A7a2011.pdf -- The National 7(a) Authorization Boilerplate

The Boilerplate -- not the Wizard -- is the reference document pertaining to the Authorization.

Tip -- If you have already installed the 7a wizard on your workstation, you can also access the Boilerplate via the 7a wizard menu in MS-Word. On the other hand, if you just want to view or print the Boilerplate without installing the Wizard, this section is for you.

The Boilerplate contains the following information:

  • A 'Read This First' section covering general information about the Authorization, as well as the differences between this version and the previous version.

  • The Authorization standardized text itself, on which the 7a Wizard is based.

  • Appendix A: The standardized text for Collateral Conditions.

  • Appendix B: A description of state specific options within the Collateral Conditions.

  • Appendix C: A list of Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) pertaining to the Authorization.

  • Appendix D: Sample Loan Agreement and Borrower's Certification.
