The 30-day delinquency rate on securitized multifamily mortgages hit 9.87% in February, up 16 basis points from January, according to Trepp.
The expected default on the Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village apartments in Manhattan could push the delinquency rate close to 13%, according to the New York firm, which tracks CMBS performance.
The owners are still current on the $3 billion in mortgage debt. But they have nearly depleted the 11,000-unit complex's reserves in making the last payment, according to Trepp analysts. The Trepp report shows that the 30-day or more past due delinquency on all securitized multifamily and commercial mortgages hit 6.72% in February, up from 1.67% a year ago.
The serious delinquency rate (60-days or more past) on CMBS is 5.97%, up from 1.3% a year ago.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. recently reported that 1.2% of multifamily mortgages held by banks and thrifts are 30-89 days past due. The delinquency rate on other commercial mortgages is 1.24% as of Dec. 31.
