The Benefits of Credit Tenant Lease (CTL) Loans for Single Tenant, NNN Leased Real Estate

Credit tenant lease (CTL) lending has several distinct advantages over traditional commercial mortgage lending. No one type of financing is right for every situation but CTL should be considered whenever investors are buying, refinancing or building single tenant real estate that is , net leased (triple net (NNN), double net (NN) or bondable) to investment grade tenants.

Non Recourse – The sponsor / borrower is not underwritten and will not be on the hook if a loans defaults. If the tenant and the lease pass muster, the loan will close.

Speed – CTL loans have been known to close in 45 days from start to finish (60 days is typical). Conventional commercial mortgages can take 90-180 days to fund and close.

High Leverage – CTL bankers place no restrictions on loan-to-value (LTV) or loan-to-cost (LTC). If the debt service is covered (1-1.05x debt-service-coverage-ratio [DSCR]) by the rent CTL lenders will lend up to 100% LTV or LTC. CTL, without question, offers the highest loan balances in the commercial mortgage industry.

Fixed Rate – Rates on CTL loans are generally fixed for the entire life of the deal.

Self Amortizing – CTL mortgages are fully amortized with a term that is co-terminus with the lease. Borrowers won’t have to worry about coming up with large balloon payments or refinancing every 3, 5, 7 or 10 years.

Straight Forward Process – If the tenant is investment grade (BBB+ or better by S&P or Ba1 or better by Moody’s, or the equivalent), the property is stand-alone, single tenant and the deal carries a long term, net lease, CTL offers a very, very high degree of financing certainty.

Liquidity – There is no shortage of liquidity in the CTL sector of the commercial mortgage lending industry. Billions of dollars are available right now to finance single tenant, net leased, credit tenant real estate and bankers are actually eager to lend.
