BILL NUMBER:S4288

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the private housing finance law, in
relation to creating a veteran's home and land ownership loan program

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To authorize the New York State Housing Finance Agency to provide down
payment assistance or rehabilitation loans to veterans, as well as
loans for the purchase of unimproved property for building a home.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

This bill adds a new Article XIX-A to the Private Housing Finance Law
to create a Home and Land Ownership Loan Fund within the New York
State Housing Finance Agency. The agency would be authorized to enter
into contracts with eligible veterans to provide loans to assist in
the purchase or the purchase and rehabilitation of a dwelling of up to
four residential units, provided such persons or family resides in one
of the units. The bill defines "eligible person" as a veteran to their
surviving unmarried spouse, and contains a definition of a veteran for
the purpose of the Article. Any such loans could not exceed 20 percent
of the cost of acquiring the dwelling or 20 percent of the value of
such dwelling after rehabilitation, or $40,000 in the case of the
unimproved Real Property. The value of the dwelling unit would be
determined from the appraisal required by the lending institution
granting the first mortgage loan such dwelling. If no such appraisal
has been made at the time a loan application is submitted, the agency
shall cause appraisal to be made. Any loan would have to be secured by
a second mortgage on the dwelling. If the recipient of such loan
assigns or conveys his interest in the dwelling or ceases to occupy
the dwelling, the unpaid principal balance of the mortgage, together
with interest thereon, would become due and payable. If the recipient
is unable to repay the loan, the agency would have the authority to
adjust the interest rate, terms, and conditions of the loan to
facilitate repayment. The repayment of any loan made pursuant to this
would be subject to an interest rate to be determined in accordance
with terms and conditions as the agency may establish. In no case
could the term of the first mortgage obtained for the purpose of
purchasing the dwelling, except in the case of a graduated payment
mortgage loan where no such loan could exceed a term of 30 years. The
bill also authorizes the agency to issue bonds and notes to carry out
the provisions of that act; however, they could not be issued in
excess of an aggregate amount of $20 million. The maximum maturity of
the bonds could not exceed 30 years, while the maximum maturity of the
notes or any renewals thereof could not exceed seven years from the
date of the original issue. The bonds and notes could be sold at
public or private sale, except that with regard to the latter, such
sale would have to be approved by the Comptroller or the State
Director of the Budget, depending on whom the sale is made.

EFFECTS OF THE PRESENT LAW WHICH THIS BILL WOULD ALTER:

The bill adds a new XIX - A to the Private Housing Finance Law.

JUSTIFICATION:


On account of escalating housing prices, veterans, and their families
are encountering difficulties in obtaining the necessary funds to
purchase a home, even though they are for a mortgage. This situation
occurs because they cannot accumulate enough cash to pay for the
difference between the purchase price of the home and the amount of
the mortgage funding. In addition, many veterans are precluded from
entering the housing market because they cannot gain access to enough
cash to afford the down payment on a home. This bill would provide
such veterans with the necessary funds to finance the down payment,
finance the added cash needed to purchase a home, provide needed
rehabilitation funds for repairing distressed (and generally
inexpensive) housing stock, or purchasing land upon which to build a
new home. Each of these approaches will significantly improve a
veterans' transition to civilian life, and would provide a benefit
both to communities across the state, and provide a real and tangible
measure of appreciation for the veterans to whom we all owe so much.
