How Caveat Loans Work?

Caveat loans are secured business loans that require borrowers to use their land or property as security against the money being borrowed. Under this option, you can borrow anywhere from $1,000 to $50 million, but it'll all depend on the value of the land or property you’re offering as security.

Usually caveat loans will allow you to borrow up to a specific percentage of your property’s value – usually 70 to 90 per cent. But it is still worth noting that some will allow you to borrow your property’s full value.

Caveat loans primarily function like a second mortgage, which means that you can claim ownership of the security (property or land), or the equivalent amount in equity used as security, should the borrower fail to pay back the loan. Once you take out a caveat loan, you cannot use the property as collateral elsewhere or sell it until you’ve paid off the loan.

Caveat loans generally get approved within a day or two, with most having a loan term of between one to twelve months.

With Caveat loans, there is usually no need to provide the documentation - like property valuation, proof of income, or revenue forecasts - you might be required to make available when taking up a conventional business loan.
