- The SBA 7(a) has clearly defined loan property lien requirements. For loans over $350,000 the SBA requires that a lien be placed on available equity of the borrower’s personal real estate including residential and investment property.
- The SBA does not require lenders to collateralize a loan with personal property if the borrower has less than 25% equity of fair market value.
- For loans under $350,000 some banks still require a lien on personal property if there is more than 25% equity available.
- If you take a HELOC before you submit your financial package, and have less than 25% equity in your house or investment properties, then a lien will not be required. HELOCs typically offer interest only rates and the full balance from your mortgage and HELOC are deducted from cash flow.
- If your spouse owns 20% or more of the “Small Business Applicant” the SBA instructs lenders to consider taking jointly owned investment or residential property as collateral.
