Defeasance

« Back to Glossary Index

The process of releasing a borrower from its debt obligation (mortgage loan) and substituting the lien on the property with acceptable replacement collateral (typically treasury bonds). This replacement collateral is expected to generate a comparable substitute cash flow, which would otherwise be required on the existing debt were it not prepaid.
