Repayment ability depends on successful completion of the construction before the project can generate cash flow from the sale of the finished property, from rental or lease of the real estate, or from permanent take-out refinancing 

During the construction period, the collateral is literally work-in-progress and often the guarantors do not have sufficient outside net worth or income to pay off the loan

Session Highlights:

  • Learn how to evaluate the developer’s ability to repay the construction loan:

  • Developer’s background and expertise

  • Contractor’s background and expertise

  • Developer’s legal structure

  • Owner’s minimum equity,

  • Repayment ability from project cash flow, collateral, guarantee

  • Develop an appropriate underwriting of the construction project to ensure the resulting structure ensures the bank will be repaid in full, on time, and as agreed: 

  • Sources and uses, cost review of hard costs & soft costs, appraisal review 

  • LTV, LTC, DCR 

  • Interest reserves 

  • Bonding 

  • Explain how to satisfactorily monitor and manage credit exposure and construction activity: 

  • Role of and activities performed by real estate construction administration (RECAD) 

  • Inspections and disbursements

  • Reallocations and change orders

  •  Retention, punch lists, charge-backs 

  • Causes of and cures for construction problems 

  • Problem asset management of construction loans

Why You Should Attend:

This webinar addresses how to mitigate the higher risk, and it offers advice and guidance in how to extend construction loans safely and profitably with appropriate analysis and underwriting and structuring—LTV, LTC, minimum equity, bonding, etc. Once the construction loan is extended, it must be administered by real estate credit administration (RECAD), so the session also addresses the role and activities of real estate construction administration (RECAD)—sources & uses, costs review, inspections, disbursements, retention, liens, construction problem mitigation.
