Trepp US CMBS Delinquency Rate Inches Higher In March

NEW YORK, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trepp, LLC, the leading provider of information, analytics and technology to the CMBS, commercial real estate and banking markets, released its March 2013 U.S. CMBS Delinquency Report today (available at http://www.trepp.com/knowledge/research).

The delinquency rate for U.S. commercial real estate loans in CMBS inched higher by eight basis points in March to 9.50% after reaching the lowest level in a year last month. Overall, the rate has fallen 84 basis points since hitting its all-time peak of 10.34% at the end of July 2012.

Loan resolutions continued to drop in March, falling from just under a billion dollars in February to almost $850 million. There were $2.8 billion in newly delinquent loans reported in March, up slightly from the previous month. There are currently $52.1 billion in U.S. CMBS loans 30 or more days delinquent, excluding loans that are past their balloon date but current on interest payments. There are about 3,300 loans totaling $64.8 billion currently in special servicing.

"A close examination of the data reveals that the weakening experienced in March is not nearly as worrisome as it seems," said Manus Clancy, senior managing direction of Trepp. "The jump in the rate was caused primarily by a reversal of status of a number of floating rate hotel loans." 

Among the five major property types, hotel loans led the pack for a second month in a row, but this time for the wrong reason. Lodging saw a 174 basis point weakening between February and March. As Trepp noted last month, many large hotel loans "cured" in February by being categorized as "performing matured balloons" instead of "non-performing matured balloons." Many of these loans were reclassified again in March as "non-performing matured balloons." While both categories include loans that are past their maturity dates, performing matured balloons have interest payments being made and thus are not counted as delinquent.
