Fundamentals of SBA Lending: Documenting, Closing and Funding the SBA Loan

Webinar: ID# 1011726
Recorded CD
About This Course:
At one time SBA loans were considered loans of last resort because of the complexities and nuances of SBA requirements and closing process. As credit standards have tightened, government guaranteed loans have gained prominence whereby lenders appreciate the credit enhancements provided through SBA programs to provide to credit facilities as well as fee income earned on SBA loans sold in the secondary marketplace. While these programs are readily available and encouraged by the SBA, they can be complicated for lenders.

The live audio conference will walk you through the details you need to know to prepare successful SBA loans. If a SBA loan is not properly documented, closed and serviced, it could lead to a partial or full denial of the guaranty in the event of a default with respect to a 7(a) loan or result in the failure of lenders interim loan to be refinanced with a 504 loan debenture.

You will learn who's eligible for loans, the different programs available (Standard 7(a) Loan Processing, Certified Lender Program), Preferred Lender Programs, 504 Loan Program, how the process works, what you need to document, and how to avoid common pitfalls.
