Lenders require landlord waivers to avoid or minimize losses for businesses with bad credit or slow pay as well as default on previous loans.   Many business loans include collateral that is on the premises of the borrower.   The landlord waiver allows the lender to enter the property and obtain the collateral in the event of a default.   If the lender did not have a signed landlord waiver, they could not enter the place of business of the borrower to take their collateral.

Without the landlord waiver, the lender cannot legally enter and repossess collateral.  The owner of the property can seek recourse against any lender entering the premises without permission of the landlord.  There are some business loans in which a lender asks for a landlord waiver but does not consider it critical for the loan.    This requirement is one of the top customer complaints with business loans.

A lender normally considers a landlord waiver absolutely critical if they ask for it and will not fund a transaction without the waiver.     Lenders worry that a landlord will refuse to allow them on the business property.   If this happens, the lender may not be able to recover their collateral if there is a default.
Why do I need to get a Landlord waiver?

In the vending industry, lenders that finance multiple vending machines will not fund transactions without all of the required landlord waivers.   Lenders that finance vending machines know that if they finance 10 vending machines, those 10 machines may be in 10 different locations throughout a metropolitan area.   If the borrower defaults, the lender would have to go to 10 locations to pick up the collateral.   They also cannot simply show up at a place of business to pick up collateral.   They must also have to have permission from the owner of the property because they will be uninstalling equipment, which is considered making a change to a property.   The lessee agrees in the lease not to make a change in the property without the permission of the landlord, so the lessee is obligated to contact the landlord.

What is a landlord waiver? Are landlord waivers required for a business loan?

In the event of a default on this asset based loan lenders do not want to contact 10 different landlords.    Each landlord would have to agree to an on site repossession.    The landlords know if they agree, those business that leases space from them may go out of business.

The landlord does not want the lessee to go out of business.    The landlord may want to deny the request.

These are the reasons why lenders will ask for and also obtain a landlord waiver when a business loan is first closed.
