Following 2020 YTD peak in CMBS special servicing rate in September, the number has inched down in October. The Trepp CMBS Special Servicing rate saw a reduction of 20 basis points in October, coming in at 10.3 percent, in comparison to 10.5 percent in September. This change can be attributed in part to loans that have been granted forbearances and are now being transferred out of special servicing and returned to the master servicer. 

In terms of the property types, the reduction is on account of a decrease in the lodging and retail special servicing rates. The lodging special servicing rate came in at 25.5 percent, down from 59 basis points from the number in September. The retail special servicing rate clocked in at 18.0 percent, seeing a downtick from 18.3 percent in September.

This is the first month in which CMBS delinquency rates (which saw a reduction of 64 basis points from the September number) and CMBS special servicing rate, both witnessed a decline.

The Trepp Special Servicing rate saw an increase of 44 basis points in September, coming in at 10.5 percent, compared to 10.0 percent in August. Like the last few months, the surge could be attributed mainly to an increase in the retail and lodging special servicing rates. The retail special servicing rate clocked in at 18.3 percent in September, up from 17.3 percent in August.

The lodging special servicing rate came in at 26.0 percent, up from 25 percent in August. Both the lodging and retail CMBS special servicing rates were the highest reported on record. The overall CMBS special servicing rate is the highest rate recorded since May 2013. Going forward, it is likely that the special servicing rate will continue to increase in the coming months.

The Trepp Special Servicing rate saw an increase of 55 basis points in the month of August, coming in at 10.0 percent, in comparison to 9.5 percent in the month prior.

The lodging special servicing rate, which saw the second highest increase amongst all property types, came in at 25.0 percent, up from 24.3 percent in the month prior. 

In the month of August, Trepp data recorded another reduction in delinquency rate which was recorded at 9.0 percent. The delinquency rate saw a high of 10.3 percent in July this year. Since then, a number of loans that were marked delinquent have been cured (reverted to current status). Some of these cures came as a result of forbearances being granted and borrowers being authorized to use reserves to make the loan current. In other cases, relief was canceled or withdrawn by the borrowers and the loans were brought current without relief.
