All Weather Focus: Loan Closing No Matter What

March 22, 2023

Sometimes a loan closing poses unexpected challenges.

Our Florida-based clients were used to Florida weather.

But they weren’t counting on a hurricane during the underwriting process.

GRP Capital stayed focused during the entire loan process , as loan closing was the key to this refinance and partnership buyout.

As it turned out, the property had minimal damage and only suffered from some short-term power outages. The storm, however, delayed the appraisal and Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) reporting. When there are large storms, appraisers and environmental engineers are in high demand.

GRP Capital stayed in touch with the lender, the clients and all of the third party vendors to make sure everybody prioritized this closure.

GRP Capital President Rick Patel worked closely with the clients and the other stakeholders, too. Rick noted, “This loan closing was very important to the client partners. The ownership of the hotel had changed and we needed new financing with correct guarantors. With our guidance, the loan closed in a reasonable time, despite rather challenging circumstances in the region.”

What to do if your Property Has Damage from a storm?

• Communicate with your lender or ask GRP Capital to: Lenders and borrowers are not adversaries, but business partners in a way. Lenders deserve to know if your business has sustained damage, which will affect your bottom line. Lenders can be your advocates. Helpful lenders can suspend payments, extend a loan or even restructure a loan to include repairs that won’t be covered by insurance.

•  Combine storm damage repair with a PIP:  Believe it or not, storm damage can actually be an opportunity. If you have always wanted some renovation, consider the timing. Renovating during repairs might save you money. .

•  Hire an attorney: An attorney can work with your insurance company to protect your interests. He or she will also review any contracts. Most importantly, attorneys will remove any liens that are placed on your property during the repair process.
