CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $3.2 million CMBS loan, secured by a self-storage property located in Temple Hills, MD. 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 Self-Storage market has been very strong thru the Covid 19 pandemic, this customer was very focused on improving this property and despite delays, they were able to move forward and get this deal closed. Waterstone was paused more than once, but we were ready with time to spare when the transaction moved ahead.” – John Felter, Director with Waterstone.
