Protecting the SBA guarantee is critical to lenders and borrowers alike. But the rules are shifting to modernize the 7(a) loan program. This presentation will acquaint you with the changes… before more come down the pike.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand recent proposed SBA rules and new SOP guidance
  • Identify the key eligibility issues in underwriting an SBA loan
  • Correct common closing and funding mistakes that impair a lender’s guaranty
  • Ensure your liquidation procedures are aligned with SBA guidelines
  • Review the fundamentals of a guaranty purchase package

New rules are being adopted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to streamline and increase access to capital for small businesses. While modernizing the 7(a) loan program is a welcome change, implementation of the new rules may initially create some uncertainty for lenders. This webinar will address the updates and how they will impact underwriting and documenting 7(a) loans. It will identify critical points to preserving and protecting the SBA’s conditional loan guaranty in a shifting credit market. Lenders’ responsibilities for servicing their existing SBA loan portfolio will be reinforced and tips for confidently navigating the SBA loan guaranty purchase process will be provided.
