 Kentucky Housing first mortgage loans guidelines for 2013

KHC Loan Programs

MRB

  • All MRB Kentucky Housing first mortgage loans are for a 30-year term at a fixed rate of interest.

  • Some MRB KHC loans are subject to a federal recapture tax. Recapture is a federal income tax that the borrowers may have to pay if they have considerable growth in their income and they sell or transfer their KHC-financed home within 9 years.  However, KHC has implemented a Recapture Tax Guarantee Program for all loans that close after October 1, 2006.  The Recapture Tax Guarantee Program will reimburse homeowners if they are subject to pay the Federal Recapture Tax on their KHC mortgage loan upon the sale of their home.

Home Buyer Tax Credit

KHC’s Home Buyer Tax Credit is available through Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC), which reduce the amount of federal income tax you pay, giving you more available income to qualify for a mortgage loan.  MCCs are NOT mortgages.  They are tax credits that put extra cash in your pocket each month, so you can more easily afford a house payment.  That means fewer tax dollars will be withheld from your regular paycheck, increasing your take-home pay.  The federal government allows every homeowner an income tax deduction for all the interest paid each year on a mortgage loan.  But an MCC gives you a tax credit of 25 percent (not to exceed $2,000).  You can still deduct the remaining 75 percent interest on your income taxes.  A tax credit is not the same as a tax deduction.  A tax deduction reduces the portion of your income that is taxed, so you pay less.  A tax credit is a direct, dollar for dollar reduction in the total tax you owe.  The MCC is effective for the life of the loan as long as you live in the home.  If you sell your home in the first nine years of ownership, you may be subject to Federal Recapture Tax.  One-time fee of $500 or reduced to $200 if through KHC’s GNMA Secondary Market First Mortgage Program.  Not valid with MRB loan programs.

Down Payment and Closing Costs Assistance

Kentucky Housing recognizes that down payments, closing costs and prepaids are stumbling blocks for many potential home buyers. Here are several loan programs to help. Your KHC-approved lender can help you apply for the program that meets your needs.

Neighborhood Down payment Assistance Program (DAP)

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) received $3 million from the National Mortgage Foreclosure Settlement Fund to offer a new mortgage program for down payment and closing costs assistance. This program is only available until all funds are gone.
Repayable second mortgage up to $10,000
  • 1 percent interest rate for 30 years.
  • Income must be less than $124,775 (terms and conditions apply).
To be eligible for the Neighborhood DAP, either:
  • The property must be in the process of disposition option (i.e., deed-in-lieu, short sale) or foreclosed upon.
  • The newly-constructed or existing property has been for sale for at least six months.
  • The home buyer has experienced a foreclosure and credit qualifies to purchase another home.

Regular DAP

  • Purchase price up to $243,000.
  • Assistance in the form of a loan up to $6,000 in $100 increments.
  • Repayable over a ten-year term at 6 percent.  A DAP of $6,000 over ten years at 6 percent interest would equal a payment of $66.61.
  • Available to all KHC first-mortgage loan recipients.

HOME-DAP

  • Purchase price up to $195,700.
  • Assistance up to $4,500
  • No monthly repayment; forgiven over five years.

  • No liquid asset review and no limit on borrower reserves for Regular DAP.
  • Borrowers may retain two months’ house payments in reserve while using available funds first before looking for any form of HOME DAP assistance.
  • Specific credit underwriting standards may apply to down payment programs.
