Item 1.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Considerations
 
This Schedule 13D is being filed by the undersigned, pursuant to §240.13d-1(a), with respect to the common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Shares”), of Front Yard Residential Corporation (the “Issuer” or the “Company”), whose principal executive offices are 5100 Tamarind Reef, Christiansted, United States Virgin Islands 00820.
 
Item 2.
Identity and Background
 
(a-c,f) This Schedule 13D is filed on behalf of each of the following persons (collectively, the “Reporting Persons”):

i) Deer Park Road Management Company, LP (“Deer Park”);
ii) Deer Park Road Management GP, LLC (“DPRM”);
iii) Deer Park Road Corporation (“DPRC”);
iv) Michael Craig-Scheckman (“Mr. Craig-Scheckman”);
v) AgateCreek LLC (“AgateCreek”); and
vi) Scott Edward Burg (“Mr. Burg”).

This Schedule 13D relates to Shares held for the account of STS Master Fund, Ltd. (the “STS Master Fund”), which is an exempted company organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands. Deer Park serves as investment adviser to the STS Master Fund and, in such capacity, exercises voting and investment power over the Shares held in the account for the STS Master Fund. DPRM is the general partner of Deer Park. Each of DPRC and AgateCreek is a member of DPRM. Mr. Craig-Scheckman is the Chief Executive Officer of each of Deer Park and DPRC and the majority owner of DPRC. Mr. Burg is the Chief Investment Officer of Deer Park and the sole member of AgateCreek. Set forth in Annex A to this Schedule 13D are the names, business address, present principal occupation or employment and citizenship of each director and executive officer of DPRC.

The address of the principal business office of each of the Reporting Persons is 1195 Bangtail Way, Steamboat Springs, Colorado 80487. Deer Park is a limited partnership incorporated in Delaware; DPRM is a limited liability company incorporated in Delaware; DPRC is a Delaware corporation; Mr. Craig-Scheckman is a citizen of the United States of America; AgateCreek is a limited liability company incorporated in Colorado; and Mr. Burg is a citizen of the United States of America.

(d) None of the Reporting Persons nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Persons, any of the persons identified in Annex A, has, during the last five years, been convicted in a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors).
 
(e) On June 4, 2019, Deer Park and Mr. Burg, without admitting or denying any alleged violation, entered into a settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") resolving an investigation into Deer Park’s policies and procedures pertaining to its valuation of fund assets. Under the terms of the settlement: (i) Deer Park agreed to pay a civil money penalty of $5 million and Mr. Burg agreed to pay a civil money penalty of $250,000; (ii) Deer Park was censured; (iii) each Deer Park and Mr. Burg agreed to cease and desist from committing or causing any violations or any future violations of Section 206(4) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and Rule 206(4)-7 thereunder; and (iv) Deer Park undertook to conclude its work with an independent compliance consultant (the “Consultant”), whom Deer Park hired during the SEC’s investigation to conduct a comprehensive review of Deer Park’s policies and procedures for valuing assets in its private funds and processes for complying with GAAP in such valuations. Deer Park has adopted and implemented all of the recommendations in the Consultant’s final report.

Item 3.
Source and Amount of Funds or Other Considerations
  
The funds used for the purchase of the Shares and Call Option reported herein by the Reporting Persons were the working capital of the STS Master Fund, which may have included margin account borrowings made in the ordinary course of business. In such instances, the positions held in the margin accounts are pledged as collateral security for the repayment of debit balances in the account, which may exist from time to time. Because other securities are held in the margin accounts, it is not possible to determine the amounts, if any, of margin used to purchase the Shares and Call Option reported herein. A total of approximately $76,373,000, including commissions, was paid to acquire the Shares and Call Option reported herein.
 
Item 4.
Purpose of the Transaction
 
On October 19, 2020, the Company announced that it had entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Pretium Midway Holdco, LP (“Pretium”) and Midway Acquisition Co REIT, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pretium (“Merger Sub”), pursuant to which the Company will, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Merger Agreement, merge with and into Merger Sub, with Merger Sub surviving the merger and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Pretium (the “Merger”). Under the terms of the Merger Agreement, Company Shareholders will receive $13.50 in cash per Share. This summary of the Merger Agreement does not purport to be complete.

