CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $4.0 million CMBS loan, secured by an industrial property in Charlotte, NC. Waterstone guided the owners through the defeasance process coinciding with the owners’ refinance of their loan.
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 happy to be able to assist our client with this closing. It did see some delays only related to site inspections due to restricted travel around Covid-19 precautions. The client had locked in their rate with their new lender early and were able to close smoothly despite the current climate. Industrial properties continue to increase in value mainly due to the surge in ecommerce and we expect this to continue and industrial markets will remain strong.” – Addison McMillan, Director with Waterstone
