*Timing depends on the readiness of the borrower, the complexity of the project, and can vary significantly
An appraisal and environmental review are required by the SBA and partnering lender. They will be ordered on behalf of the business and will be submitted to the SBA for approval, along with your application package.
Loan application will be submitted electronically by BLP to SBA once all remaining documentation is collected, signed, and dated by the loan applicant. The SBA generally takes 5-7 days to approve or decline an application once it is received.
Applications will undergo a background check by the SBA. In cases where the review identifies any irregularities, there could be delays.
SBA will issue its Loan Authorization upon approval which outlines the terms and conditions of the SBA financing. BLP and partnering lender will prepare the loan documents to send to escrow officer to schedule a time to sign the final document and close escrow.
After the completed loan application receives SBA approval and escrow is closed, loan becomes part of the regular monthly debenture sale. When that is completed, you will be notified of your final below-market loan rate.
