What is a note?
A note is simply a promise to repay a loan. In the note industry, this promise is in the form of a contract in which one party (the borrower) agrees to repay a certain portion of the loan to the other party (the lender) within a set period of time and under specific terms (including interest rate on the loan, penalties for late payments, etc.).
Why are notes discounted?
Notes may be discounted for a variety of reasons, such as performance, value, condition, and status of the property or borrower.
How is my note investment secured?
When a note and mortgage (or deed of trust) is first originated, the recording of the mortgage perfects the collateral (the property) for the lender. If and when the note and mortgage are ever sold by the bank in the future, a new assignment of mortgage is drawn up and recorded in the county courthouse where the mortgaged property is located. Once recorded, this transfer of the mortgage to a new owner is now public record.
What do I do if my note stops performing?
If a performing note is purchased directly from PPR, it is immediately covered by a performance note warranty. In this instance, PPR will attempt to get the asset re-performing within a certain period or will issue a cash refund for the remaining principal investment (minus payments received) in exchange for the return of the non-performing note and collateral. If the note is purchased from another source, the note buyer would typically initiate legal action and work the loan like any non-performing note.
What are tax implications of note investing?
Although PPR does not offer accounting advice, when an investor owns an individual note and is receiving payments, the interest portion of monthly payments are taxed as interest income. If an investor sells or cashes out of a note, it’s either a short-term or long time capital gain/loss depending on whether you owned the note longer than a year.
