STG Letter of Credit Endorsement Guideline 1

Explanation:

This endorsement is requested if the mortgage secures a reimbursement agreement executed in connection with the issuance of a letter of credit at the request of the mortgagor. Typically, the letter of credit reimbursement agreement will constitute a mandatory advance that should have priority over subsequent advances or over a subsequent bankruptcy of the mortgagor (according to some cases).

Underwriting Requirements:

(1) Review of the reimbursement agreement and related documents to verify that the reimbursement agreement secures the obligations in connection with a current letter of credit issued on behalf of the mortgagor.
(2) The mortgage should reflect that it secures the reimbursement agreement.
(3) A Senior Underwriter must approve issuance of the endorsement.
