We are financing the purchase of land with a small cabin on it and taking as additional collateral a piece of property with a mobile home and pole barns on it. The properties are or will be owned by a partnership and will not be owner-occupied. It has been determined that the property with the mobile home and pole barns on it is in a flood zone. The mobile home is not in good condition. No one is living in it. In this case, would the borrower have to get flood insurance on the mobile home?
Borrower is a corporation with one shareholder. All business assets are pledged as collateral. Lender wants the spouse to also sign on loan docs, with the concern being that she may gain ownership of at least 1/2 assets should they divorce. Would asking her to sign be a violation of Reg B? If so, does the lender have a bona fide concern regarding assets or does the fact that the borrower is a coporation make this a non-issue? Flip side: What about if the borrower was a partnership or sole proprietorship and the spouse has no role in the affairs or function of the business? (e.g., farmer Bob who takes a loan secured by crops.) Lender wants to add wife to loan as a condition for the same reasons listed above. How should I advise my lender?
