hard money refi and building not ready for tenants
« on: February 19, 2010, 08:51:34 pm »
I have a hard money loan, the same company employed the rehab contractor. The work has not been completed and I bought the property in June 09. The loan is due and I am unable to refi because I don't have leases. I have not been able to rent the units out because it's not ready. I keep getting the run around from the contractor and the lender is demanding interest payments. Should I pay the interest or if not what will they do to me?

Although you should have asked these questions before you purchased the property, borrowed the money from a hard money lender, and before you hired this contractor who appears to be in partnership with the lender, I would suggest that you pay the interest that you contracted to pay.  Furthermore, I would most likely (not knowing all the circumstances) fire the contractors and replace them with reputable ones.

Lastly, in the future, when you hire contractors for rehabs, you need to include in your contract a flat fee for the job, a deadline, and a reduction PER DAY in their fee for each day that passes the deadline when the job is not completed on time.
