The Five Largest Office Loans That Are Now 90+ Days Delinquent
Following our recent coverage of loans marked 90+ days behind payment (delinquent) in the retail and multifamily sectors, we are back this week with a focus on the office commercial real estate market. The sector has seen a marginal increase in delinquency rates since January, not yet facing significant distress. In fact, in July the office CMBS delinquency rate declined by 26 basis points to 2.40%.

While most of the loans in the office CMBS universe have continued to make timely payments, some have not.
