FAQ With Andrew
What can I expect during a phone consultation with LSG Lending?
We will discuss your current or potential project that you are looking to get financed. We will discuss the project that needs financing. We will discuss the timing of the different loan programs. For new construction projects, we will discuss the investors experience with similar projects that have been completed in size and scope. We will discuss various loan programs that fit the criteria that works best for you. I will follow up with an email requesting documentation needed to review the project.
How long can I expect a decision to be made after LSG Lending and its Lending partners review the documentation?
I will follow up with a call to discuss the information provided and get clarification on any information that may be needed. I will submit the documentation with a loan summary to an FHA/HUD and Agency approved lender for review. I will work with the lender on all communication of additional information needed for a term sheet to be issued. I will provide a term sheet or let the client know that the project does not meet the criteria and the reasoning in a timely manner. I will work with the lenders underwriting team to provide all necessary documentation. After exhausting all avenues, I will inform you in a timely manner that we are unable to obtain financing and provide a possible alternative solution or strategy.
What are the next steps after a term sheet is issued by the lender that discloses the approximate, rate, term, loan amount and equity contribution needed (if applicable)?
I will set up a conference call with the lender, client, and myself to discuss the term sheet and timing of the project. If the client is happy with the terms and conditions of the term sheet, the lender will issue a formal engagement letter to the Sponsors.
What happens after the Engagement is issued by the Lender?
I will coordinate a conference call with the Lender’s underwriting team to answer any questions the Sponsors may have.
How long will LSG Lending be involved in the process?
LSG Lending will work as a consultant to answer any lending questions that you may have throughout the entire process until the transaction is closed
Do I have to pay LSG Lending a consultant fee or any fees upfront or at the beginning of the process?
No, LSG Lending does not receive compensation until the transaction is closed. LSG Lending will receive a fee that is disclosed in the Lenders Engagement Letter, and may also receive additional compensation from the Lender once the transaction is completed.
