Facing and SBA Loan Default? Bankruptcy is not the only option. Learn more about the SBA debt forgiveness.

SBA Loan Modification

Not all businesses run smoothly after start-up. In fact, at some point, many entrepreneurs run into trouble and cannot make the payments on their SBA loan. Lenders are not anxious to rewrite the terms of their loan, nor is the SBA. However, given the choice between a bad loan and a workout, lenders at larger institutions may find a workout plan and loan modification proposal preferable.

If you are facing an SBA loan default, the Perliski Law Group will use their best-efforts to negotiate a workout plan and loan modification with the SBA lender.

The process is not quick and requires a strong commitment from the borrower, but can be an effective solution if the lender is approached early enough.

Possible Modifications

  • Temporary/permanent reduction of interest.
  • Defer payments and/or principal only.
  • Extend Maturity Date to reduce payments.
  • Temporary Reduction of Payments.
  • Re-amortize loan payments

SBA Policy

Authorization and guidelines for an SBA loan modification may be found at: Standard Operation Procedure 50-50-4, Chapter 5, paragraphs 8(a), 15(a), 16(a), 17 as well as Chapter 7, Paragraphs 5(b) – 5(h).
