Since a large amount of maturing debt is backed by collateral with eroded credit quality, the number of loans with missed maturity payments will continue to push the rate up.
New York, New York (PRWEB) March 03, 2017
Trepp, LLC, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the CMBS, commercial real estate, and banking markets, released its February 2017 US CMBS Delinquency Report today. The report can be found here: http://info.trepp.com/february-2017-us-cmbs-delinquency-report-press-release.
The Trepp CMBS Delinquency Rate rose in February after a slight drop in the month prior. The delinquency rate for US commercial real estate loans in CMBS is now 5.31%, up 13 basis points from January. This is the tenth monthly rate increase in the past 12 periods, as loans from 2006 and 2007 continue to reach their maturity dates without payoffs via refinancing. The delinquency rate is now 116 basis points higher than the year-ago level.
Over $2.3 billion in CMBS loans became newly delinquent in February, the second straight month where that total exceeded $2 billion. About $1.3 billion in CMBS loans that were previously delinquent paid off with a loss or at par last month. Over $850 million in loans were cured in February.
“Loan delinquencies remain on the upswing as the wave of maturities continues to run its course,” said Manus Clancy, Senior Managing Director at Trepp. “Since a large amount of maturing debt is backed by collateral with eroded credit quality, the number of loans with missed maturity payments will continue to push the rate up.”
The office sector accounted for the lion’s share of new delinquencies last month, evidenced by the sector’s reading. The office delinquency rate jumped 54 basis points to 7.65% in February, the largest increase of all major property types. The retail sector underwent the biggest improvement last month, as it shed 17 basis points to 5.93%. The lodging delinquency rate dropped 13 basis points to 3.43%.
