When an elderly parent gives money to an adult child, the law again assumes that it is a loan and not a gift, even without a loan document or written confirmation. The adult child, who claims it is a gift, must provide some evidence to prove that his parents intended not to repay the money. An example [1] of evidence to rebut this presumption is where the adult child can show that the money was sent by the parent on a birthday card on the adult child`s birthday. Loan contracts usually contain information about: It can be confusing to know what type of loan or financial service might be right for you, as each type of loan may have different characteristics. If you find out in advance about the different products, you can make an informed decision that suits you. You will find an explanation of the general types on the credit types and other financial services page. Parents often lend money to their children, and because they are a family member, they do not insist on one of the usual precautions, for example.B. in writing with a loan contract, a promised note or even a simple I.O.U. (see example of a celebrity note here: Promisory Note) No interest or repayment plan has been agreed.

and no guarantees or guarantees to guarantee the loan. However, when a parent gives money to an infant, the law assumes that the parent has considered it a gift that does not have to be repaid. Therefore, if a parent wants to say that it was a repayable loan to a young child, they must prove it by evidence such as a loan document or a written confirmation (I.O.U. or Promissory Note) or testimony from a third party who has heard an oral loan contract, etc. If your adult child does not pay a loan, you may need to take legal action with Small Claims Court (up to $25,000 for loans). The Small Claims Court has less formal and less complex rules and procedures than the Supreme Court. Don`t worry if you don`t have solid evidence that it`s a repayable loan. The assumption of a „good deal“ or „successful trust“ means that you will succeed unless your child can provide sufficient evidence to the defence against the application to rebut the presumption.
