Home cannot be vacant or condemned and must be a primary residence?not investor owned. Interest rate can be lowered to as low as 2 per cent and the term of the mortgage can be extended to a maximum of 40 years in order to maximize the reduction in loan payment. Borrowers will need to provide an "affidavit of financial hardship", their most recent tax return, and two recent pay stubs. Service providers will be required to follow a sequence of steps that modify the loan in order to reduce the monthly loan payment to no more than 31% of gross monthly income. Homeowners who make their payments on time are eligible for up to $1,000 of principal reduction payments each year for up to five years. For more information read:
