What is Defeasance? Defeasance is a form of a prepayment fee on conduit loans
redeemed prior to maturity.
Prepayment options for fixed rate conduit loans include defeasance, declining
fixed percentages and two yield maintenance options.
Defeasance allows the borrower to purchase
substitute collateral for the conduit loan. With
conduit loan defeasance, single or multiple US
Treasury securities with varying maturities must
be purchased in order to complete the
defeasance. There is no minimum prepayment under
Conduit Loan Defeasance, and in some
circumstances, the borrower could actually
receive a payment when the conduit loan is
Yield Maintenance is based on a minimum yield
to the investor that purchased the conduit loan
(or the Fannie Mae security backed by the loan)
and is basically the present value of the
difference between the conduit loan’s interest
rate and current rates with a similar maturity
date as the original conduit loan. Historically,
Yield Maintenance terms have been 6 months less
than the actual conduit loan term.
