§500.210   Assignment or transfer of loans.

(b) Under no circumstances will the Board permit an assignment or transfer of less than 100 percent of a Lender's interest in the Loan Documents and Guarantee, nor will it permit an assignment or transfer to be made to a party which the Board determines not to be an Eligible Lender pursuant to §500.201.

(c) The proscription under paragraph (a) of this section shall not apply to:

(1) Transfers which occur by operation of law, unless a primary purpose of the transaction leading to such a transfer was to assign, convey or sell the loan note or Guarantee without the necessity of securing the Board's prior written approval; or

(2) An action or agreement by the Lender which has the effect of distributing the risks of the credit among other Lenders if:

(i) Neither the loan note nor the Guarantee is assigned, conveyed, sold, or transferred in whole or in part;

(ii) Both the unguaranteed and guaranteed portions of the loan are treated in the same manner;

(iii) The Lender remains solely responsible for the administration of the loan; and

(iv) The Board's ability to assert any and all defenses available to it under the Guarantee and the law is not adversely affected; or

(3) Transfer by a non-Agent Lender of the non-guaranteed portion of the loan after payment under the Guarantee has been made.
