NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Trepp, LLC, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the structured finance, commercial real estate, and banking markets, has released its January 2020 US CMBS Special Servicing Report. The full report can be accessed here:

The Trepp Special Servicing rate came in at 2.78% in January, a decline of 14 basis points from the previous month. All property types saw a decline in their special servicing rates, with the multifamily sector seeing the largest drop of 32 basis points.

The special servicing rate for CMBS 2.0+ notes saw an increase of five basis points. This was mainly on account of a 31 basis point spike in the retail special servicing rate. In the legacy CMBS universe, the overall special servicing rate witnessed a drastic drop of 349 basis points, coming in at 43.99% this
month. This was due to significant declines in the multifamily, retail and lodging rates.

"The number of loans newly transferred to special servicing significantly rose last month, with a total of 34 loans sent to special servicing in comparison to 14 the month before," said Trepp Research Analyst, Jyoti Yadav. "Together, these loans hold an outstanding balance of $649.1 million."
