Lending to self-employed borrowers can be challenging, especially for smaller financial institutions that specialize in retail credits, without a seasoned commercial lending division to reference or underwrite credits. This presentation will take the mystery out of underwriting self-employed borrowers and provide practical steps to: identify income sources; request verification documents, including income tax returns and K-1 schedules, deriving cash available to service debt; and identify required debt service, including debts not listed on the borrower’s credit report.
In addition, this presentation will provide insight regarding the importance of understanding borrower liquidity and leverage. The strength of a borrower’s personal financial statement is especially important when the credit is unsecured, or the LTV is at, or above, policy limits.
