Property Tax Transfer Interview

California Trust Loans

California Trust Loans

Here is a recent interview with Kenneth McNabb (Commercial Loan Corporation Trust & Estate Loan Account Executive) and PropertyTaxTransferTrusts.com. In the interview Ken discusses how Commercial Loan Corporation assists clients with Proposition 58 by using a Trust Loan to infuse a Trust with the funds needed to make an equal distribution and qualify.

Property Tax Transfer: Hello Ken, how do you disseminate the information you want to get across to prospects and new clients? In order to address financial issues that beneficiaries need to know, to resolve what are often complex financial concerns?

Kenneth McNabb:  I tend to give general information at first and provide our clients a solid overview. I then determine exactly how urgent the the financial issues are.

Property Tax Transfer: What do you do with a family that appears to be at an impasse, for example cannot agree on the value of an inherited home?

Kenneth McNabb:  When no one in a group of siblings can agree on what the value of a home should be I typically suggest we create a Cost Benefit Analysis and have an appraisal done. The appraisal is conducted by an independent third party and will show the true value of the home in question. Plus I make sure I know who wants to sell an inherited property, and who wants to keep the property. Typically everyone wants that low property tax base to remain intact. Usually at the root of the issue is that some beneficiaries do not realize that they can actually save a considerable amount of money by taking out a trust loan and having a sibling keep a home as opposed to selling it and having to pay realtor fees, closing costs and the repair costs. Selling an inherited home can be quite expensive. In fact we save our clients on average more than $40,000 when compared to selling a home. That does not include an average annual tax savings of over $6,200 by taking advantage of California Proposition 58! One other benefit is that a trust loan takes far less time that it takes to sell a property; so everyone receives their funds much more quickly.

Property Tax Transfer: When in the estate or inheritance timeline do these siblings tend to contact you, contact the firm you work for?

Kenneth McNabb: Some are urgent to get the money right away to buyout siblings…. Some even call us before anyone even passes away! Sometimes it’s a week after the death of a parent… Sometimes it’s a year after someone passes away.

Property Tax Transfer: And the next most important thing?

Kenneth McNabb: Well, I suppose that would be – what it means to inherit property from a parent. As maybe a once-in-a-lifetime, singular event.

Property Tax Transfer: Yes, it’s definitely a profound event. Tell me, who do you primarily deal with in your average family group? Typically.

Kenneth McNabb: Not counting the exceptions… Typically, I’m generally dealing with “the captain of the team”. The trust administrator, the person who wants to retain the parents home or oldest sibling. On occasion one of the siblings in an attorney and I will deal with them.

Property Tax Transfer: What does that person, that spokesperson, typically want, most of all?

Kenneth McNabb: I’d have to say that they want to keep the low CA Proposition 13 property tax base. Plus be able to buyout the sibling or siblings who want to sell their shares in that property.

Property Tax Transfer: What about Proposition 58, getting approved, and how it all works in conjunction with a trust loan, besides securing a low CA Proposition 13 property tax base… How do you explain all that? As I see it, this is the key to success in this business. If they don’t “get it” the first time around, they usually just walk away, don’t they? People often push away what they think they can’t understand.

Kenneth McNabb: My job is to make sure they understand this process within the first 30 seconds of the conversation! I keep everything as simple as possible. I explain Proposition 58 and securing a low CA Proposition 13 property tax base in very simple terms. I Let them know, in plain English, without a lot of confusing technical jargon, how an exclusion functions for the property – from parent to child… I ask them “Would you rather pay property taxes based on the day their parents’ bought the property… Or get hit with a super high current tax base, and pay what would be reassessed now, today…” I suppose you can guess what their choice generally is.

Property Tax Transfer: Right. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out!  Everyone wants that low CA Proposition 13 property tax base. Now, although you’re dealing with more or less non-conventional lending issues… How do you deal with non-conventional loan requirements? Where approval is concerned – along the pathway towards final approval for these folks.

Kenneth McNabb: Since we are lending to the trust and not to an individual in most situations, the loan process is very fast and easy.  In fact, we can often close a loan in as little as a week; providing we have received all of the required paperwork.

Property Tax Transfer: What is the Continuing Legal Education all about? Is that for Trust & Estate attorneys only?

