Diamond Resorts ups reserve accounts for timeshare ABS

Asset Securitization Report - 11/20/2017
Kroll Bond Rating Agency has upgraded $95 million of bonds backed by Diamond Resorts timeshare loans – but not because of any steps the company’s new management has taken to reform its business practices. In fact, defaults on loans used as collateral for the four tranches across two deals, Diamond Resorts Owner Trust 2015-1 and 2015-2, continue to mount as borrowers upset by the company’s high-pressure sales tactics seek legal representation and, in many cases, stop making payments.

Storms may push CRT late payments up 35%-40% in September, says Kroll

Asset Securitization Report - 11/17/2017
Nearly two months after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma struck Texas and Florida, causing billions of dollars of property damage, there’s still little information on how securities that reinsure mortgages for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac might be impacted. Hurricane Harvey made mainland U.S. landfall on Aug. 25 and Hurricane Irma on Sept. 11th, so the first payment date where borrowers in those areas may be affected would be Sept. 1. However, Fannie and Freddie report 30-day delinquencies with a two-month lag, so that information will not be available until the end of this month. Kroll Bond Rating, which rates many of these securities, has cobbled mortgage servicer remittance reports to come up with its own estimates. It thinks that late payments on mortgages reinsured through Freddie’s bellwether Structured Agency Credit Risk may have risen by 35% to 40%, albeit off a very low base, leaving the average delinquency rate under 1.0%. Moreover, Kroll expects that much of the impact will prove to be temporary, and is unlikely to result in ratings downgrades.
