What Is SBA Form 1059?

SBA Form 1059, Security Agreement is a form that grants a security interest in the Borrower or Guarantor's personal guaranty as described in the agreement with the Certified Development Company (CDC) - or the Secured Party. The form is optional for Small Business Administration (SBA) 7(a) loans but is mandatory for all 504 loans.

The SBA released the latest edition of the form in February 2004 with all previous releases obsolete. The most recent SBA Form 1059 fillable version is available for download and digital filing below:

CDCs may substitute a provision or several provisions of the SBA security agreement. To do so, the CDC’s council must issue a legal opinion to the SBA concluding that use of these provisions would jeopardize the security interest securing the loan or conflict with State law.
