Customer Question

I want to borrow a fixed sum of money from my sister and make sure that she is comfortable in a legal sense so as not to make her feel that she is dependant on trust alone. In particular in the even of my premature death. So I want to know if I can have a legal contract drafted that takes care of this please? I imagine that this is relatively straightforward and that is you take over the information it can be drafted?

Hello,

You do not need anything fancy, a letter along the following lines which states that:

I, >>>>your name and address>>> acknowledge receipt of the sum of >>> (as requested my me) from your sister (give her name and address) and that you will repay it to her by >>>>>.

Signed by yourself and your sister.

You may ask someone to witness your signatures as well.

All the best

Hello


 


I would also include the sum that I will pay her each month as part of the agreement.


 


Key elements:


 


£30,000 to be repaid in 2 years (I can add more detail)


Monthly payments


the details as you state above in your summary about names and addresses.


Some reassurance that this is a legally binding arrangement etc - so I hope there is legal speak to enable her to feel that in any event she can be assured of a claim.


 


I will set up a life insurance policy that covers the sum and is for her


 


Thanks
