CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $7.7 million Freddie Mac loan, secured by a multifamily property located in Tallahassee, Florida. 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.
“The sale of the client’s 344-unit student housing complex located in Tallahassee drove the defeasance. The borrower retired over $7M in agency debt with the sale.
