Notes:

  • Lenders do not have to be a licensed SBA lender to participate in the 504 program
  • Lenders have no servicing requirements on the 504 loan
  • Lenders do not have to remit monthly SBA fees on 504 as they do with 7(a)
  • Lenders’ rates typically adjust every 3 – 5 years
  • The 504 rate is fixed for the 20 year term on the 504 portion of the loan

Footnotes:

¹ The 5.76% interest rate is a blended rate of the 504 loan and the Lender loan.

² The 7(a) processing fee is paid by the Lender via the SBA 1502 report monthly on each 7(a) loan. The amount is .494% of the interest on the SBA quarantined portion of the loan.

³ 504 fees are included in the note amount and rounded to the nearest $1,000. In this example the $6,000 + $1,000 + $1,636 = $8,636 is rounded to $9,000 and is included in the note. This takes the 504 portion of the loan from $400,000 to $409,000. The rounding difference of $364 will be refunded to the borrower when the 504 loan is booked.
