Conduit CMBS Loans - What You Need To Know

What is a conduit Loan?

A conduit loan - also known as a CMBS loan (Commercial Mortgage Backed Security) - is a type of commercial mortgage that is packaged into a pool with other similar type commercial loans and securitized and sold in the secondary market to institutional investors... learn more.


Are conduit loans non-recourse?

Yes. Conduit loans require no personal guarantees. However, the key principals of the borrowing entity will be required to personally guarantee the exceptions to non-recourse (standard carveouts).


Since a conduit loan is non-recourse, do I still need to be qualified personally?

Yes. The key principals of the borrowing entity need to meet minimum credit and financial capacity requirements.


What is defeasance?

Defeasance is technically not a prepayment penalty. It refers to a process where there is a substitution of collateral (U.S. government securities) that is sufficient to make all of the remaining loan payments. The securities are pledged to the lender and the lender releases the lien on the property.


What is yield maintenance?

Yield maintenance is a type of prepayment premium or penalty which allows the lender to earn their original yield (interest payments) without suffering any loss should the loan be prepaid prior to the end of the term of the loan. To calculate a yield maintenance premium, take the present value of remaining loan payments multiplied by the difference between the loan interest rate and the rate on a Treasury note of the same duration, or use our yield maintenance calculator.


What does CMBS stand for?

CMBS stands for Commercial Mortgage Backed Security. Conduit loans are pooled and securitized with the underlying mortgages serving as collateral for the mortgage backed securities.


Conduit CMBS loans may not be available in all locations. Eligible property types, loan programs and program guidelines (including, without limit, minimum loan size, LTV, rates and terms) are subject to change without notice and may vary depending on property location, economic conditions, exposure, and other variables that may negatively influence risk.