In connection with the Merger Agreement, Pretium and the STS Master Fund entered into a Voting and Support Agreement dated October 19, 2020 (the “Voting Agreement”), pursuant to which STS Master Fund, acting through the Reporting Persons, agreed to vote the 7,682,494 Shares of which it is a record owner, plus the additional 1,000,000 Shares that the Reporting Persons have the right to acquire upon exercise of the Call Option, of which Reporting Persons are the beneficial owner within the meaning of Rule 13d-3 under the Act, (collectively, the “Covered Securities”) in favor of the Merger, among other things. Under the Voting Agreement, STS Master Fund, acting through the Reporting Persons also agreed to not, directly or indirectly, cause or permit any transfer of the Covered Securities, or any transfer of voting rights to the Covered Securities, to be effected.  The foregoing obligations continue until the earlier of: (i) the date on which the Merger Agreement is validly terminated in accordance with its terms; (ii) the date upon which the Merger becomes effective; or (iii) May 19, 2021. This summary of the Voting Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such document, which is included as Exhibit D to this Schedule 13D and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Merger transaction contemplated by the Voting Agreement, if consummated, will result in certain or all of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) through (j), inclusive of the instruction to Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Persons expect to review from time to time their investment in the Issuer and may, depending on the market and other conditions and subject to the federal securities laws and the terms of the Voting Agreement: (i) acquire additional Shares, options or related derivatives in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise; (ii) dispose of all or a portion of the Shares, options or related derivatives now beneficially owned or hereafter acquired by them; (iii) engage in communications with, without limitation, one or more shareholders of the Issuer, one or more officers of the Issuer and/or one or more members of the Board regarding the Issuer, including but not limited to the Merger or the Issuer’s general operations, governance and control; and (iv) engage in other proposals as the Reporting Persons may deem appropriate under the circumstances, including plans or proposals which may relate to, or could result in, any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) through (j), inclusive, of the instructions to Item 4 of Schedule 13D.

Except as set forth above, none of the Reporting Persons has any plans or proposals which relate to, or could result in, any of the matters referred to in paragraphs (a) through (j), inclusive, of the instructions to Item 4 of Schedule 13D. The Reporting Persons may, at any time and from time to time, review or reconsider their position and/or change their purpose and/or formulate plans or proposals with respect thereto.

In connection with filing this Schedule 13D jointly, pursuant to Rule 13d-1(k)(1) under the Act, the Reporting Persons entered into a Joint Filing Agreement, dated February 14, 2020, which is filed as Exhibit A to this Schedule 13D and is incorporated by reference herein. Except as described herein and in Item 4 of this Schedule 13D, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships (legal or otherwise) among the persons named in Item 2 of this Schedule 13D or between such persons and any other person with respect to any securities of the Issuer.

5.10 Severability. Any term or provision of this Agreement that is invalid or unenforceable in any situation in any jurisdiction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions hereof or the validity or enforceability of the offending term or provision in any other situation or in any other jurisdiction. If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, the parties hereto agree that the court making such determination shall have the power to limit the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified.

Except as provided herein, including pursuant to Section 2.3, neither this Agreement nor any of the interests or obligations hereunder may be assigned or delegated by Stockholder, and any attempted or purported assignment or delegation of any of such interests or obligations shall be void. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement shall be binding upon Stockholder and Stockholder’s heirs, estate, executors and personal representatives and Stockholder’s successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of Parent and its successors and assigns. Without limiting any of the restrictions set forth in Section 2, Section 3 or elsewhere in this Agreement, this Agreement shall be binding upon any Person to whom any Covered Securities are Transferred. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to confer on any Person (other than Parent, Merger Sub and their successors and assigns) any rights or remedies of any nature.
 
5.14 Specific Performance. The parties agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with the specific terms or were otherwise breached. Stockholder agrees that, in the event of any breach or threatened breach by Stockholder of any covenant or obligation contained in this Agreement, Parent shall be entitled, without any proof of actual damage (and in addition to any other remedy that may be available to it, including monetary damages) to obtain: (a) a decree or order of specific performance to enforce the observance and performance of such covenant or obligation; and (b) an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach. Stockholder further agrees that neither Parent nor any other Person shall be required to obtain, furnish or post any bond or similar instrument in connection with or as a condition to obtaining any remedy referred to in this Section 5.14, and Stockholder irrevocably waives any right Stockholder may have to require the obtaining, furnishing or posting of any such bond or similar instrument.
 
