A loan document (or loan instrument) is a document that records a loan agreement between a borrower and lender. Loan documents often consist of multiple documents all associated with the one transaction including letters of offer/acceptance, acknowledgements, declarations, direct debit requests and guarantees.
As with deeds and mortgage documents, it is often claimed that the signatures of one or multiple borrowers on a loan document have been forged and forensic examinations can be conducted to determine whether or not the signatures are genuine.
Sufficient specimens of the purported signatory (as well as the suspected writer) will allow forensic examinations to be undertaken to determine the genuineness or otherwise of the questioned signatures. Handwritten entries (such as dates and names) on the document may also warrant examination.
