Accepting $10,000 - $250,000 investments
A Yieldstreet entity (“Yieldstreet”) provided $1.665M in senior note-on-note financing (the “Loan”) to an affiliate of Urban Standard Capital (“USC” or the “Originator”) so that USC could close on a $1.85M first mortgage loan (“Underlying Loan”) secured by a four story multi-family brownstone (“Property”) in the neighborhood of Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. Yieldstreet’s investment is senior to the loan made by USC to the property-owning borrower (the “Underlying Borrower”) because of the note-on-note structure of our Loan.
In the event of default by the Underlying Borrower, USC may continue to make monthly debt service on the Yieldstreet Loan for 60 to 150 days depending on the type of default (“Cure Period”). If the Underlying Borrower is unable to resume payment by the end of the Cure Period or if USC otherwise defaults on the loan, Yieldstreet would have the right to become the sole mortgage note holder of the Underlying Loan. Yieldstreet would then have the power to enact any and all rights and remedies of a secured mortgage lender (subject to the mortgage documents) to recover amounts due under the Underlying Loan, including loan modification and initiating foreclosure.
The borrower of the Underlying Loan used the proceeds, along with $775k in cash equity, to purchase the Property, pay closing costs, and partially fund a renovation reserve. The capital that Yieldstreet provided to USC was used to make a loan to the Underlying Borrower. The Underlying Borrower is obligated to contribute $300k in cash equity to cover the cost of the planned renovations required on the property. After this cash has been contributed, the cost of the project (calculated as the cost of the property, closing costs, and renovation costs) equates to $2.9M. As such, the loan to cost (LTC) ratio for the Yieldstreet Loan is 58.2%. In addition to the property securing the Underlying Loan, the principals of the Underlying Borrower provided a $200k personal guarantee for obligations under the Underlying Loan, and a bad actor carve out guarantee. As of July 31, 2020, the principal of the Underlying Borrower had a net worth of $5.4M, $850K of which is held in cash.
The Underlying Borrower’s business plan is to renovate the building and reconfigure the Property’s units. As is, the Property consists of three 1-bedroom units (one of which is a duplex). Upon completion, the Property is expected to consist of four 3-bedroom units. The renovation budget is $400k. At closing, the Underlying Borrower contributed $100k towards this budget and is obligated to contribute another $150K within 60 days of loan closing (October 4, 2020), and another $150k (for a total $300k contribution) within 90 days of loan closing (November 3, 2020).
In addition, the Originator Fund has provided a bad actor carve-out guarantee to Yieldstreet for acts of fraud and misrepresentation by the Originator and its affiliates in relation to the YS Loan and the Underlying Loan.

Sources & Uses
What were the Loan proceeds used for?
The Underlying Borrower used the proceeds from the Underlying Loan along with $775k in cash equity to purchase the Property, pay closing costs, and partially fund a renovation reserve. The Underlying Borrower is obligated to contribute an additional $300k towards the renovation reserve, resulting in total project costs of $2.9M, representing a LTC of 58.2% for the Yieldstreet Loan. The sources and uses of the loan proceeds are illustrated in the respective tables.
Where does the YS entity lie in terms of priority?
Yieldstreet has provided USC with senior note-on-note financing at an advance rate of 90%. Yieldstreet’s exposure is effectively senior to the USC’s retained portion.
What is the collateral underlying the transaction?
The Yieldstreet loan is secured by the Underlying Loan, which in turn is secured by a first priority interest on the Property. The Property is a four story multi-family building located in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. It is in close proximity to the Atlantic Avenue Barclays Center MTA subway station and the LIRR (Long Island Railroad), which provide direct access to Manhattan and Long Island.
The Property consists of three one-bedroom units, of which one unit is a duplex. Upon completion, the Property is expected to consist of four three-bedroom units of approximately 800 SF each. All units are eligible for fair market rent. Upon acquisition of the Property, the Underlying Borrower filed for the necessary construction permits. As of August 25, 2020, it has received the required permit for the duplex split (Alt 1) and the associated demolition and construction work has begun. It has resubmitted the permit for the unit reconfigurations (Alt 1) and expected to receive the permits prior to completion of the duplex split. The principal affiliated with the Underlying Borrower expects the total construction work to be completed in 6-8 weeks, and for lease-up to occur within 90 days of unit availability.
Term and Cash Flow
How do I get paid?
The Yieldstreet loan has a 9-month term remaining with the option for one 6-month extension (total extended term of 15 months remaining) and is co-terminus with the Underlying Loan. The option to extend the Underlying Loan is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including there being no ongoing event of default and the Underlying Borrower funding a reserve for interest, real estate taxes, and insurance premiums due through the extended maturity date. Yieldstreet investors are scheduled to receive monthly interest payments at an annualized target rate of 7% during the investment’s initial term, and 7.25% during the extended term. Principal is expected to be repaid at maturity, upon refinancing or sale of the Property.
