Loan Underwriting Process

The Loan Underwriting Process at Windsor Advantage is divided into four (4) phases:

The Eligibility & Structuring phase is to be used by Lenders who require assistance determining:

i) whether a potential transaction is eligible for the SBA 7(a) program and/or 

ii) need advice on how to properly structure the transaction to fit the parameters of the SBA 7(a) program. 

This is an “as needed” step in the Windsor Underwriting process.

For questions regarding deals at this stage, email [email protected]

The Intake & Pre-Assessment phase of the Windsor Underwriting Process starts with the initial submission of a new transaction by Lender to Windsor. 

Upon receipt of a new transaction, a Windsor Underwriting Manager will review the key information and conduct a cursory review of the loan file to determine if there is enough information for the transaction to be assigned to a Windsor Underwriter for formal analysis and underwriting.

The Credit Analysis & Memo phase of the Windsor Underwriting Process starts with a Windsor Underwriter being assigned to the transaction. 

From there, the underwriter will conduct a more thorough review of the loan file/request, spread the financials, and craft an SBA-compliant draft credit memorandum for Lender review.

The Lender Approval phase starts with the Windsor Underwriter providing Lender with a draft credit memorandum. Lender will then review the memo with the Windsor Underwriter completing any requested edits, changes, etc. from Lender. 

Lender will then approve (or deny) the loan request via Lender’s approval process. Approved transactions will then transition from Windsor Underwriting to the Windsor Processing department for SBA authorization and closing.
