Waterstone Closes on the Defeasance of a $35.6 Million Mobile Home Portfolio

CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed on the defeasance of three CMBS loans totaling $35.6 Million.  The loans were secured by a portfolio consisting of mobile home properties located in Georgia.  Waterstone guided the owners through the defeasance process coinciding with the owners’ sale of their properties.

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 defeasance of three of the client’s mobile home parks was a small part of a larger transaction.  We appreciate their confidence in our ability to work with all the parties on such an involved closing.” – Carol Tillman, COO with Waterstone

“The Waterstone team provided a very high level of service for our multiple defeasance transactions.  I found them to be very knowledgeable, efficient, and attentive to my needs.  I look forward to working with them again.” – Sami H., borrower
