Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator

Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator

When you are considering keeping an inherited home from a parent and need to borrow money to buyout siblings or beneficiaries, it is important to make sure that it makes financial sense to do so. To assist you in doing so, we created the Commercial Loan Corporation Trust & Estate Loan Benefit Calculator.

Our trust and estate loan benefit calculator will help you quickly and easily determine if it makes sense to apply for a Proposition 58 exclusion from reassessment and take out a trust or estate loan. The loan benefit calculator compares your property tax savings to your estimated loan expenses and determines approximately how long it will take to recover those costs.  If you plan on keeping the home longer than it will take to recoup the fees, then the loan is of benefit; if not then it would make more sense to not conduct the loan.

So watch this short video on our Trust & Estate loan benefit calculator and then try the calculator yourself at https://cloanc.com/nprd-calculator/

We have worked with Michael Wyatt’s Property Tax Consulting Firm on several occasions and highly recommend him.

Terms for Trusts & Estates

Dealing with Trusts and Estates can be a complicated matter. It can go from complex to incomprehensible if you do not understand the terminology. To help you better understand, we have compiled a list of some of the most common terms used in trust and estate matters to assist you. If you need any additional clarification, we are here to assist you.  Please call us at 877-464-1066 for any needs you may have.

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.

If you require a third party bridge loan to take advantage of the benefits of proposition 58, please call us at 877-464-1066 so that we may assist you.

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.

Provider Of California Estate Loans

Thanks to California Proposition 58, a parent is permitted to transfer their low property tax rate to a child on an inherited piece of real estate. Unfortunately, in some situations receiving an exclusion from property tax reassessment can be easier said than done. Specific steps must be taken to receive your exclusion from your local County Tax Assessors Office and if they are not done correctly, you may lose your ability to preserve your parents low property tax rate. Commercial Loan Corporation specializes in providing loans to estates and trusts. These specialty private money mortgages assist our clients in qualifying for the Prop 58 property tax exclusion from reassessment. In addition to providing third party private money trust and estate mortgages, we can also put you in contact with a qualified estate attorney, probate attorney, fiduciary or California property tax consultant to assist you in qualifying for your Proposition 58 benefits.If you need an estate or trust loan, or have questions, please call us at 877-464-1066 or complete our information request form located here.

Proposition 58 Exclusion From Property Tax Reassessment

In 1986 California enacted Proposition 58. Proposition 58 allows for an inheriting property owner to avoid a property tax reassessment when acquiring real estate from their parents. The inheriting owner’s property taxes are calculated on the established Proposition 13 factored value, instead of the current market value, saving them potentially thousands of dollars annually. This is especially important if one of the children inheriting the property wants to either keep the home as a residence or as an investment property. If the parent has owned the home for an extended period of time, there is a high probability that Prop 13 has kept their property tax rate much lower than it would be if the property was reassessed at current market value.

Under Proposition 58, retaining a parents low property tax rate can become complicated when there is not enough liquid assets in the trust or estate to create an equal distribution to all siblings. In this situation a third party loan placed against the inherited home may be the only option to make an equal distribution. The additional cash made available from our 3rd party loan allows each of the siblings to receive an equal share of the assets. If the third party loan is not handled properly, the County Assessors Office may reject your request for a Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment and the property taxes will be calculated on the homes current assessed value. If you, one of your siblings or a client of yours is in need of a third party loan to take advantage of California Proposition 58’s exclusion from property tax reassessment, call Us at 877-464-1066.  We specialize in providing private money loans to trusts and estates and can assist you.

Why Choose Commercial Loan Corporation?

Commercial Loan Corporation, A California Proposition 58 Lender

Why Commercial Loan Corporation

There are several things that separate Commercial Loan Corporation from other California private money lenders. Perhaps most important is that Commercial Loan Corporation specializes in loans to trusts with the specific goal of retaining the original prop 13 tax status. There are a few lenders that consider these transactions occasionally but these loans are a small percentage of what they do. It is critically important that this transaction is done correctly to ensure that the county doesn’t reassess the property. There are a lot of mistakes that can be made if it’s not done correctly. We work directly with both the customer and the attorney to assist in this process. We have adjusted our documents with the help of numerous attorneys to provide a seamless transition when the property is distributed from the trust to the individual taking the property in the distribution from the trust. We understand the process better than most, because it’s all we focus on. And we are the lender so we make all of the decisions ourselves. You are right at the source.

