Advanced Commercial Loan Documentation

May 23, 2019
Program Overview: 

May 23, 2019, 3:00 - 4:30 pm

Commercial loans carry the most risk and technical requirements, and therefore receive the most examiner scrutiny.  This session will go beyond the basics and provide a better understanding of protections and safeguards to use when drafting loan and collateral security documents and underwriting loans.  This is a must-attend webinar for commercial lenders seeking more advanced training, including how to avoid hazards.

  • Identifying the parties to the loan – beneficial ownership rule
    • Ensure you know who owns, guarantees, and is authorized or required to sign which documents
  • Loan agreement covenants and when to consider using more than boilerplate covenants
  • Perfection of security interest, including different types of collateral (marketable securities, deposit accounts, life insurance policies, equipment and inventory, contracts or receivables, leases, etc.)
  • Title insurance policies, including endorsements and exceptions
  • Subordination agreements – when to get them, what is being subordinated (repayment priority, lien position), and when to ask for subordination of loans to shareholders
  • Documenting commercial construction loans
    • A general liability policy does not cover a subcontractor’s faulty workmanship
  • Commercial lending compliance hot spots


    • Commercial loan documentation checklist
    • Commercial real estate documentation checklist
    • Employee training log
    • Quiz to measure staff learning and a separate answer key
