Sun Tzu: Know Your Adversary - what SBA loan debtors can learn before negotiating with the SBA

The ancient Chinese warrior Sun Tzu taught his men to "know your adversary" before going into battle. For if "you know your adversary and know yourself," he wrote, "you need not fear the result of a hundred battles." But, Sun Tzu warned, "If you know yourself but not the adversary, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat."  

So, as part of our 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 common problems and simple solutions regarding SBA loans and bankruptcy with a lawyer who represents lenders and bankers with their SBA loan issues.

$750,000 SBA 504 LOAN - NEGOTIATED TERM REPAYMENT AGREEMENT

Clients personally guaranteed SBA 504 loan balance of $750,000.  Clients also pledged the business’s equipment/inventory and their home as additional collateral.  Clients had agreed to a voluntary sale of their home to pay down the balance.  We intervened and rejected the proposed home sale.  Instead, we negotiated an acceptable term repayment agreement and release of lien on the home.

$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.
