The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today issued version 2.0 of the "Commercial Real Estate Lending" booklet of the Comptroller's Handbook. This booklet discusses risks and risk management practices associated with commercial real estate. This booklet also provides examiners with a framework for evaluating commercial real estate lending activities.
The updated booklet replaces version 1.1 of the booklet of the same title issued in January 2017. Also rescinded is OCC Bulletin 2013-19, "Commercial Real Estate Lending: Comptroller's Handbook Revisions and Rescissions," which transmitted version 1.0 of the booklet of the same title issued in August 2013.
The "Commercial Real Estate Lending" booklet applies to the OCC's supervision of community banks1 engaged in commercial real estate lending.
