It may be possible to re-negotiate the terms of a loan with the current lender, even if the loan is in default. In fact, in June, 2023, a formal policy was put in place by the Federal Reserve, FDIC, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the National Credit Union Administration to guide financial institutions on commercial real estate loan workouts. A loan workout can result in more favorable terms, increased cash flow, or a lower payoff amount. With our extensive experience representing lenders, White Knight Real Estate Solutions possesses valuable insight into their operations, allowing us to effectively leverage our expertise for the benefit of our clients.
Borrowers in today's market face significant challenges when it comes to refinancing their loans.

White Knight Real Estate Solutions has a network of high net worth individuals, family offices and funds that focus exclusively on rescue capital.
