FDIC’s Recommendations for Commercial Real Estate Loans Begin to Ease Borrowers’ Woes

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (FDIC) policy recommendations for banks dealing with troubled commercial real estate loans appear to be easing the burden on borrowers facing falling property values.

In October, the FDIC, along with the Board of Governors of Federal Reserve, the National Credit Union Administration and the Office of Thrift Supervision, issued a policy statement advising banks to extend and/or restructure loans backed by income-producing properties whenever possible in order to minimize losses. This approach should help banks avoid selling high quality assets in a distressed market. Instead banks will have time to wait for property values to recover.

To some, that mountain of debt coming due represents a clear parallel to the trillions of dollars in residential loans that helped destroy more than 100 banks and made the current recession the deepest and longest since the Great Depression...full story..

Fed Frets About Commercial Real Estate - Investors waiting to capitalize…

As banks continue to decrease their lending and tighten the credit crunch existing property owners scramble to refinance their ballooning debt.

GOVERNOR PATERSON SIGNS LEGISLATION TO ENHANCE HISTORIC PRESERVATION TAX CREDIT

The enhancements signed by Governor Paterson will provide the following tax incentives for qualified historic properties:

Gradually increase over five years the cap on the commercial credit value from $100,000 to $5 million and the residential credit value from $25,000 to $50,000;

Target the credit in “distressed” areas -- those located within a Census tract identified at or below one hundred percent of the median family income;

Increase the share of qualified rehabilitation costs that commercial property owners can claim for the credit from 6 percent to 20 percent; and

Offer the Preservation Tax Credit as a rebate for lower income homeowners to provide them with a stronger financial incentive with relatively smaller tax liability.
