NEW YORK, July 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Morningstar Credit Ratings, LLC today affirmed its 'MOR CS1' commercial mortgage primary, master, and special servicer rankings for Midland Loan Services, a division of PNC Bank, N.A. Morningstar's forecast for all three rankings is Stable.

Morningstar affirmed its primary and master servicer rankings based on Midland's extensive investor-reporting experience with commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) transactions and other investor types, proactive asset administration, excellent technology, and robust internal audit program.

As of Dec. 31, 2014, Midland's primary and master servicing portfolio, inclusive of shared servicing, consisted of 29,010 loans with an aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of approximately $326.56 billion. Midland was the master servicer on 83 CMBS transactions, the primary and master servicer on 168 CMBS transactions, and the special servicer on 331 securitized transactions. Midland's entire CMBS portfolio consisted of 9,336 loans with an aggregate UPB of $120.68 billion. Additionally, as of Dec. 31, 2014, Midland was the named master servicer on 13 single-family rental (SFR) securitizations collateralized by 50,665 SFR properties with an aggregate UPB of $7.20 billion and the named special servicer on five SFR securitizations collateralized by 23,183 single-family rental properties with an aggregate UPB of $2.80 billion.
