Fitch Affirms FREMF 2012-K23 & Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Ctfs, Series K-023

NEW YORK--()--Fitch Ratings has affirmed all six classes of FREMF 2012-K23 multifamily mortgage pass-through certificates and three classes of Freddie Mac structured pass-through certificates, series K-023. A detailed list of rating actions follows at the end of this release.

KEY RATINGS DRIVERS

The affirmations are based on overall stable performance of the underlying collateral pool. As of the November 2014 remittance, the pool's aggregate principal balance has been paid down by 0.8% to $1.357 billion from $1.369 billion at issuance. Fourteen of the Top 15 loans (93% of the pool) reported full-year 2013 financials. The pool's overall net operating income (NOI) has been stable with a 5.3% increase based on 2013 reported NOI when compared to the previous year's reported metrics. The pool has no Fitch Loans of Concern, servicer watchlist, or specially serviced loans.

The affirmations of the Freddie K-032 certificates are the result of the pass-through nature of the certificates, as they are dependent on the underlying ratings of corresponding classes of FREMF 2012-K23.

RATINGS SENSITIVITIES

All classes maintain Stable Outlooks. Due to the recent issuance of the transaction and stable performance, Fitch does not foresee positive or negative ratings migration until a material economic or asset level event changes the transaction's portfolio-level metrics. Additional information on rating sensitivity is available in the report 'FREMF 2012-K23 Multifamily Mortgage Pass-Through Certificates and Freddie Mac Structured Pass-Through Certificates, Series K023' (Feb. 20, 2013), available at www.fitchratings.com.

The largest loan of the pool (5.24%) is secured by Highland Village Townhomes, a 1,098-unit complex located in Halethorpe, MD. The subject is located 15 miles north of Fort George G. Meade, a top employer in the Baltimore-Towson metropolitan statistical area (MSA). The subject benefits from the recent renovations to the interior finishes along with replacement of appliances within the individual units. The apartment complex amenities include two playgrounds, a laundry facility, and a privately operated YMCA.

The second largest loan (4.41%) is secured by Archstone Legacy Place, a 285-unit mid-rise apartment complex situated on 9.49 acres approximately 12 miles southwest of downtown Boston. The two midrise buildings, built in 2009, are in excellent physical condition and located next to an MBTA commuter rail that accesses the region's employment centers. The common amenities include a 304 space parking garage, fitness center, clubroom, business center, outdoor heated pool with cabana, and picnic area with barbeque grills. Residents can access the upscale lifestyle center on the adjacent site, Legacy Place, for grocery shopping, retail, and restaurant options.

The third largest loan (4.08%) is secured by, Mansion At Bala, a 276-unit apartment complex located in Philadelphia, PA.
