When a borrower is prepared for the worst, there is more of a chance of avoiding commercial mortgages pitfalls. A successful plan for when things could go wrong, can be beneficial to many borrowers.
It is important to know that not all lenders and brokers are fully prepared for all of the different financial issues that you and your business could face. This is why it is crucial for borrowers to be aware and prepared for any potential financial issues that they could be faced with then it comes to commercial mortgages. It is best to rely on yourself than your lender or broker.
Sourcing is one of the most common commercial mortgages mishaps that should be avoided at all costs. This happens when a documentation of the down payment source for the purchase is required by the lender. They can also require the verification of the funds for the payment. This is called seasoning, which could take a long time, up to a whole year.
Recall terms are another problem that borrowers could face with commercial mortgages. These recall terms could allow the lender to collect payment from the borrower before the due date. Usually, these recall terms must be present in the loan agreement for this to happen.
There are some differences to recall terms when it comes to commercial mortgages and business loan agreements
Commercial lenders often times will include recall terms in the business loan agreement. However, if terms are not specifically notes in the agreement, there is a chance that you could be forced to repay the payment sooner than expected and on short notice. This is another reason it is important to work with a trusting lender that communicates with you effectively and outlines the terms clearly.
Keep in mind that not all lenders utilize recall terms when it comes to commercial mortgages
To avoid having to deal with recall terms at all, you can find lenders who do not use them. It is beneficial for both parties to try to come up with a plan and refinance with a borrower before having to mess with recall terms. But since agreeing on refinancing terms is not always a luxury that you may have, try to find a lender that doesn’t deal with recall terms or be prepared so that you do not have to worry about this issue.
