Shares as Collateral
Members shares attached to the loan are always held as collateral for a member’s loan.
Collection of Loans
The members must be present to complete their loan as the credit agreement, which is a legally binding contract, must be signed and witnessed in the Credit Union.
The Credit Union can insist that a loan will only be granted subject to the member getting a suitable guarantor. A guarantor signs the credit agreement in addition to the borrowing member. In doing so, he/she is promising to repay the outstanding loan balance in the event of a member defaulting on their loan repayments. The Credit Union requires that a guarantor proposal form must be completed and returned to the office for approval before a guaranteed loan can be issued. Before the loan is issued, the guarantor must visit the Credit Union Office in order that the implications of their signature on the credit agreement can be explained to them. A guarantor’s ability to repay may also be assessed.
It is the policy of this Credit Union that all loans are repaid as per the conditions of the promissory note. If you have any problems making your repayments you should contact the Credit Control Officers immediately as it may affect your ability to borrow in the future.
ICB Credit Check
It is a policy of Killarney Credit Union that all loans applications will be subject to a credit check with the Irish Credit Bureau (ICB).
Appeal against non approval of loan
The Credit Committee automatically considers any loan not granted by a loan officer. When the Credit Union rejects a loan application, the member is entitled to appeal that decision to the Appellate Body. If the member is not satisfied with the service provided please contact the credit union.
