If you have a maturing note, you have the following options:
- Pay off the remainder of the loan
- Extend the loan
- Renew the loan
- Secure new financing
Choosing the Best Option for your Maturing Note:
• Paying off a maturing note: If you have had a conventional or even SBA mortgage which has been paying down your debt over a long number of years, making your final payment might not be too cumbersome. Do you have a bridge loan or a construction loan? If this is the case, full payoff may not be feasible. Be aware that you will no longer have tax credits for mortgage interest, which will change your taxable income.
• Extending the Loan: This option allows you to get some extra time before making that final payment. Extension is most common when facing balloon payments. Your lender must agree to an extension; in fact, this is not automatically granted. There will likely be some additional interest charges should you choose this option.
• Loan Renewal: Have you had a good relationship with your lender? Were your payments on time for the most part (with perhaps some pauses during COVID 19 lockdowns)? Your lender MAY be amenable to creating a new loan. This will allow you to continue to pay down debt, reducing your taxable income, while staying with a familiar lending partner. Unfortunately, there are certain industries that are coming up against lender hesitancy to renew loans, including hospitality loans.
Securing a New Loan: If you cannot go back to your current lender, you must secure new financing. Because of higher interest rates, this is the time to seek advice and figure out the best options.
