Commercial loans are challenging, risky, and regulation-laden.

Add extra examiner scrutiny and you can’t afford to make mistakes – especially when it comes to documentation. This webinar will provide an opportunity to delve deeply into documentation compliance, including disclosures, collateral security requirements, title policies, and more. Can you afford to miss it?

  • Identify parties to the loan - ensure you know who owns, guarantees, and is authorized or required to sign which documents
  • Understand loan agreement covenants, including when you should consider more than boilerplate covenants
  • Perfect security interests under UCC Article 9 and other rules
  • Review title insurance policies, including endorsements and exceptions
  • Detail subordination agreements: when to get them, what is being subordinated (repayment priority, lien position), and when to ask for subordination of loans to shareholders
  • Document commercial construction loans and know how to disclose builder’s risk insurance
  • Understand compliance requirements and commercial lending hot spots


Each commercial loan is unique. These loans carry the most risk, have the most technical requirements, and therefore receive the most examiner scrutiny. This session will dive deep into a commercial loan file to address the documentation to support regulatory compliance. It will review the disclosures, the collateral security documents, the title policy elements, and features of the note that should be in place to safeguard your institution. In addition, it will cover best practices for underwriting and how to avoid the hazards.


This informative session is designed for commercial lenders, loan operations staff, loan review staff, and auditors.
