LA Loft Loans – Financing Industrial and Commercial Loft Conversions in Downtown Los Angeles

LA Loft Loan Problems – 
Financing Industrial and Commercial Loft Conversions in Downtown Los Angeles

Commercial Loft Conversion

It is the #1 most common disaster that buyers and sellers encounter when transacting a loft condo in LA.  —  This shocking problem happens most frequently when the buyer and seller both use an out-of-area agent who has no idea about the uniquely challenging financing issues that surround live-work loft conversion.  After an often clumsy process of finding the right loft, and then finally getting into escrow, the buyer receives a very unexpected phone call from the lender that goes something like this: “of course we cannot complete the loan as promised… we are a residential lender and you told us you were financing a residential property.  This is not a residential building.”

Avoiding this disaster is easy when the buyer has access to the best information about loft financing.  Below is a list of loft buildings that may require a loft lender, litigation lender or other special financing.
