A credit tenant loan (CTL) is a real estate loan that is secured by the obligation of a single investment grade company to pay debt service by means of rental payments under a high quality lease or through a recourse loan obligation.
Requirements for a credit tenant loan include investment grade tenant, fully amortizing preferred, or up to 35% of the loan balloon, and bond, absolute net, or double net lease. Typical attributes of a credit tenant loan include debt service coverage as low as 1.0x-1.05x rent (depending on lease quality), and high loan-to-value ratios based on MAI appraised value. CTL also includes potentially all property types and uses, depending on the strength of credit tenant. Physical condition assessments are required for double net leases only and seismic reports are required in areas with seismic risk. While transaction ratings and specialty insurance to cover casualty and condemnation risk is not required, phase I environmental and MAI appraisals are required. CTL prefer locations in primary and secondary markets, but may permit tertiary markets depending on credit quality. Investment grade tenants can be public or private companies, national or regional in operation, and must have the ability to get audited financial statements.
A credit tenant loan is $2 million and up and can rate lock at application. CTLs are fully amortizing or covered balloon exposure at maturity. Special purpose entity or single asset entity is preferred, but not mandatory, as well as trustee structure, depending on each transaction. Construction permanent loan capabilities have different guidelines, with up to 18 months for construction period and a minimum loan of $7 million. A long-term credit tenant loan program enables a borrower to receive the highest loan proceeds that a property’s rent payments can handle. The fixed rent payments defined in the lease generally amortize the greater part of the balance of the loan during the term of the lease, which is usually 20 years. A single-tenant lease property’s qualifications are similar to CTL’s program, but the tenant should be rated BBB- (Standard & Poor’s) or Baa3 (Moody’s) or better. Credit tenants with BBB- or Baa3 ratings may also qualify for financing. Special provisions may be available to facilitate sales.
