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.
