GENERAL PROVISIONSLoans are Real Contracts – Require DELIVERY for perfection. But anaccepted promise to deliver is binding, although there is no contract of loanuntil thing is delivered. There is no required form – only that stipulation for INTEREST must be in WRITING.Loans are unilateral contracts once the SM is delivered, it createsobligations on the part only of the borrower.2 kinds of Contracts of Loan – Commodatum and Mutuum / Simple Loan.CREDIT v LOAN v DEBTCredit – ability of an individual to borrow.Loan – delivery and receipt of money or consumable thing with agreementto repay same amount of same kind and quality.Debt – credit considered from creditor’s standpoint.COMMODATUM v MUTUUM / SIMPLE LOAN
CommodatumMutuum / Simple Loan
Is gratuitous.Any stipulation for compensation,contract ceases to becommodatum.Default rule is that simple loan isGratuitous. But there may also be astipulation for interest – remember that this must be in writing.Generally involves non-consumablethings [because you have to returnit]. But consumable things may besubject of commodatum – when thepurpose is not to consume it, butonly to display it.SM is money or other consumablethingBailor retains ownership of the SM.Ownership passes to borrower.Borrower has obligation to returnthe same thing loaned – the actualthing.Borrower need only pay the sameamount of the same kind & quality.Payment only of the equivalent.Real or personal property may besubject of commodatum.Involves only personal property.Purpose is only for temporary useor possession.The purpose of the contract is toconsume the thing.
