LOAN-IN-PROCESS ACCOUNT (LIP ACCOUNT) serves as a deposit account for construction funds. The buyers down payment is deposited into this account and is used for the initial construction draws. Disbursements of actual loan funds begin once the buyers money is depleted. Interest on the borrowed funds will be billed monthly on the amount withdrawn.
