loan without giving you advance notice and take possession of the Property. You agree the Credit Union has the right to take possession of the Property without judicial process if this can be done without breach of the peace. If we ask, you promise to deliver the Property at a time and place we choose. If the Property is a motor vehicle or boat, you agree that we may obtain a key or other device necessary to unlock and operate it, when you are in default. We will not be responsible for any other property not covered by this Agreement that you leave inside the Property or that is attached to the Property. We will try to return that property to you or make it available for you to claim.
After we have possession of the Property, we can sell it and apply the money to any amounts you owe us. We will give you notice of any public disposition or the date after which a private disposition will be held. Our expenses for taking possession of and selling the Property will be deducted from the money received from the sale. Those costs may include the cost of storing the Property, preparing it for sale and attorney’s fees to the extent permitted under state law or awarded under the Bankruptcy Code.
If you have agreed to pay the Loan, you must pay any amount that remains unpaid after the sale money has been applied to the unpaid balance of the Loan and to what you owe under this Agreement. You agree to pay interest on that amount at the same rate as the Loan, until that amount has been paid.
DELAY IN ENFORCING RIGHTS AND CHANGES IN THE LOAN — We can delay enforcing any of our rights under this Agreement any number of times without losing the ability to exercise our rights later. We can enforce this Agreement against your heirs or legal representatives. If we change the terms of the Loan, you agree that this Agreement will remain in effect.
CONTINUED EFFECTIVENESS — If any part of this Agreement is determined by a court to be unenforceable, the rest will remain in effect.
