Steps For Reviewing The SBA Offer In Compromise

Local attorneys help business owners when they are facing a possible default on their loans. When defaulting, this indicates that the lender has the legal right to start the foreclosure process. This process allows them to take possession of the property used as collateral and sell it at auction. A SBA Offer in Compromise is an opportunity to prevent the lender from taking these steps.

The First Step After Notification

The small business owner receives a SBA demand letter once they have defaulted on their loan. The default indicates that the loan is at least ninety-days delinquent. It also allows the lender to acquire full payment of the loan. Once the borrower has acquired a SBA loan default, they should approach an attorney. The attorney could help them find a more reasonable solution instead of foreclosure.

Discussing the Possibilities with a Lender

The attorney discusses the possibilities with the lender. Together they determine the most fair and reasonable percentage to settle the loan default. This percentage could be as much as fifty percent of the total value required. By submitting this offer to the lender, the borrower could keep their business operating and reduce the financial impact of settling the debt.

The attorney prepares the documentation for the offer. They submit the documents to the lender. Upon acceptance, the lender provides the borrower with the correct documents for finalizing this process. Once the offer is accepted the SBA loan foreclosure stops.

However, if the property was used as collateral to secure the loan the lender may collect it as well. The attorney should review the terms of the settlement with the borrower to identify any clauses that affect ownership of the property. If possible, the attorney may negotiate a settlement that allows the business owner to keep the property based on how much equity they have accumulated.

Local attorneys could help small business owners avoid foreclosure through a settlement offer. This offer helps them to prevent major damage to the business owner's credit. It could also help the business owner avoid the requirement of paying the full outstanding balance of the loan. Business owners who need to acquire help with a default or need a Tax Offset Program should contact an attorney now.

$220,000 SBA 7A LOAN -DOT WAIVER OF ADMINISTRATIVE FEES & COSTS

Clients personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan that was referred to the Department of Treasury for collection.  Treasury claimed our clients owed over $220,000 once it added its statutory collection fees and interest.  We were able to negotiate a significant reduction of the total claimed amount from $220,000 to $119,000, saving the clients over $100,000 by arguing for a waiver of the statutory 28%-30% administrative fees and costs.

$350,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED STRUCTURED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

$350,000 SBA 7A LOAN - NEGOTIATED STRUCTURED WORKOUT AGREEMENT

Client personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan for $350,000. The small business failed but because of the personal guarantee liability, the client continued to pay the monthly principal & interest out-of-pocket draining his savings. Client hired a local attorney but quickly realized that he was not familiar with SBA-backed loans or their standard operating procedures. Our firm was subsequently hired after the client received the SBA's official 60-day notice. After back-and-forth negotiations, we were able to convince the SBA to reinstate the loan, retract the acceleration of the outstanding balance, modify the original terms, and approve a structured workout reducing the interest rate from 7.75% to 0% and extending the maturity date for a longer period to make the monthly payments affordable. In conclusion, not only we were able to help the client avoid litigation and bankruptcy, but we also save him approximately $227,945 over the term of the workout.
