Chris Hurn has written an interesting piece on huffingtonpost.com predicting bad times ahead for the SBA 7(a) loan program. Read the full article here

Hurn notes "You don't have to be a banking-school trained lender to understand the common sense rule of 'having skin in the game.' Get a real equity contribution from a small businessperson on their loan, and you can sleep better at night knowing your default risk has been mitigated some. Give them a pass because they spent more time in some ivory tower than you did, and don't be surprised if they walk away from your loan when the going gets tough."

Based on our firm's experience, Hurn's observations are not quite accurate. First and foremost, the reason this law firm exists is to primarily help people who signed a personal guarantee in support of their SBA backed loan. This means that as a personal guarantor, your wages, your Social Security, your tax returns and possibly your real estate is at risk if your small business defaults on its SBA loan. So in just about every case there is some "skin in the game". Secondly, most if not all small business owners go over and above to try to keep their businesses going including investing life savings and borrowing from family. Most borrowers aren't quick to give up the ship considering what they have invested and that the small business is their livelihood.

$505,000 SBA 7(A) LOAN - FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT LITIGATION (CALIFORNIA)

$505,000 SBA 7(A) LOAN - FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT LITIGATION (CALIFORNIA)

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.

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

$1,200,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

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.

$488,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

$488,000 SBA 7A LOAN - SBA OHA LITIGATION

Clients personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan.  The SBA referred the debt to the Department of Treasury, which was seeking payment of $487,981 from our clients.  We initially filed a Cross-Servicing Dispute, which was denied.  As a result, we filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals asserting legal defenses and supporting evidence uncovered during the discovery and investigation phase of our services.  Ultimately, the SBA settled the debt for $25,000 - saving our clients approximately $462,981.
