Commercial Real Estate Lending: Property Types, Lease Structures and Other Non-Financial Risks

Commercial and industrial (C&I) lenders know that non-financial factors such as the borrower’s industry, its competitive market, and its management team play a key role in the ongoing success of the business, as well as timely loan repayment. Commercial real estate (CRE) loans have similar non-financial factors or issues, including the type of property (similar to C&I industry risk), ability to successfully re-lease the property over the loan term (competitive market), and proper management and maintenance of the physical facility.

As banks continue to deal directly with CRE loans as a major portion of their loan portfolios, plus indirectly through income-producing or rental real estate holdings that affect customers, it is important to “get beyond the numbers” and assess the qualitative or non-financial factors that influence CRE performance over time.
