Float-to-Fixed-rate Loan (Two-Plus-Seven)

We call the float-to-fixed-rate loan a “two-plus-seven” because payments during the first two years of the loan are floating-rate and interest-only and the following seven years of the loan are fixed-rate. The Borrower receives superior cash-on-cash returns through the first two years and can lock a coupon for the life of the loan at the initial closing.

    • Freddie Mac must receive request for additional proceeds no less than 150 days prior to conversion.
    • For securitization purposes, updated third-party reports required prior to fixed-rate period conversion; third-party reports paid by Freddie Mac unless additional proceeds are requested.
    • If original loan fails to meet Freddie Mac’s credit parameters at conversion, Freddie Mac retains the right to restructure the transaction via a split note at time of securitization.
    • Supplemental loans are allowed beginning the second year of the fixed-rate period.

In its prequalifying review, Lument will attempt to estimate both the loan amount and the fees and costs associated with the transaction. Actual loan amounts and actual fees and expenses may vary from the prequalifying estimates. A prequalifying estimate is not a commitment to make a loan.