Kenneth McNabb: Commercial Loan Corporation specializes in providing loans to irrevocable trusts to help our clients utilize Proposition 58 and keep a parents low Prop 13 property tax base. After doing this for so long, we have become very knowledgeable on California Proposition 58 matters. We partnered with Michael Wyatt, a California Property Tax Consultant that worked in a California Assessors office for over 15 years and together created an authorized Continuing Legal Education course that Attorney’s may take to meet their California continuing legal education requirements.

Property Tax Transfer: Thank you for taking the time to speak with us Ken. If one of our readers needs assistance with California Proposition 58 or has questions about a loan to an irrevocable trust, how may they reach you?

Kenneth McNabb: They can either call us at 877-464-1066 or inquire right on our website.  We are always happy to answer any questions that they are their Attorney may have on the trust or estate loan process.  We can also provide a Free benefit analysis which shows how much each beneficiary will save by using a trust loan to keep a home as opposed to selling it.

Irrevocable Trust Loans

Loans to Irrevocable Trusts

When it comes time to distribute the assets of an irrevocable trust, a trust loan may be needed if an equal distribution is required or desired. A trust loan provides the trust with liquidity; supplying cash so that assets do not need to be sold off or converted to cash. The trust loan is a mortgage placed against a piece of real estate held in the trust. Unlike a traditional mortgage, a trust mortgage loan is typically a short term loan. Once the assets of the trust are distributed, the beneficiary who inherited the real estate with the trust mortgage placed on it would refinance the trust mortgage with a conventional mortgage or payoff the mortgage.

Why Is An Equal Distribution Important?

When it comes to a trust distribution, an equal distribution can be important for a variety of reasons. Often times there is language in the trust that requires an equal distribution of the assets in the trust be made to beneficiaries. If the trust only contained cash, it would be easy to accomplish this. Unfortunately, most trusts that contain real estate do not have cash or other assets sufficient to create an equal distribution. In this situation, either the real estate must be sold or a mortgage must be taken out on the real estate to infuse the trust with cash. A trust loan is almost always the least expensive of the two options. Sometimes, more importantly, it also allows a beneficiary to keep a family home in the family.

Another important reason for the equal distribution of a trust is to meet the requirements of California Proposition 58. Prop 58 allows a child who is inheriting a home from a parent to avoid property tax reassessment on that home. This passes the low proposition 13 protected tax base from a parent to a child. Often times when the home is held in a trust, an equal distribution is required if a Proposition 58 exclusion from reassessment is to be granted by the County Tax Assessors office. In fact, the majority of trust loans that we provide are specifically for this reason. Our clients save on average over six thousand dollars per year in property tax savings by avoiding reassessment.

Do All Lenders Loan To Irrevocable Trusts?

No, in fact very few lenders are willing to lend to a trust, let alone an irrevocable trust. Typically when a home is held in a trust, a conventional lender will require that the property first be removed from the trust before they will lend on it. When a trust is revocable, this may not be an issue since the home can be added back into to trust once the mortgage process has been completed. Once the trust becomes irrevocable, often times the ability to do so is no longer possible and a lender who can lend to Irrevocable Trusts will be required.

When the requirements of Proposition 58 need to be considered, the situation can become even more complicated. Proposition 58 requires that the acquiring beneficiary of the real estate makes no personal guarantee on the trust loan or trust mortgage.  Doing so would be perceived as a sibling to sibling transfer of real estate as opposed to a parent to child transfer and would likely jeopardize the exclusion from property reassessment. Commercial Loan Corporation is one of the only lenders in California that provides Irrevocable Trust Loans with no personal guarantee requirements. We work directly with Trust Administrators, Trustees, Beneficiaries, Attorneys and Property Tax Consultants. If you require a Trust & Estate Attorney or Property Tax Consultant to assist you with Proposition 58, we can refer you to an expert to assist you.

Is A Trust Loan Less Expensive Than Selling A Home?

Yes, in almost all cases a trust loan is far less expensive than selling a home. Additionally a trust loan takes less time to complete than it takes to sell a home. We can complete a trust loan in as little as 10 business days. That means beneficiaries can get more money and get their funds more quickly. When you consider the ability to take advantage of the Proposition 58’s exclusion from reassessment, the savings grow even further.

We specialize in loans to Irrevocable Trusts. If you or a client are in need of a trust loan or have questions about loans to an irrevocable trust, please call us at 877-464-1066. We will provide you with a free benefit analysis and answer any question you may have.

This can make it difficult if not impossible for a beneficiary to qualify for Proposition 58.

