Often times, SBA debtors who have signed personal guarantees associated with an SBA Loan Agreement think that simply filing for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the proverbial “golden ticket” to fix the SBA loan problems and get out of personal liability with an SBA loan default.  However, just because an SBA debtor files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy versus an SBA Offer in Compromise, does not mean that the debtor is “out of the woods.”

Banks and lenders try to find ways to create or maintain superior leverage even though an SBA debtor threatens to file for bankruptcy protection after an SBA loan default.  However, the story does not end with a mere electronic or paper filing.  Lenders and their attorneys do scrutinize the Chapter 7 petition pre-filing actions of SBA debtors to discover if distressed SBA debtors have improperly disposed of collateral, transferred property or other reachable assets through "quitclaim" or other suspicious "gift" transactions to family, friends or other third parties to keep them from their reaches.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy debtors, in their filings, are required to disclose to the United States Trustee all of their assets, liabilities, income, and any anticipated increase in income.  Any intentional failure to do so, can not only expose the SBA debtors to the adversarial complaint process and disqualify their discharge of certain debts, but can also also initiate possible referrals to the United States Department of Justice for criminal fraud and may even result in a filing of federal indictment with multiple counts of bankruptcy fraud for concealing and knowingly making false oaths and declarations.

Additionally, SBA debtors may have made misrepresentations in the origination of the SBA loan and during the servicing and work out stages with the Lender or SBA in their financial statements and written submissions to them. Lenders review these materials as part of their due diligence to protect their rights to collect on the SBA Guaranty and mitigate further damage to its and the SBA's recovery efforts.

In such instances, there may also be grounds by the Lenders (and even the SBA) to object to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge or otherwise contest the bankruptcy in its entirety when borrowers or SBA loan guarantors engage in any such malfeasance.  In these cases, adversarial proceedings in bankruptcy can be the forum through which lenders can resolve any guaranty affecting deficiencies contained within their files.

Dealing with the idea that you might be facing SBA loan default can be terrifying. The SBA attorneys in our office are skilled at helping clients understand all facets of their situations. If, for instance, you need to know what an SBA offer in compromise is, you can simply ask your lawyer. You should never face SBA loan problems alone. It is important to retain the services of an attorney who can help you through this difficult time in your life. We urge you to read about the services that we have available and to contact us if you believe that we can be of assistance to you right now.

Our Attorneys are Authorized by the Agency Practice Act to Represent Federal Debtors Nationwide before the SBA, The SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals, the Treasury Department, and the Bureau of Fiscal Service.



Clients borrowed and personally guaranteed an SBA 7a loan.  Clients defaulted on the SBA loan and were sued in federal district court for breach of contract.  The SBA lender demanded the Client pledge several personal real estate properties as collateral to reinstate and secure the defaulted SBA loan.  We were subsequently hired to intervene and aggressively defend the lawsuit.  After several months of litigation, our attorneys negotiated a reinstatement of the SBA loan and a structured workout that did not involve any liens against the Client's personal real estate holdings.



Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.



Clients personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan balance of over $300,000.  Clients also pledged their home as additional collateral.  SBA OIC accepted for $87,000 with full release of lien against home.
