The California commercial loan delinquency ratio was below one-half of 1% in the third quarter for the 24th consecutive quarter, according to the California Mortgage Bankers Association.The Sept. 30 Quarterly Delinquency Survey found that 99.8% of the California commercial real estate loans serviced by 18 mortgage banking firms were either current or delinquent by only one payment. This represents a delinquency ratio of 0.24%, compared with 0.33% three months ago and 0.24% a year ago. Sixteen of the 18 companies reported no loans more than 30 days delinquent. Of the $60.7 billion of loans being serviced by the 18 mortgage bankers, 15 loans totaling $143.1 million were two or more payments past due. The 15 delinquent loans represent 0.15% of the 9,884 commercial real estate loans included in the survey. For survey purposes, a loan is considered delinquent if it is two or more payments past due, although loans in foreclosure are included regardless of the number of payments past due.
