back-to-back commitment


A commitment to make a second loan when the terms of a first loan are satisfied. One common type of back-to-back commitment involves replacing a construction loan with a first mortgage. A bank may extend a construction loan to build a house, with the understanding that once the house is built, the construction loan will be paid off and replaced by a mortgage.
