Refinancing Family Transfer Hotel Loan in Texas
San Antonio, TX
Sometimes the solution to a refinance may be in a family transfer. In this project, simple refinance would have been very difficult to achieve, instead with the family favorable towards an intrafamily transfer, we structured this financing as a purchase of the hotel by the son from his father. This helped consolidate a number of existing loans including the SBA 504 loans and Texas property tax loans. A key in such a transfer is taking advantage of the franchise intrafamily free transfer clause which does not require a new franchise application/fee for this transaction. Additionally, we were able to leverage an additional collateral to complete this purchase with 100% financing and no down payment from the buyer (son).
It is worth noting here that this project could have been financed through the conventional program, but we were able to increase the loan amount to pay all the costs and the taxes and to reimburse some existing expenditures by going the SBA route.
