Prepayment Premiums

SBA 504 loans – the premium is based on a declining scale over the first half of the loan. The premium is adjusted every six months concurrent with the semi-annual debenture payments based on the balance of the loan at the six month intervals. On a 20-year debenture, the premium in the first six months would be the annual interest on the beginning balance of the loan. In the sixth month, the premium would be adjusted to the annual interest on the balance as of the sixth month. In the second year, the premium would be 90% of the annual interest based on the loan balance at the beginning of the second year. The premium would be recalculated in six months. In the third year, the premium would be 80% of the balance at the beginning of the third year, adjusted at six months. The premium declines in this manner over the ten year period so that in the tenth year, the premium is 10% of the annual interest.

SBA 504 Prepaid Interest

Although a borrower may prepay a loan in any month with proper notice, the SBA cannot repurchase the SBA 504 debenture until the semi-annual payment date. Therefore, when a borrower prepays a loan, the prepayment includes interest due up to and including the next semi-annual payment date. For example, if a debenture’s semi-annual payments are due in January and June and the borrower prepays the loan in February, the prepayment will include interest due from February to June.

Prepayment confirmation will be provided approximately 1 week following the prepayment date. Reconveyance will be issued approximately 20 days following prepayment date.

Insurance must remain in force until the loan is paid in full.
