Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide a timely update regarding high-volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) loans, as well as regulatory requirements relating to nonperforming real estate loans, and options for lenders, borrowers, and investors relating to nonperforming loans. Our panel will discuss regulatory requirements for HVCRE loans and the HVCRE exemption criteria. The program will also discuss (1) how lenders are currently revising covenants in loan documentation, (2) regulatory requirements for nonperforming loans, and (3) the current options for loans that do not comply with the regulatory requirements.

- What is the impact of mezzanine debt and preferred equity?
- What are a lender’s options, with respect to HVCRE loans, and other loans that do not comply with regulatory requirements, such as (1) selling such loans, (2) selling a subordinated portion of an existing loan and retaining a remaining portion that complies with the HVCRE and other regulatory rules, and (3) getting more capital in order to meet capital requirements?
- What are the available borrower options, which may include (1) refinancing with non-bank lenders, (2) funding from new equity investors, (3) a capital call to existing investors, and (4) a long-term net lease of the mortgaged property to a third party that provides additional capital?
