Collateral / Interest Rates / Terms / Loan Fees
The lender will have a 1st lien on the project property/equipment and SBA will have a 2nd lien on the project property/equipment.
Interest rates for the SBA 504 loan are fixed for the life of the loan.
SBA 504 loans are for either 10 or 20 years. If a 20-year loan, the lender must have at least a 10-year term. If a 10-year loan, the lender must have at least a 7-year term.
There are one-time upfront loan fees, currently about 2% of the SBA loan amount, which are financed.
There is a one-time Third Party Lender fee, which is 0.5% of the Third Party Lender loan. This fee compensates SBA for the senior lender’s lien advantage. This fee may be passed onto the Borrower but may not be financed.
There are on-going servicing fees included in the total monthly payment amount of the SBA 504 Loan, currently about 1.5% of the SBA loan amount. These fees are part of the overall effective interest rates and recalculated every 5 years based on the outstanding principal balance.
