CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $5.3 million CMBS loan, secured by an industrial property in Campbell, CA. 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.
“We were very excited to assist our client with closing this transaction, especially during these unprecedented times. It is unclear how the market will look in a few months, and which property types will continue to suffer, but I believe it is safe to say industrial will continue to hold strong and be a great investment. We look forward to the continued relationship and working with all parties again soon.” – Addison McMillan, Director with Waterstone
“My experience with Waterstone was excellent. They were very attentive to my needs and extremely knowledgeable and professional. I would certainly recommend their defeasance services.” – Nancy B., Borrower’s Counsel.
