Improve Senior Lender Profit with CleanFund

Add PACE to your mortgage lending program,

PACE + mortgage = better capital.

Edit Content

Call protection is improved. PACE runs with the land, not the borrower, and is automatically transferred upon a sale. This allows for 30-year terms with prepayment penalties, so it will have a longer average duration than a mortgage.

The risk on PACE is lower than a ground lease or the “A” portion of an A-B note. It is protected from bankruptcy since it survives any foreclosure.

Lenders can dictate higher interest rates on PACE than a mortgage because of duration and comparative market pricing from direct PACE lenders.

Increased origination volume with PACE

Lender PACE combined with a conservative mortgage LTV results in a higher advance rate -- making your offer more attractive.


Lender PACE can be added to an existing mortgage without refinancing the first mortgage since it is repaid as a tax instead of as an increase in debt.  Maintain account control while increasing profits.


Lender PACE allows a portion of your offer to be non-recourse and to be automagically transferred to a new owner upon a sale.

Reach your ESG target faster

The Environmental impact from PACE is self-evident so various rating agencies have made it easy for PACE improvements to officially qualify as a “green bond”.
