Customizing Funds Controls and Lien Updates for Commercial Lending

Learn how to manage funds controls and lien updates based on unique project characteristics

Estimated Program Length: 60 minutes

Program Description: Construction loans for commercial real estate (CRE) have many moving parts. In our first program, we provided an overview of the key issues involved in analyzing and assessing the risk involved in a specific project as an important step to planning a customized approach to the administration for the project.

Our second program focused on how the structure of a project affects administration steps, in addition to the risk profile. We continued with the theme that construction risk elements are not equal in every project, so why try to create a “one size fits all” or standard approach to every project?

In this program, we explore how banks apply the risk profile and project type to funding controls and lien updates. First, we’ll look at the range of funding controls that banks employ, from minimal structure to more or maximum controls. Second, we’ll look at the concept of liens and the basics of how waivers work. While some of the details vary from state to state, most lenders have a range of options to choose from, depending on the level of risk in the specific project.
