Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.7 | 17 Installments Loans Installment loans can be unsecured or secured. Unsecured Loan (or Signature Loan) – Higher risk to the lender as good credit standing of borrower is the only requirement. Secured Loan: –Cosigner – agrees to pay debt if borrower defaults; has legal obligation for repayment –Collateral – a security interest in the property pledged as collateral. Collateral provides lender with loan repayment assurance Acceleration Clause – Unpaid installments (often just one) results in loan default and immediate repayment required for remaining balance due.

All rights reserved.7 | 18 Purchase Loan Installment Contracts Installment purchase agreements (or collateral installment loans) – ownership passes to the buyer when the contract is signed. –Ex: Mortgage Loans, Retail Purchases Conditional sales contracts (or financing leases) – ownership passes to the buyer when the last installment payment has been made. –Ex: Car Loans, Equipment Purchases

Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company. All rights reserved.7 | 22 Other Methods Add-On Interest Method – interest calculated by applying an interest rate to the amount borrowed times number of years. Ex: I = PRT, where: I = Interest or finance charge, P = Principal Borrowed, R = Interest Rate, T = Time of loan period Ex: A $2,000 Loan for 2 years borrowed at 9% interest would be: $2,000 X 0.09 X 2 Years = $360 Interest + $2,000 = $2,360 Total / 24 Months = $98.33 / Month Payment Rule of 78s (or Sum of the Digits) method for calculating prepayment penalties – assessed for paying off a loan early due to borrower having use of more money early in loan period than later when paid. Discount method of calculating interest – interest deducted upfront with proceeds paid to borrower. –Ex: $2,000 Loan for 2 years borrowed at 9% interest would result in $1,640 proceeds paid to borrower. Payment is $2,000/24 = $83.33/Mo.