Jay Rhein – Trust Loan Account Executive

Commercial Loan Corporation welcomes Jay Rhein, our newest Trust & Estate Loan Account Executive.

Commercial Loan Corporation is excited to welcome Jay Rhein to our Trust and Estate Loan team! Jay’s primary role at Commercial Loan Corporation is to assist clients, Attorneys and Trust Administrators in obtaining mortgages for trusts and estates. Our Trust & Estate Loans help beneficiaries and heirs take advantage of California Proposition 58’s exclusion for property tax reassessment and retain a parents low Proposition 13 tax base on an inherited home. This is accomplished by providing a trust or estate with the cash needed for an equal distribution of assets; one of the California Board of Equalization requirements for Proposition 58.

A few words from Jay Rhein

“I began my career in the real estate business when I was a young lad attending UCLA. I worked in the construction industry (pounding nails) during the summer to pay my way through college.

After I graduated with a degree in economics, my bride and I started our wine distribution business. We represented small family owned wineries. Working hard, we were able to get our wineries into all the major supermarket chains including Safeway, Vons, Albertsons and Ralphs.

For the past six years I have had the privilege of serving as a mortgage banker helping homeowners and business owners achieve their dreams and goals. My proudest moment was when I had the honor of stopping Bank of America from foreclosing the next day on a 104-year-old borrower. I was able to secure a reverse mortgage which will provide enough funds so she can stay in her home for another one hundred and four years.

My goal is to place my customers in the best possible financial position for their future while providing the top customer experience in the industry. Commercial Loan Corporation with its family values gives me the freedom to do this. In fact, the founder insists on it.”

What is Trust & Estate Distribution Optimization?

Trust Distribution Optimization

Call 877-464-1066 to Optimize Your Trust or Estate Distribution

Commercial Loan Corporation does more than just provide mortgages to Trusts and Estates. We also optimize trust and estate distributions!

What does that mean? Well, we can significantly increase the funds that are distributed to the beneficiaries of a trust or estate. In fact, on average we increase the funds a Trust or Estate distributes by over $40,000.

How we increase distribution funds is simple. We provide a loan directly to the Trust or Estate enabling a beneficiary to keep a family home and providing an equal share of cash to the other beneficiaries. Our Trust Loan eliminates the need to sell a parents home, avoiding the costs association with fixing up a home for sale, costly realtor expenses and seller related closing costs. This ends up being an incredible savings that all the beneficiaries of the trust or estate are all able to share in. Best of all, one of the beneficiaries is able to keep the family home and utilize California Proposition 58 to preserver a parents low Proposition 13 tax base saving on average $6,200 per year in property taxes.

Allow us to optimize your trust or estate!

If you, a family member or a client might be able to benefit from one of our trust and estate loans, please call us at 877-464-1066. We can provide you with a FREE SAVINGS ESTIMATE!

Non Pro Rata Distribution Loans For Trusts and Estates

Non Pro Rata Distribution Loans For Trusts and Estates – Call Commercial Loan Corporation at 877-464-1066

Non Pro Rata Distribution Loans For Trusts and Estates

Commercial Loan Corporation is one of California’s leading providers of loans to trusts and estates. Our specialized mortgage infuses a trust or estate with cash so that a non pro rata distribution can be made. A non pro rata distribution occurs when each heir or beneficiary receives an equal proportion of the entire estate or trust distribution but not of each asset. When a trust or estate does not hold sufficient cash assets, our loan provides the trust or estate with the cash needed to equalize the distribution or payout of the estate. This allows one of the beneficiaries or heirs to keep an inherited home and take advantage of the Proposition 58 tax benefit; which allows the California Proposition 13 protected low tax base from their parent to be transferred to the child who is inheriting the home.

On average our Non Pro Rata Trust Distribution and Probate Estate Distribution Loans save clients over $6,200 per year in property taxes. Our process is quick and easy.  In fact we can often times complete a non pro rata loan in as little as 7 business days. Our loan is made directly to the trust.

If you, a family member or a client that you represent requires a California Proposition 58 Non Pro Rate Distribution Loan, please call us at 877-464-1066. Even if you are attempting to distribute and irrevocable trust, we have loan programs that can assist you. We can answer any questions you have on our non pro rate distribution loans and provide you with a free cost benefit analysis to see if one of our trust and estate loans makes sense for you.
