All CMBS mortgages are governed by your specific mortgage documents. If your mortgage documents do not allow for prepayment of yield maintenance, your mortgage may need to be defeased. If you have sold your property, the purchaser may wish to assume your mortgage (subject to qualification). Please contact a Portfolio Manager at 1.800.465.0039 to review your mortgage documents and to discuss your options.
Defeasance is the process of substituting one type of collateral for another. Borrowers replace their real estate collateral with a portfolio of government-backed securities. This portfolio is structured so that the proceeds generated from the securities is sufficient to cover all of the remaining debt service payments on a Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities (CMBS) loan.
Defeasance gives borrowers the flexibility to sell or refinance their mortgaged property when their loan has been sold into securitizations.
