Irrevocable Trust Loans

Lending to an Irrevocable Trust

Lending to an Irrevocable Trust

Commercial Loan Corporation is one of only a few California lenders that will lend directly to an irrevocable trust. So what is an irrevocable trust?

An irrevocable trust is a type of trust where its terms cannot be modified, amended or terminated under most conditions. Often times, an irrevocable trust will begin as a living trust and once the grantor passes, will turn into an irrevocable trust. An irrevocable trust designates a trustee and beneficiary(s). The trustee is the person who manages the trust and may also be one of the beneficiaries. An irrevocable trust is commonly used to pass assets to heirs while avoiding probate. When you transfer your assets into an irrevocable trust, you relinquish control of those assets. The trust becomes the owner of the assets at that point.

The reason why most lenders will not lend directly to an irrevocable trust is because the trust is the owner of the assets, as opposed to an individual. This become important when a child is inheriting a home from a parent and would like to use Prop 58, or Prop 19 to keep a parents low property tax base. The California Board of Equalization requires and equal distribution of assets be made when multiple beneficiaries are involved unless specific conditions are met. If there are not sufficient cash assets in the trust to make an equal distribution, then a loan against real estate in the trust will be needed to qualify for the parent to child transfer to avoid property tax reassessment.

That is where Commercial Loan Corporation comes into play. We specialize in lending to trusts and estates; specifically irrevocable trusts.  Our trust loans, allow one child to keep an inherited home with the parents low Prop 13 tax base in tact, while the other child beneficiaries receive an equal portion of cash. Everybody wins! By avoiding expensive realtor fees, each beneficiary on average receives and additional $15,000 in inheritance and the child keeping the family home saves on average $6,200 per year in property taxes.

If you, a family member or a client may be able to benefit from a trust loan, we are here to assist you and answer any questions you might have.  Please call us at 877-464-1066.

California Proposition 13 & Proposition 58

California Proposition 58 and Proposition 13

California Proposition 58 and Proposition 13

Recently there has been debate in California if Proposition 13 and Proposition 58 still make sense. Without hesitation, the answer is yes. In June of 1978, California voters passed Proposition 13 with 65% of the total vote. Still, to this day, interestingly enough, 65% of “likely voters” in California still support the Proposition 13 this tax relief initiative.

California Prop 13 stabilized property taxes for Californians and gave a great incentive that encouraged Californian’s to become homeowners. The Proposition 13 tax break made property tax increases more affordable by limiting them to a maximum of 2% annually. Californians are fortunate enough to still be benefiting from this same formula 42 years later.

Proposition 58 works in conjunction with Proposition 13. Prop 58 allows a parent to transfer their Proposition 13 protected property tax base to a child. This is especially important when a child inherits a home from a parent. Prop 58 allows the child to inherit the home without having the property taxes reassessed, saving potentially thousands of dollars annually. This can make a home that may otherwise be unaffordable for the child, now affordable.

California Proposition 13 – People’s Initiative to Limit Property Taxation

California Proposition 13 Property Tax Information

About California Proposition 13 Property Tax Information

About Proposition 13

California Proposition 13, also known as the People’s Initiative to Limit Property Taxation was an amendment of the Constitution of California enacted in 1978. California Proposition 13 made it so that the maximum amount of any tax on real estate shall not exceed one percent of the full cash value of such property and additionally restricted annual increases of assessed value of real estate to an inflation factor, not to exceed 2% per year.

Proposition 13 also prohibited reassessment of a new base year value except in cases of change in ownership, or completion of new construction. Later, in 1986 Californian’s passed Proposition 58 which also excludes from reassessment transfers of real property between parents and children, with certain limitations.

Commercial Loan Corporation specializes in helping clients who inherit properties qualify for Proposition 58 and avoid property tax reassessment when a third party loan is needed to equalize the distribution of a trust or estate. This allows you to keep a parents low Prop 13 tax base and save potentially thousands of dollars a year in property taxes. In fact, our average client saves over $6,000 a year in property taxes.

If you are inheriting home from a parent and are interested in keeping their Proposition 13 tax base, please call us at 877-464-1066.

Common Terms For Trusts And Estates

Appointer  – The appointer is the person who can appoint a new trustee or remove an existing one.

