This letter may be friendly or formal, but should state the details of the transaction, including the amount, the interest to be paid, and the repayment requirements. Remember that the law treats consumer and commercial credit differently. Make sure any credit approval complies with applicable state and federal laws. Consumer credit, in particular, requires a variety of disclosures that are beyond the scope of this program. In cases where such disclosures are required, the letter you write would be only a cover letter discussing the general terms of the loan and referring to attached disclosure forms.
1 Inform the reader that the loan has been approved.
2 Discuss repayment terms.
3 Offer assistance or a friendly comment, if you wish.
