CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $6.4 million CMBS loan, secured by a retail property in Winfield, IL. Waterstone guided the owners through the defeasance process coinciding with the owners’ sale of their property.
As the defeasance consultant, Waterstone managed the activities of the numerous parties involved with the transaction in order to meet the borrower’s closing schedule. Parties associated with a defeasance transaction typically include the servicer, servicer’s counsel, borrower, borrower’s counsel, securities broker, custodian, accountant, rating agencies, and the successor borrower.
“With the market fluctuating so drastically over the last several months, the borrower continued to push the closing of the sale. Once they proceeded, they were pleased that Waterstone’s process and vast experience helped lower the cost of the securities. We look forward to working with these folks on their next transaction.” – Carol Tillman, COO with Waterstone
“Thank you Waterstone for making this an informative and pleasant defeasance experience. You proved to be experts in the field and were very attentive to my needs. Job well done!”– Robert D., Borrower
