What’s Included in a Draw Request?

Whether this is your first time working with Crossroads Investment Lending or you’ve collaborated with us before, it’s never a bad idea for a refresher on draw requests. The loan draw process is much more than just a simple request you can quickly fill out and submit. Rather, a draw request is a collection of documents you must submit together as evidence of the progress of your construction project. In most cases, draw requests are based on just one milestone within the project. The following documents are essential parts of a draw request:

  • Invoices
  • Change Orders
  • Lien Waivers
  • Receipts
  • Overview of Progress

Working Through the Loan Draw Process 

We know the loan draw process isn’t always an easy one to navigate. Crossroads Investment Lending is here for you every step of the way, ensuring all documentation is collected and filed properly. We start with a draw schedule illustrating a payment plan for the duration of your construction project. In contrast to many of our competitors, we fund draws after considering the already-completed work. This way, there’s no worrying about what constitutes 25 percent completed. With this burden off your plate, the loan draw process becomes much more streamlined and stress-free.

Gaining Pre-Approval for a Line of Credit

As you move forward with the loan draw process, you’ll encounter numerous forms. Whether or not you’re already familiar with these forms, Crossroads Investment Lending is here to help. First, you’ll need to get pre-approved for a line of credit. Our straightforward credit application collects all the information we need to help you complete this step of the loan draw process. Besides some baseline information, this form also asks for your latest tax returns and personal financial statements.

Streamline Your Personal Financial Statement

If you’re unfamiliar with the personal financial statements mentioned above, Crossroads Investment Lending can provide the forms you need. This form collects information regarding your current financial situation, including an exhaustive list of assets and liabilities of all kinds. Here, you’ll report any retirement funds, securities, real estate assets, mortgages, and taxes payable, among others.

Get Started on Your Draw Request Form

Once you’re ready to fill out the draw request form, Crossroads Investment Lending still has your back. We understand managing a construction project is enough of a challenge on its own before you throw countless forms into the mix. During this portion of the loan draw process, you’ll need to furnish information concerning how to access the property and what repairs you need to be funded. As you work through this form, our team is always on hand to answer your questions. In general, please plan for at least 24 hours to schedule inspections and an additional 24 hours for payment. We perform draw inspections on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