Appointment – The act of appointing, giving an asset from the trust to a beneficiary; or the name of the document which gives effect to the appointment. The trustee’s right to do this, where it exists, is called a power of appointment. Sometimes, a power of appointment is given to someone other than the trustee, such as the settlor, the protector, or a beneficiary.

Beneficiary – A beneficiary is anyone who receives benefits from any assets held by the trust.

Bridge Loan – A bridge loan is short term financing that is typically paid back or refinanced. Often times the term on a bridge loan can range from 3 to 12 months.

Estate Planning – The process of arranging ones property and affairs to insure their disbursement in the most effective way possible.

Power of Attorney – A power of attorney is a legal instrument that empowers another person as agent to deal with one’s property and affairs.

Executor – The one nominated in a Will and or appointed by Probate Court to manage and distribute a decedent’s estate in accordance with the terms of the Will.

Fiduciary – A fiduciary is a person to whom property or power is entrusted for the benefit of another.

Proposition 13 – California Proposition 13 is a constitutional amendment enacted in 1978. The Proposition 13 Amendment limits the tax rate increase that can be charged annually on real estate in California. The proposition restricts the annual increases of assessed value of real property to an inflation factor, not to exceed 2% per year. California Proposition 13 also prohibits reassessment of a new real estate property tax base year value except for in cases of either change in ownership, or completion of new construction.

Proposition 58 – California Proposition 58 allows for the exclusion for reassessment of property taxes on transfers between parents and children. If the sale or transfer of real property is between a parent and their child, under limited circumstances, the property will not be reassessed if certain conditions are met and the proper application is filed in a appropriate amount of time. Proposition 58 allows the new property owner to avoid property tax increases when acquiring property from their parents. The new owner’s taxes are instead calculated on the established Proposition 13 factored base year value, instead of the current market value when the property is acquired from the parent.

Protector – A protector may be appointed in an express, inter vivos trust, as a person who has some control over the trustee usually including a power to dismiss the trustee and appoint another.

Settlor – This is the person or persons who creates the trust. They may also be known as a Grantor.

Trust – A trust is an arrangement in which ownership of assets is transferred to a Trustee, who thereafter has a fiduciary duty to distribute the trusts assets to the beneficiaries of the Trust.

Trust Deed – A trust deed is a legal document that defines the trust such as the trustee, beneficiaries, settlor and appointer, and the terms and conditions of the agreement.

Trust Distributions – A trust distribution is any income or asset that is given out to the beneficiaries of the trust.

Trustee – A person, corporation who administers a trust. A trustee is considered a fiduciary and owes the highest duty under the law to protect trust assets from unreasonable loss for the trust’s beneficiaries.

California Bridge Loan Financing To Trusts & Estates

Commercial Loan Corporation specializes in providing bridge loans to trusts and estates. We are one of just a handful of lenders in California that provide bridge financing to trusts. Even more importantly, we specialize in this type of lending. Often times our clients utilize our private money bridge loan financing to allow for an even distribution to be made from a trust or estate. This can be crucial when a client is trying to receive a Proposition 58 granted exclusion from property tax reassessment to preserve a parents low property tax base on inherited property.

Thanks to California Proposition 13, property taxes in California can not increase by more than 2% each year. Since property values in California historically increase at a far higher rate, retaining a parents low property tax base can be incredibly valuable. In fact, on average we save our clients $6,200 a year in property taxes by helping them avoid a property tax reassessment. Over time that savings can compound, making for an incredible benefit. If you are inheriting property from a parent and are interested in preserving their low Proposition 13 property tax base, call us at 877-464-1066 and we can help you determine how much you might be able to save by utilizing one of our bridge loans.

What Is A Bridge Loan?

A bridge loan or bridge financing is a short term loan utilized until a person or trust secures permanent financing. Bridge loans or bridge mortgages are only intended to be held for a short period of time and typically have a term between 1 and 12 months.

Many of our clients either pay our bridge loan off in full after their exclusion from property tax reassessment has been granted or will refinance the debt with a conventional mortgage once the Proposition 58 exclusion has been granted. We are also able to assist our clients with permanent financing if needed. If you, a family member or client is interest in receiving a bridge loan for a trust or estate, please call us at 877-464-1066 so that we may assist you.
