Guaranty Insurance in Real Estate Finance Transactions
Policy Requirements, Provisions and Exclusions; Loan Document Provisions; Determining Need for Backup Guaranty
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide counsel with an understanding of loan guaranty insurance and how it can be used instead of, or supplement, a personal guaranty in a commercial mortgage transaction. The panel will discuss the mechanics of placing and making claims under guaranty insurance, backstop guaranties and other documentation in conjunction with the policy, and critical deal points when negotiating coverage and exclusions.
- Problems presented by traditional guaranties: heavily negotiated, borrower credit history, enforcement
- Guaranty insurance as an alternative to a guaranty
- Requirements and characteristics of guaranty insurance
- Property underwriting
- Type of transaction: construction vs. permanent
- Loan term
- Coverage and exclusions
- Making claims under a guaranty policy--foreclosure requirement
- Adjustments to loan documents to reflect insurance: Need for backup guaranty?
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are some advantages of guaranty insurance over a traditional personal guaranty in a real estate finance transaction?
- What kinds of properties and loans are best suited for guaranty insurance?
- Why is the insurance company rating important and how should loan documents address a downgrade in the insurance company?
- In what circumstances might a lender still require recourse to the borrower and guarantor?
