Epc Oc Lease Agreement

Posted by on December 8, 2020

There are cases where individuals own the property and lease it to the operating company. This is permitted, as is anything that goes through a legal review and the eligibility criteria of the SBA. Note that if more than one OCs are in order, only one EPC per transaction is allowed. Finally, the EPC must lease 100% of the proposed real estate to the operating company. The lease agreement must be co-terminated with the term of the loan, which may include renewal options. The operating company has the right to sublet part of the property as long as the occupancy requirements set out in the SBA loan authorization are met. Lenders should properly document the subordination of rent as well as the allocation of leases and rents for EPC/OC operations. The Legitimate Passive Society (EPC) rule is an exception to SBA rules that prohibit the financing of assets for passive income. A CPR may only use the proceeds of the loan for the acquisition or lease and/or improvement or renovation of real estate that it leases to one or more operating companies (COs) for the purposes of the OC`s operations. Historically, an EPD had to use the loan`s revenues only to acquire or lease to one or more operating companies and/or to improve or renovate it. As a result, the change of ownership of the CBE itself was not eligible for funding.

The strict interpretation imposed by this rule prevented the financing of ownership changes between the existing owners of the CBE. This restriction threatened to close businesses if circumstances required the departure of one of the owners of the CBE and if there was no credit elsewhere. The amended by-law now allows funding to change ownership between existing owners of the CBE. Under the 504 loan program, loan proceeds can now be used to finance a change of ownership between existing EPC owners, provided that all assets held by the EPC are matched with other eligible real estate or other long-term assets, de minimis and are excluded from project 504 financing. The revision of the regulation contains SOP`s long-standing requirement that rents or rents paid by the OC should not exceed the amount required to pay the loan to the lender and an additional amount to cover the direct expenses of the CBE for the ownership of the property, such as maintenance taxes, insurance taxes and property taxes. In the additional information contained in the publication of the final rule, the Agency stated that the “payment to the lender” under the loan program included 504 payments to the third-party permanent lender and the CDC. The Agency confirmed its intention not to allow the CBE to benefit from its relationship with the OC, but did not specify whether a minimum rent payment was necessary.

Although, in most cases, leases are repayable without the tenant`s consent, it is a completely different task to convince a tenant to convert their existing tenancy agreement into subletting and to subordinate it to the lender`s right to pledge.

It can become a long and complex negotiation process and can lead to a price, for example the promise of non-interference on the part of the lender. In my experience, existing tenants who will be asked to submit their leases and convert them into subleases will always want the lender to ensure that their leases are not disrupted. As part of a subordination, dysfunction and dysfunctional agreement (“SNDA”), the lender recognizes the sublease and undertakes not to disrupt the lease if the subtenant is not late; At the same time, the third-party tenant agrees to tear (recognize) the lender`s superior rights over its pawn rights and thus submits its interest to the lender for subletting.
