Assignment and Assumption of SBA 7(a) Loans - How Do They Work?Now imagine - you've been running a business with a guaranteed 7(a) loan from the Small Business Administration (SBA), and now it's time to hand over the reins. You might be wondering, can the loan be signed over to a new owner as part of a sale? And most importantly, what does the SBA have to say about that? Well, here's the thing - the answer isn't a straightforward 'yes' or 'no'. The SBA often needs to give an approving nod to the assignment, and several requirements must be fulfilled.
The Must-Haves for the New Loan HolderIn a nutshell, the SBA has set 14 primary guidelines that must be adhered to, as detailed below:
If these rules seem overwhelming, worry not! Expert insight can help navigate this intricate affair.
- The person looking to assume the loan - let's call them the assumptor - needs to meet the eligibility requirements for a 7(a) loan as stated in the latest version of the SBA’s standard operating procedures. This criterion may not apply if the assumption is part of a workout or if the loan is in the process of liquidation.
- The assumptor should ideally be the primary owner of the company.
- Comparing credentials, the assumptor should bring to the table similar or superior business acumen and managerial expertise as the previous borrower.
- A spotless credit history is a must for the assumptor.
- The assumptor should be able to repay the SBA loan in full.
- No item of collateral must be released during the process.
- No collateral should be considered subordinate, unless otherwise stated regarding funds used for maintaining or increasing its value.
- The business shouldn't experience any negative impacts due to the loan assignment.
- Ensuring the recovery value of collateral remains unaffected is another important consideration.
- If the current collateral doesn't fully secure the loan, more should be appended whenever possible.
- All existing borrowers shouldn't be released without SBA’s prior written consent.
- It's mandatory to have a signed written agreement outlining the terms of the assumption, with all involved parties being signatories.
- The assumption terms must incorporate a "due on sale or death" provision, thereby disallowing any future loan assignment.
- The deal must not include a real estate contract. This means the seller can't hold the property title until a stipulated amount is paid off.
