While life on a farm may seem idyllic, the reality is a farm loan can quickly become a deep mire if not properly performed. Unlike traditional lending situations, farm loans present many unique issues given the underlying collateral and applicable laws. This webinar will address best practices that should be applied when seeking to resolve distressed agricultural-based loans. Key items that will be covered include:
• Pre-negotiation considerations for both lenders and borrowers;
• Unique legal/lending issues related to common farm-based collateral; and
• Best practices that lenders and borrowers should employ to resolve an agricultural loan.
