Beginner Track 1-B: New topic! Please note new title and topic for
The When and How Much of Guaranty Purchase Repairs - The
SOP 50 57 recommends that lenders include repair estimates in their purchase
request packages. This puts a new burden on lenders to identify when a repair
may be appropriate and to calculate just how much the repair amount should be.
Jane Butler, NAGGL, will help to demystify the concept of "repair" and use
real-life scenarios provided by the National Guaranty Purchase Center to provide
tips on exactly what information lenders should now include in purchase
(If you had already registered for the previous topic, please email us to
change sessions by May 8. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. Email
General Track 3-B: Effective Credit
Enhancements Outside of the SBA - While SBA programs are the most
widely used credit enhancements, there are other effective options available
through various Federal and State programs. These alternative programs often
fill niches and meet needs that SBA cannot. Panel members from WEDC, WHEDA and
USDA-Rural Development will provide an overview of the programs they have
available. Case studies will be used to help demonstrate the various ways these
programs can be used.
