This program is postponed. New date TBD.
A live 90-minute premium CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will be a timely update on the high volatility commercial real estate (HVCRE) regime. Our panel will discuss Basel III requirements and exemptions for HVCRE loans, and the recent reforms to Dodd-Frank which modify those requirements for acquisition, development or
construction (ADC) loans. The program will also discuss how lenders are revising covenants in loan documentation in response to the HVCRE rules and the uncertainties facing borrowers.
- Basel III rules
- Definition of an HVCRE loan
- Exemption criteria
- Impact on real estate and construction lending landscape
- Outstanding issues addressed by bank regulator FAQs
- Contributing additional capital to an existing HVCRE loan
- Grandfathering of current ADC loans
- Cash provided by the second mortgage on a property
- As-stabilized value
- Land committed to a new development
- Soft costs as contributed capital
- Subsequent appraisal/valuation resulting in LTV no longer exceeding maximum LTV ration
- Contributed capital remaining in the project
- Impact of mezzanine debt
- Typical loan covenants addressing HVCRE rules
- Borrower concerns
The panel will review these and other critical issues:
- Can the borrower contribute additional capital to an existing HVCRE loan after funds have been advanced to exclude the loan from the definition of HVCRE?
- Can the as-stabilized value be used to determine whether the loan is an HVCRE exposure?
- Are soft costs part of the borrower's contributed capital as development expenses?
- If land purchased with cash is subsequently contributed to a new development, does it count as contributed capital?
