First Priority Mortgage Lien Position

Seniority

The first-priority mortgage lien position is the most senior and highest priority within the capital structure.

All subordinated positions, including the amount held by the Originator and its investor syndicate, act as a buffer in the event of a deterioration in the Properties’ value.

Personal Guarantee

Personal Guarantee

The Loans are personally guaranteed by the borrower, spouse, and all principals in the LLC.
