Real Estate Based Debt-on-Debt Lending (A.K.A. “Leverage Loans” or “Loan on Loan Financing”) – This presentation will explain the basic structure of a medium to long term debt on debt loan secured by an underlying loan which is secured by real property.  It will include comparisons to alternative financing structures (i.e. A/B Loans, Mezzanine Loans and Syndications) as well as fundamental benefits and downsides to the use of a debt-on-debt structure from the perspectives of each of the underlying borrower, direct lender and the leverage loan lender.  In addition to the above, the presentation will address some commonly encountered issues and unique features of debt-on-debt loan origination, including the relationship between the leveraged lender and underlying borrower, loan servicing, default scenarios under the debt-on-debt loan and under the underlying loan, unique debt-on-debt guaranty issues and title insurance.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
