Lending to self-employed borrowers can be fraught with challenges, including proper documentation, income validation, repayment sources, etc. This webinar will demystify underwriting for these borrowers and provide useful advice on how to retrieve the information you need.
AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:
- Use Form 1040 as the primary means to identify income sources for self-employed borrowers
- Identify underwriting documentation required to determine a borrower’s payment coverage ability, liquidity, and leverage
- Explain the underwriting documentation requirements to self-employed borrowers
- Review your policy regarding self-employed borrowers to identify enhancement opportunities
- Document and identify all repayment sources
- Lend more confidently, especially with unsecured credit
Lending to self-employed borrowers can be challenging, especially for smaller financial institutions that specialize in retail credits, without a seasoned commercial lending division to reference or underwrite credits. This presentation will take the mystery out of underwriting self-employed borrowers and provide practical steps to: identify income sources; request verification documents, including income tax returns and K-1 schedules, deriving cash available to service debt; and identify required debt service, including debts not listed on the borrower’s credit report.
In addition, this presentation will provide insight regarding the importance of understanding borrower liquidity and leverage. The strength of a borrower’s personal financial statement is especially important when the credit is unsecured, or the LTV is at, or above, policy limits.
Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
