Most bankers acknowledge that construction lending is riskier than other types of commercial lending:

  • Repayment ability depends on successful completion of the construction before the project can generate cash flow from the sale of the finished property, from rental or lease of the real estate, or permanent take-out refinancing
  • During the construction period, the collateral is literally work-in-progress, and often the guarantors do not have sufficient outside net worth or income to pay off the loan


This webinar addresses how to mitigate the higher risk, and it offers advice and guidance on how to extend construction loans safely and profitably:

  • Construction lending policy - defining a construction loan, outlining necessary information and documentation needed to evaluate construction loan, monitoring loan performance
  • Appropriate underwriting and structuring - LTV, LTC, minimum equity, bonding, etc.
  • Role and activities of real estate construction administration (RECAD)—sources & uses, costs review, inspections, disbursements, retention, liens, construction problem mitigation

Most bankers acknowledge that construction lending is riskier than other types of commercial lending:

  • Repayment ability depends on successful completion of the construction before the project can generate cash flow from the sale of the finished property, from rental or lease of the real estate, or from permanent take-out refinancing
  • During the construction period, the collateral is literally work-in-progress, and often the guarantors do not have sufficient outside net worth or income to pay off the loan

Therefore, participants will learn how to evaluate the developer’s ability to repay the construction loan, develop an appropriate underwriting of the construction project to ensure the resulting structure ensures the bank will be repaid in full, on time, and as agreed, and how to satisfactorily monitor and manage the credit exposure and the construction activity.
