Reconciling the Demands and Objectives of Senior and Junior Lenders
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will prepare real estate finance counsel to structure intercreditor agreements between senior/mezzanine and A/B lenders. The panel will discuss the most frequently negotiated provisions, and the challenges to enforcing intercreditor agreements in distressed loan scenarios.
- Key provisions of mezzanine loan intercreditor agreements
- Key provisions of co-lender agreements, including control rights of B note holders
- Participation agreements as a variation of co-lender agreements
- The role of the servicer under co-lender agreements and tensions with B note holders
- Borrower concerns and considerations
- Lender strategies for dealing with a defaulted loan
- Lessons from workouts and bankruptcies on structure, enforceability, and remedies
The panel will review these and other priority issues:
- What are the typical provisions in an intercreditor agreement or a co-lender agreement?
- What lessons from recent years influence the drafting of these agreements?
- How does the securitization of the senior loan impact the workings of these agreements and the workout of troubled loans?
- What challenges have senior and junior lenders faced when working out loans on transactions that include a mezzanine loan or B note?
- What are the payment priorities under tiered financing structures?
