If you are a lender with a borrower who has defaulted on a loan secured by land, you may wonder what options you have. Land can be foreclosed on, even if there is no structure on the land. Land can be agricultural, vacant urban plots, or commercial plots with environmental stipulations. Many real estate investors may add a land trust to their investments to diversify their assets. Additionally, land trusts are often more complicated to foreclose than traditional commercial real estate. A trustee partner with a professional understanding of land trusts and foreclosures is the best partner for lenders dealing with delinquent borrowers.
In Texas, multifamily homes are facing increased delinquency and foreclosure rates. For lenders with a portfolio of multifamily dwellings in Texas, preparation is crucial for the upcoming months. Many of the lingering effects of the Covid-19 pandemic are only now beginning to rear their heads. The foreclosure of 3,200 units by the Arbor Realty Trust due to the delinquency of the Applesway Investment Group in Houston is predicted to be the launching point of more multifamily apartments foreclosing in Texas. Already, more borrowers are facing foreclosure.
For more than 35 years, Total Lender Solutions has served commercial lenders in nonjudicial foreclosures, reconveyances, and UCC sales. We keep lenders educated about foreclosure law so they may face the incoming increased rate of foreclosures.

Reasons for Increased Multifamily Apartments Foreclosing in Texas
Increased Interest Rate: The pandemic saw an increase in loan servicing on Class A apartments, which caused investors to seek out Class B and C units, which increased cap rates to those of Class A. Now, loans on Class C apartments that were bought at the top of the market during the pandemic are falling into delinquency due to rising interest rates.
Capital Expenditures: Many borrowers that find themselves with Class C units in their portfolio are now finding themselves with apartments with similar cap rates to Class A apartments, and yet are finding that these apartments are impossible to keep occupied and maintained at a profit.
Government Policies: The Texas eviction moratorium made it impossible for borrowers to evict those who are behind on their rent, making it harder for them to receive income and pay their bills. Many borrowers are facing delinquency as moratoriums are set to lift nationwide.
If you are a lender facing potentially overwhelming foreclosures ahead of you, a foreclosure service is the best solution to protect your assets and complete the process effectively.
