Welcome, property investors! As you navigate the landscape of real estate investment, understanding the strategic use of Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) loans is essential. Today, we delve into a crucial aspect of these loans: using a DSCR loan to close in the name of your LLC or other business entity.
Many DSCR programs offer the flexibility to close in the name of your business entity, be it an LLC, Corporation, S-Corporation, Limited Partnership (LP), General Partnership (GP), or Limited Liability Limited Partnership (LLLP). This approach is highly sought for its tax and liability advantages, helping to separate your business affairs from personal ones.
When you opt for this route, the loan application is made in your name, and you personally guarantee the loan. However, the public records will reflect your entity's name on the title, not yours. It's important to understand that this is full recourse lending, meaning you are personally liable for the loan's monthly payments, just as if you had closed in your own name.
Some lenders, like us, provide additional benefits when closing in the name of your business entity. In our DSCR program, you can close in your entity's name with a personal guarantee, but we do not report the mortgage on your personal credit history. This feature can be particularly advantageous for maintaining a clear distinction between your personal and business credit profiles.
To successfully close in your entity's name, you’ll need the following:
Understanding the nuances of DSCR programs, especially when closing in the name of your LLC or other business entity, can significantly impact your real estate investment strategy.
With the right knowledge and the right lender, you can leverage these loans to their fullest potential, ensuring a separation between your personal and business investments, while enjoying the tax and liability benefits.
