Future Advance Obligations in Commercial Mortgage Finance: Structuring, Co-Lender and Securitization Issues
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the mechanics of future advance clauses in commercial real estate lending. The panel will analyze the types of events future advance clauses typically address, the draw conditions which must be negotiated between the parties, and the complex dynamics of making additional loan disbursements where the loan has been syndicated or securitized.
- Future advance clauses in the current lending environment
- Conditions for future advances
- Tenant buildout and other capital expenditures
- Additional collateral
- Earnout based on financial parameters: occupancy, DSCR
- Approval and disbursement of the future advance
- Title issues
- Consent from other lenders
- Securitization issues
- Bifurcating the initial and future advance with separate notes
- Servicing issues in the event of default
- Applying prepayments
The panel will review these and other important questions:
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of a future advance clause vs. an earnout reserve funded at closing?
- What are the different types of conditions attached to future advances, and what are the key drafting points?
- How should approval and disbursement of a future advance be documented in the loan structure with multiple lenders?
- Why should the initial advance and future advance be bifurcated for securitization purposes, and what other issues need to be addressed?
