Guaranteed Loan Program

Guaranteed Loan Processing Time- Current turn time in Puerto Rico is 1-2 weeks. Business days exclude weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and all federal holidays. All loan applications are processed in the order they are received. "Rush requests" will not be processed any differently than all other requests. Please schedule processing times accordingly.

Guaranteed Loan - Prohibited Purposes- Properties with income producing potential, as well as with non-essential buildings. Mixed construction properties (wood walls or roof, aluminum/galvanized roof) are not acceptable.  The living area must be completely in concrete. Wood covered terrace, carport are considered non living area and are acceptable.

"Flipping Rule"- USDA does not have a specific guideline regarding how long the subject property must be owned by the seller. It is the lender's responsibility to insure that the appraised value is based on the most current and accurate data available.
