UK Accounting Glossary
A cross-default clause is common stipulation under loan agreements in which a bank has a right to deny access to balances in any or all loan accounts to a borrower (with several loans at the same bank) even if only one loan goes into default. In fact, a bank can apply all available balance(s) in all account(s) of the borrower to satisfy any loan in default. Bankers justify this clause on the logic that a default sours the bank client relationship, not a just a loan agreement.
