condition subsequent
England, Wales
In a loan agreement, a condition that must be satisfied by the borrower within a set time period following drawdown.
Where a borrower does not satisfy a condition precedent in time for drawdown, the lender may agree to lend the money as long as the borrower agrees to satisfy the condition by a future date. Usually, a letter (in the form of a condition subsequent or waiver letter) is signed by the parties before drawdown setting out details of the outstanding condition and the date by which the borrower should satisfy it.
Failure to fulfil the condition within the set time period will usually trigger an event of default.
