J.P. Morgan Chase Commercial Mortgage Securities Trust 2012-C6 -- Moody's upgrades one and affirms eleven classes of JPMCC 2012-C6

The rating on Cl. B was upgraded based on an increase in credit support resulting from loan paydowns and amortization as well as a significant increase in defeasance. The deal has paid down 6.7% since Moody's last review and defeasance increased to 18.0% of the current pool balance from 0% at the last review. The ratings on nine principal and interest (P&I) classes were affirmed because the transaction's key metrics, including Moody's loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, Moody's stressed debt service coverage ratio (DSCR) and the transaction's Herfindahl Index (Herf), are within acceptable ranges.
