Debenture Bond
A long-term bond or note issued by governments and/or corporations and not secured by a mortgage or lien on any specific property. Since there is no specific property securing the debenture, the ability to repay the debt is based solely on the financial strength of the issuer.
Debt
An amount owed to another.
Debt Service
The periodic payment (monthly, quarterly, or annually) necessary to pay the interest and principal on a loan, which is being amortized over a longer term (usually 25-30 years).
Debt Service Cover Ratio (DSCR)
The relationship between the annual net operating income (NOI) of a property and the annual debt service of the mortgage loan on the property. Both Lenders and Investors calculate this ratio to assist them in determining the likelihood of the property generating enough income to pay the mortgage payments. From the lender's viewpoint, the higher the ratio, the better.
Deed
The legal document conveying title to a property.
Deed of Trust
The deed to real property, which serves the same purpose as a mortgage but instead of two parties, three parties are involved. The third party holds title for the benefit of the Lender. The Lender is called the “Beneficiary”. The Borrower is called the “Trustor”. When a loan is made, the Borrower conveys title to a third party called the Trustee who holds the title for the benefit of the Lender (although the instrument itself may remain in the Lender's possession). Some states, like California, do not record mortgages. Instead, they record a Deed of Trust which is essentially the same thing.
Deed-In-Lieu
Short for "deed in lieu of foreclosure," this conveys title to the lender when the borrower is in default and wants to avoid foreclosure. The lender may or may not cease foreclosure activities if a borrower asks to provide a deed-in-lieu. Regardless of whether the lender accepts the deed-in-lieu, the avoidance and non-repayment of debt will most likely show on a credit history. What a deed-in-lieu may prevent is having the documents preparatory to a foreclosure being recorded and become a matter of public record.
Default
Failure to make the mortgage payment within a specified period of time. For first mortgages or first trust deeds, if a payment has still not been made within 30 days of the due date, the loan is considered to be in default.
Defeasance
In defeasance, the lender replaces the cash flows of the original loan with actual Treasury Securities. The borrower pays the lender enough money to buy these securities and the lender goes out in the bond market and buys the right combination of bonds. After this is done, and the lender has a security interest in the treasuries, the property is released as collateral for the loan and the treasuries become the new loan collateral.
Delinquency
Failure to make mortgage payments when mortgage payments are due. For most mortgages, payments are due on the first day of the month. Even though they may not charge a "late fee" for a number of days, the payment is still considered to be late and the loan delinquent. When a loan payment is more than 30 days late, most lenders report the late payment to one or more credit bureaus.
Deposit
A sum of money given in advance of a larger amount being expected in the future. Often called in real estate as an "earnest money deposit."
Depreciation
A decline in the value of property; the opposite of appreciation. Depreciation is also an accounting term which shows the declining monetary value of an asset and is used as an expense to reduce taxable income. Since this is not a true expense where money is actually paid, lenders will add back depreciation expense for self-employed borrowers and count it as income.
Discount Rate
The rate of interest charged to banks that buy money from the Federal Reserve System. An increase in the rate not only discourages the banks from borrowing, but it also serves as a signal that interest rates are probably going to increase. Also, a compound interest rate used to convert expected future income into a present value income.
Down Payment
The part of the purchase price of a property that the buyer pays in cash and does not finance with a mortgage.
Due-On-Sale Provision
A provision in a mortgage that allows the lender to demand repayment in full if the borrower sells the property that serves as security for the mortgage.
