  • Borrow $5,000 to $60,000
  • Terms up to 20 years
  • Up to 12 months of interest-only payments during installation, followed by standard repayment term of 3 to 20 years.
  • For most loans up to $35,000, Naveo will file a lien for equipment under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC-1) within the county the property is located.
  • For loans above $35,000 or for more than 10 years, Naveo will file a mortgage lien.
