For Existing Customers
Lenders and CDC’s have been authorized by the SBA to assist borrowers experiencing temporary cash flow issues due to COVID-19 by deferring payments for a stated period of time.
SBA 504 borrowers will need to contact their CDC that financed the loan. They are authorized to offer up to 6-month deferment plans with different options. Affected borrowers can choose no payment at all during each of the 6 months, or they have the option to continue to pay interest and fees each month. Interest will still accrue on the loans in deferment and a catch-up plan must be in place within 6 months of it being approved.
If you have an SBA 504 loan with HCDC as the CDC please contact our Loan Servicing Department to discuss options that may be available to assist you. You can reach Darlene Herald at 513.458.2236 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many HCDC SBA 504 borrowers have obtained second or third 504 loans to finance additional locations, expand an existing location, or purchase machinery and equipment. Subsequent applications are simplified since we already have an active file of information and your loan request can be processed with a minimum of new paperwork. Contact us to find out about another 504 loan.

504 Loans are funded by way of a monthly bond sale on the secondary market which require a slightly different payoff process than a typical bank loan. Partial prepayments are not accepted.
If you have an SBA 504 loan we can provide an estimated payoff amount to you for planning purposes.
Prepayments are made on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
HCDC must have an eight day written notice that the loan is going to prepay.
Please be advised that the SBA 504 loans are assumable, which would eliminate the need to pay the prepayment premium.
All payoffs are made by wire transfer.
A pre-payment premium may apply please contact Darlene Herald, phone 513-631-8292 if you are considering loan payoff or a loan assumption.
According to the terms of your SBA 504 Loan Authorization you are required to insure your property for the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis.

You, as a borrower, are responsible for paying the property taxes. No escrow account for property tax payments or impound account on the real estate has been induced with your SBA 504 loan. Please check with the County Tax Collector or Assessor in which your property taxes are due.
To comply with SBA requirements HCDC may make field visits as necessary or when requested by SBA to review business operations and the condition of SBA collateral.

In some cases a loan assumption may be more advantageous than prepaying a 504 loan. Assumption of a loan may be a way of transferring a better interest rate than current market rates and there are no prepayment premiums. SBA 504 may be assumed by a new borrower provided:
- The value of the collateral is maintained at the same level as available to the SBA prior to the assumption
- The third party lender must concur with the assumption
- In most cases the existing guarantors may be require to remain on the loan up to 12 months after assumption
- A 1% assumption fee plus normal closing costs will be charged
SBA may subordinate the SBA 504 loan to a new third party lender if the refinancing is on more favorable terms for the borrower and the borrower does not receive any funds from the refinancing (no cash out), except for reasonable closing costs of refinancing. The term of the new third party loan must equal or exceed the term of the original third party loan. The SBA may also subordinate to a larger new third party loan if the loan proceeds will be used to improve the project collateral and the SBA’s collateral position remains the same or is improved by the transaction.
A deferment is a postponement of a payment to a later date without causing the loan to be considered late or in default. Deferments are used where it appears that it will assist the borrower in solving a temporary cash flow problem. The SBA may approve up to a six month (cumulative) of payment deferment or 20 percent of the original amount of the loan whichever is less. The borrower must reasonably project that it will bring current the deferred amount within five years after the deferment period.
On occasion SBA will take additional collateral to support the 504 loan. The SBA will make a credit decision regarding the impact of the release prior to any action. There must be indication that the remaining collateral is reasonable in relation to the outstanding loan balance and the release will not interfere with the operations of the business. The borrower should use proceeds of the release for business purposes. The SBA rarely gives consideration to release business assets in order to provide funds for personal reasons.
