SBA Debt Default FAQs
Is there a creditor committee in a Subchapter V?
Is there a creditor committee in a Subchapter V?

Creditors' committees commonly occur in traditional Chapter 11 cases, but they need a cause in Subchapter V cases.

Subchapter V trustees' primary function is to create a standard plan with the debtor and creditor. They do have the authority to audit the debtor's finances, but their primary purpose is mediation.

The reason for this is Congress sees impartial third-parties' increasing the likelihood of a sound resolution among the debtor and its creditors. Unbiased third parties are especially useful for small businesses whose creditors are tentative as a result of COVID.

Does Subchapter V help if I pledged my personal residence as collateral for a business loan?
Does Subchapter V help if I pledged my personal residence as collateral for a business loan?

If the principal debtor used his/her primary residence as security for a loan to fund the small business, there are available loan modifications.

If as part of your SBA loan, you pledged your primary residence as collateral, neither Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will likely help in the event of default.  However, Chapter 11 Subchapter V may help.

For instance, a small business debtor's plan may modify the rights of a holder of a claim secured by the principal residence of the debtor if the new value received in connection with the granting of the security interest was:

  • not used primarily to acquire the real property; and
  • used primarily in connection with the debtor's small business

Therefore, you could possibly use the Chapter 11 Subchapter V to save your house and modify the terms of repaying the loan if you pledged your house as collateral as part of your personal guarantee.  You will, more than likely, not rid yourself of the lien.  Preserving your home constitutes your goal with the new bankruptcy code.  If you have no other options, you should explore the new bankruptcy option.

How much does a Subchapter V cost?
How much does a Subchapter V cost?

Filing fees with the court may vary but as of the time of this writing the filing fees are $1,738.

Attorneys' fees will vary on the complexity of your case but will be in the $15,000 to $25,000 range in most cases.

Under a regular Chapter 11, attorneys' fees were usually a minimum of $50,000.

What is an SBA Loan Modification?
What is an SBA Loan Modification?

An SBA Loan Modification is a remedial option when the business is still a viable concern, is still generating revenue and due to current circumstances, the old loan terms just do not make financial sense for all parties. A loan modification package is generally presented when it involves a SBA 504 Loan and the collateral or building’s fair market value has decreased significantly such that the loan should probably be modified (i.e. principal and interest payment terms, modification of principal loan balance to reflect current fair market value appraisal of real estate collateral, payment schedule etc.). In this situation, special factors need to be evaluated, appraisals will need to be conducted, and a proposal should be made in order to apply for a loan modification which benefits both parties. Again, the borrower will be required to provide updated business and personal financial information, additional pledged collateral may be requested, and appraisals will be done as part of the modification process. This is not a situation where the borrower or guarantor should engage in this process without qualified representation or consultation. However, if the business feels that it doesn’t need assistance, we recommend that you review applicable SBA SOPs and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) prior to presenting your loan modification application.

When Should An SBA Offer in Compromise Be Pursued?
When Should An SBA Offer in Compromise Be Pursued?

When certain limited circumstances occur and a Borrower or Guarantor does not have the ability to make full payment, the SBA may allow a settlement for less than the full principal amount due on the federal debt. An SBA Offer in Compromise (OIC) is not possible without the cooperation of responsible Borrowers and Guarantors. One of the basic elements of an SBA OIC is that the business has ceased operations and all business assets have been liquidated. The business owner’s assistance and help in maximizing the recovery on the business assets will help to minimize the amount of deficiency balance on the loan. As in most scenarios involving debt forgiveness, there may be tax implications and small business owners should consult their tax and legal advisors before starting the SBA OIC process.