Another very important thing that separates us from anyone out there is our policy on early payment. You will find that other private money lenders want to make as much interest as possible off of the transaction. This is not a bad thing. Companies are in business to make a profit. However, our policy on prepayment penalties helps us stand apart from other lenders. Most lenders, in addition to their loan costs, require a pre-payment penalty of some sort. This can be a standard 6 month or 1 year early payoff penalty or in some cases can be a specific number of months of required interest. If a lender requires that you make 3 or 6 payments of interest on a loan prior to being paid off, it is the same thing as a prepayment penalty. A requirement for certain number on month’s interest guarantees a lender that the loan will be more profitable. If a borrower is required to make a specific number of interest payments, it adds to the cost of the loan. For example, if a borrower is required to make 90 days of payments on a loan, it is the equivalent of adding 2 to 3 percent of the loan amount in loan costs.

Commercial Loan Corporation has no prepayment penalties of any kind. None. This can be extremely beneficial to the customer financially. If the money to pay the loan back is readily available we have worked with customers that pay off our loan immediately eliminating virtually any interest costs on the loan. This means that the initial fees charged for the loan is the entire cost of the loan.

Here is an example…

Say the customer has a personal line of credit available to pay off our loan from their lending institution. We can work with them to determine the best timing to fund our loan depending on the availability of their funds. If we fund our loan on Monday, they can pay off our loan on Tuesday, effectively eliminating the accrual of interest. This can be a great tool to potentially save thousands of dollars in interest payments.

We also work with the attorney and the customer to decide when to file the re-conveyance showing that the loan has been paid off. Some of the attorneys we work with want to wait to file the reconveyence (proof the loan is paid off) until they are satisfied that the county has concluded the Exemption for Reassessment of property taxes. We can accommodate the preference of the attorney in the timing of filing the reconveyence.

Don’t let any of this confuse you, we are here to answer any questions you have on the subject and look forward to helping! We tend to do business the old-fashioned way. We do what we say we’re going to do and we focus on speed and customer service.

Always Watch Out For Prepayment Penalties

Trust and Estate Loans - Beware of Prepayment Penalties

Trust and Estate Loans – Beware of Prepayment Penalties

Trust and estate mortgages provide liquidity to an otherwise illiquid trust. This cash infusion to the trust or estate allows for an even asset distributions to be made. The equal distribution of a trust or estate becomes critical when one of the beneficiaries or heirs wants to take advantage of California Proposition 58 (parent to child property transfer) and benefit from an exclusion for property tax reassessment. Depending on the property’s current value, the parents assessed property tax value and the property tax rate; doing so could mean a savings of thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars annually! Here is an example of how it works.

Proposition 58 Exclusion From Property Tax Reassessment Example

Say your parent initially purchased the home for $75,000 and over the years the home has increased in value to $850,000. Thanks to California’s Proposition 13, the property’s tax assessed value can not increase by more than 2% annually. So even though the actual value of the property is $850,000 the County’s assessed value for property tax purposes may be only $112,000 (as an example). If the property tax rate for the area is 1.2% here is what you would be looking at:

Current Property Taxes = $112,000 x 1.2% = $1,344
Property Taxes If Reassessed = $850,000 x 1.2% = $10,200
Proposition 58 Exclusion From Reassessment Annual Tax Savings = $8,856

So if an equal distribution of the trust or estate can be made allowing for the child inheriting the property to qualify for the Proposition 58 exclusion from property tax reassessment, the savings in property taxes can be significant!

Finding the right Trust or Estate Loan

When it comes time to take out a trust, estate or probate loan, you have a few options and choosing the right private money or hard money lender may save you potentially thousands of dollars in fees and expenses! In almost all cases, Trust and Estate loans are intended to be short term financing options. The lender provides the trust or estate with cash, the assets of the trust or estate are distributed equally, and the beneficiary or heir files for the parent to child exclusion from property tax reassessment. Once the exclusion is granted, they are then able to refinance the trust or estate loan with out jeopardizing the low property tax rate that was transferred from the parent. Since these are short term loans, many of our competitors have chosen to charge prepayment penalties to make additional income on the loan. Worse yet, some trust and estate lenders will disguise their prepayment penalty by referring to them as minimum required months payments or set a minimum amount of interest requirement. Depending on the loan amount, those prepaid or required interest charges could add up to several thousand dollars. Commercial Loan Corporation charges NO prepayment penalties and has NO minimum interest requirements. Instead we do our best to provide you with flexibility when it comes to paying off your loan. In fact we will even recalculate your monthly payment for you if you pay down your trust or estate loan mortgage balance, allowing you to save on interest payments!