5.15 Non-Exclusivity.

5.16 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial.
 
(a) This Agreement, the rights and obligations of the parties hereto under this Agreement, and any disputes arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be deemed to be made in and in all respects shall be interpreted, construed and governed by and in accordance with the Law of the State of Delaware without regard to the conflict of law principles thereof.
 

(b) Each of the parties (i) irrevocably submits exclusively to the jurisdiction of the Chancery Courts of the State of Delaware (the “Chancery Court”) or, if the Chancery Court declines jurisdiction, any other Delaware state court, and the federal courts of the United States of America, in each case, located in New Castle County in the State of Delaware (collectively, “Chosen Courts”) in the event any dispute arises out of this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) agrees that it will not attempt to deny or defeat such personal jurisdiction by motion or other request for leave from any such court, (iii) agrees that it will not bring any Proceeding by or before any Governmental Entity relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby in any court other than the Chosen Courts, (iv) waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such Proceeding in the Chosen Courts or that such Proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same and (v) consents to service being made through the notice procedures set forth in Section 5.9. Each of the parties hereby agrees that service of any process, summons, notice or document by U.S. registered mail to the respective addresses set forth in Section 5.9 shall be effective service of process for any Proceeding in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby. Notwithstanding the foregoing in this Section 5.16(b), a party may commence any legal action or proceeding in a court other than the above-named courts solely for the purpose of enforcing an order or judgment issued by one of the above-named courts.
 
(c) EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT ANY CONTROVERSY WHICH MAY ARISE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IS LIKELY TO INVOLVE COMPLICATED AND DIFFICULT ISSUES, AND THEREFORE EACH SUCH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY
6

RIGHT SUCH PARTY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT.

5.17 Counterparts; Effectiveness. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts (including by attachment to electronic mail in portable document format (PDF)), each such counterpart being deemed to be an original instrument, and all such counterparts shall together constitute the same agreement, and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties hereto and delivered to the other parties hereto.
 
5.18 Captions. The captions contained in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only, shall not be deemed to be a part of this Agreement and shall not be referred to in connection with the construction or interpretation of this Agreement.
 
5.19 Attorneys’ Fees. If any legal action or other legal proceeding relating to this Agreement or the enforcement of any provision of this Agreement is brought against any party hereto, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements (in addition to any other relief to which the prevailing party may be entitled).
 
5.20 Waiver. No failure on the part of Parent to exercise any power, right, privilege or remedy under this Agreement, and no delay on the part of Parent in exercising any power, right, privilege or remedy under this Agreement, shall operate as a waiver of such power, right, privilege or remedy; and no single or partial exercise of any such power, right, privilege or remedy shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof or of any other power, right, privilege or remedy. Parent shall not be deemed to have waived any claim available to Parent arising out of this Agreement, or any power, right, privilege or remedy of Parent under this Agreement, unless the waiver of such claim, power, right, privilege or remedy is expressly set forth in a written instrument duly executed and delivered on behalf of Parent; and any such waiver shall not be applicable or have any effect except in the specific instance in which it is given.
 
5.21 Independence of Obligations. The covenants and obligations of Stockholder set forth in this Agreement shall be construed as independent of any other Contract between Stockholder, on the one hand, and the Company or Parent, on the other. The existence of any claim or cause of action by Stockholder against the Company or Parent shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement of any of such covenants or obligations against Stockholder. Nothing in this Agreement shall limit any of the rights or remedies of Parent under the Merger Agreement, or any of the rights or remedies of Parent or any of the obligations of Stockholder under any agreement between Stockholder and Parent or any certificate or instrument executed by Stockholder in favor of Parent, and nothing in the Merger Agreement or in any other such agreement, certificate or instrument, shall limit any of the rights or remedies of Parent or any of the obligations of Stockholder under this Agreement.
