What is the succession or partner buy-in loan process at Oak Street Funding?

The typical loan process at Oak Street Funding includes six phases:

  • Assessment – A dedicated Loan Officer will schedule a meeting to discuss your specific business goals and answer any questions you may have. This initial consultation helps us determine if our loan products are a good fit for your needs. If so, you'll be guided through the application process.
  • Application – Choose between a convenient online application or a paper form and submit initial documentation to assess whether a term sheet – a non-binding letter of intent which summarizes the important financial and legal terms as well as the amount of the loan and its repayment – can be issued.
  • Processing – Once a term sheet is agreed upon and a deposit is received, you'll submit all required loan documents through our secure MyStreet loan platform.
  • Underwriting Review: Our experienced Underwriting team will analyze all documentation and information. They may contact you for any missing details to ensure a smooth approval process.
  • Closing – After final review, you'll sign the loan documents, finalizing the agreement.
  • Funding – Upon successful closing, your loan funds will be disbursed in a timely manner.

After you receive the funds, a dedicated customer-service representative will handle your account. You will always be able to reach your assigned representative in whichever manner is best for you, such as phone, email or text. If you prefer to self-serve, you can also check the status of your loan or obtain additional information on our secure, MyStreet portal.
