In the latest ACMA Community Blog post, Fellow Ken Miller describes changes to High Volatility Commercial Real Estate (HVCRE) rules that were enacted in recent amendments to the Dodd-Frank Act.

Miller writes that despite some remaining ambiguities, "it appears the revised rules for HVCRE loans have greatly reduced much of the uncertainties found in the original rules."  These changes, he notes, benefit both banks and real property developers, and the blog helps readers understand those benefits. Miller concludes that the new rules are "a great improvement" over the prior rules "by resolving much of the confusion" that previously existed. But, he cautions, "further clarification is necessary."
