The average size of commercial MBS loans moved into 'special servicing' has more than doubled over the past 12 months, according to Fitch Ratings.

Five of the loans newly transferred into special servicing in January had balances of more than $100 million, the rating agency said.

In total, 248 loans totaling $4.27 billion moved into special servicing during the month.

This is more than four times the balance transferred during the same month a year ago.
