CHARLOTTE, NC: Waterstone Defeasance recently closed a defeasance transaction for a $23.7 million CMBS loan, secured by a retail property in Ennis, Texas. 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.
“Many CVS and Walgreens stores, while not encumbered with CMBS debt, still require defeasance as the form of prepayment. Our client continues to acquire and restructure their portfolio. We greatly appreciate his continued confidence in our defeasance services.” – Carol Tillman, COO with Waterstone Defeasance
