What is a Future Advance?

A future advance is a common clause added to loan agreements that allows the borrower access to additional funds under the same loan agreement. A future advance clause is often included in mortgage contracts. Home equity loans and home equity lines of credit are two examples of future advances. Mortgages aren’t the only agreements that use future advances. Businesses that are taking on a long-term project may also secure a loan with a future advance clause. This allows a business to begin a project and have access to more capital as it hits certain milestones.
