As part of our continuing objective to try and even out the playing field – or, battleground for those with an SBA loan default and need some background information, we will be posting videos, articles and commentary on some of the tactics and strategic mental impressions that lenders (and their lawyers), the CDC, the SBA and the DOT consider when dealing with an SBA loan default so that you can “know your adversary.”
Hopefully, by “knowing your SBA adversary,” small business borrowers, obligors and SBA personal guarantors can gain some leverage when dealing with an SBA loan default.
In this video clip, the Coleman Report representative discusses with a lawyer who represents lenders and bankers with their SBA loan issues regarding lender liability during the SBA Offer in Compromise process.

Client personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan for $150,000. COVID-19 caused the business to fail, and the loan went into default with a balance of $133,000. Client initially hired a non-attorney consultant to negotiate an OIC. The SBA summarily rejected the ineligible OIC and the debt was referred to Treasury’sBureau of Fiscal Service for enforced collection in the debt amount of $195,000. We were hired to intervene and initiated discovery for SBA and Fiscal Service records. We were able to recall the case from Fiscal Service back to the SBA. We then negotiated a structured workout with favorable terms that saves the client approximately $198,000 over the agreed-upon workout term by waiving contractual and statutory administrative fees, collection costs, penalties, and interest.
