Commercial Construction Loans: Administering and Monitoring - (3 Parts) - Sp18



Time: 9:30 am EST


The 2008-2009 downturn in commercial real estate (CRE) has exposed many weaknesses in bank construction lending practices. This was due, in part, to community banks attempting to utilize versions of their residential forms and policies to administer commercial construction loans. Such an approach generally does not adequately control the situation due to the key differences between residential and commercial. This program covers the important steps involved in effectively administering commercial construction loans, including typical forms and common errors to avoid.


Specific topics to be covered during this seminar include:

  •  Differences between residential and commercial construction loans
  •  Various types of commercial construction situations
  • Issues with construction contracts, budgets and the interest reserve
  • Four items that determine how you handle a specific loan
    • The loan approval and related conditions or contingencies
    • The commitment letter written to the customer
    • Your bank’s policies and procedures
    • The construction loan agreement
  • Other documentation: Surveys, title insurance and bonding
  • Funding controls: Inspections, lien waivers and disbursement methods
  • Completion of the project and stabilization (if applicable)
  • Special issues with owner-occupied loans
  • Four ways to tailor your construction (and other) policies to your actual or planned portfolio
