Lender Support Services

Our firm has been providing asset management, land use and construction management consulting to lenders, investors, landowners and developers since our company’s formation over ten years ago. As part of our long term business plan, we were prepared to assist our clients when the market began to slow. We did not need to reinvent ourselves – we always have provided consulting services. Upon request, we will be glad to provide a list of references including capital partners.

There are many property related aspects for a special asset or OREO manager to be concerned. In today’s regulatory driven market and litigious environment, government agencies do not differentiate between builder or developer owned properties and bank owned sites. Consequently, lenders are required to manage their properties, including such issues as storm water run-off and on-going entitlements issues as though they were the developer. Our goal is to assist our clients to the maximum extent practical, even in their storm water compliance issues.

We can provide our services on an hourly rate, time and materials or fixed fee basis.

To assist lenders in their analysis of special assets, South Coast has several products and tools to aid in the valuation process.

  • Property Evaluation

Development Consulting

The focus of our services is entitlement of land for development. Typically, the company is retained by a landowner or financial institution to serve as project manager in the planning and entitlement phase of the project or prior to the sale and build-out of a project.

Our company also has a great deal of experience interfacing with a variety of governmental agencies, including the Army Corps of Engineers, Regional Water Quality Control Board, Department of Oil & Gas, California Coastal Commission, Department of Toxic Substances Control and various city and county governments throughout California.

We can provide our services on an hourly rate, time and materials or fixed fee basis. Generally, there is no charge for reviewing projects or to bring our company up to speed on your land or project.

Insurance Consulting

South Coast Communities, LLC, has been providing insurance consulting services to a variety of banks and receivers. These services include reviewing insurance requirements for each unique special asset. In many instances, borrowers have defaulted and are not maintaining adequate insurance to manage the project’s risks. When the bank takes over, either directly or through a receiver, the bank often opts for expensive “forced placed” insurance. This is insurance that is placed without adequate underwriting.
