OVERVIEW GEORGIA DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE LHFS

The GEORGIA FHA Down Payment Assistance Program (DAP) is a competitively priced government loan program that does not require a minimum down payment from the home buyer(s), exclusively offered GEORGIA FHA Down Payment Assistance Program. GEORGIA FHA Down Payment Assistance Program provides you with a choice of a 3%, 4%, 5%, or 6% DAP. This home loan program is a purchase money first lien mortgage with down payment assistance in the form of a subordinate soft second lien with a 0.00% interest rate, as a 5-year term, forgiven at month 61. Borrower(s) must remain current on their mortgage for the second mortgage to be forgiven. The DAP should be ran through AUS as a second mortgage without a required payment. This product is designed for the borrower that has achieved financial stability as demonstrated by the file documenting that they have met the responsibilities associated with taking the next step to home ownership such as stability of employment and income, managing their finances and savings to a budget that exhibits responsible repayment patterns and a satisfactory credit history. The down payment assistance program is intended to help these families or individual that have been unable to save a sufficient amount for a down payment and do not have any other resources available for down payment assistance. Due to the nature of the layered risk in the product offering GEORGIA FHA Down Payment Assistance Program will require an evaluation of the borrower’s current housing payment history. The borrower must maintain a bank account which will be reviewed to ensure the borrower is able to meet their monthly obligations based on their current income level in a timely manner. GEORGIA down payment assistance mortgage lenders will require two months bank statements as part of the underwriting evaluation. While the program will allow the down payment and closing costs to be covered by the DAP or other eligible borrower funds/gifts along with seller contributions used for closing costs only, bank statements are required as a necessary part of the credit evaluation. In order to ensure the borrower will be able to manage a new mortgage payment, the evaluation will include housing payment history. We consider payments made after the due date to be late, inconsistent payment amounts throughout the month and full 30-day lates in making a decision on both the borrower’s ability and willingness to repay. We also generally see payment shock on the housing payment to the new required mortgage, so it is especially important to review the GEORGIA down payment assistance mortgage applicants monthly budgeting and financial stability. New homeowners face increased costs when transitioning from a rental property into home ownership where they are responsible for covering all utilities, incidentals, and maintenance of the home. As part of this review, borrower’s that are unable to manage month to month and exhibit NSF (Non-Sufficient Funds) outside of an isolated incident are reviewed very carefully as this is an indication of excessive obligations or inability to manage current budget. Layered with limited assets, payment shock or other credit concerns, these factors may result in a loan denial for this program due to layered risk. It is our intention to help families achieve successful home ownership, not create a financial hardship
