Frequently asked questions

We are a lender business within Chase that offers multifamily loan financing in 13 major U.S. markets.

We provide term financing from $500,000 to over $25 million for the purchase or refinance of stabilized multifamily properties with five or more units.

To get things started, we’ll need two years of operating history and recent rent roll to issue you a written quote ("letter of intent"). A client manager will walk you through the whole process.

After a letter of intent is accepted, we require an application deposit to process the loan and appraisal.

The next step is to provide a credit authorization and related information, financial statements, a schedule of real estate and as applicable, entity documents. Tax returns are not required.

Chase prides itself on our low fees. A multifamily loan can cost the greater of $2,000 or 12.5 basis points of the loan amount.

Early rate lock is available through Chase.
