Third Party Reports
Standard third-party reports, including Appraisal, Phase 1 Environmental Assessment, and a Property Condition.
Debt Coverage Ratio
  • 1.00x, using a DSCR calculated based on a variable underwriting rate equal to sum of (i) the Index, plus (ii) the investor spread, guaranty fee and servicing fee (the “Margin”), plus (iii) the interest rate cap escrow (if the cap term is shorter than the loan term), plus (iv) 3%, plus (v) the amortizing constant for that built-up rate.
  • Mortgage loan amount shall not exceed that of a fixed-rate loan of similar terms.
Rate Index
One month or three month LIBOR.
Interest Rate Adjustments
  • Interest rate adjusts based on changes to the underlying Index and is equal to the Index plus the Margin. In no event shall the interest rate ever be less than the Margin.
  • No limit on rate changes.
Interest Rate Cap
  • Structured ARMs have no built-in periodic or lifetime caps. Instead, the Borrower must purchase an interest rate cap from an approved interest rate cap provider.
  • The term of the initial interest rate cap need not be equal to the term of the Mortgage Loan, but must be for at least 5 years.
  • If the mortgage loan term is longer than the interest rate cap term, the Borrower must escrow monthly for the purchase of the next interest rate cap.
Interest Rate Floor
The interest rate shall never be less than the Margin.
Rate Lock
30- to 180-day commitments. An early rate lock feature is available, allowing the borrower to lock a rate after preliminary underwriting.
Convert to Fixed Rate
Loans have a conversion feature whereby the interest rate may be converted to a 7- or 10-year fixed-rate loan on any rate change date beginning with the first day of the second loan year and ending on the first day of the third month prior to maturity, provided the loan has not been delinquent during the previous 12 months and the Borrower is not in default under any loan documents.

• No prepayment penalty charged at the time the ARM converts to a Fixed Rate.
• Minimal re-underwriting; Lender determines that the current NOI can support the new Fixed Rate.
• No increase in the loan amount; loan may be eligible for a Supplemental loan.
