The maximum amount of the loan is the same as under Section 203(b) - Program 14.117. The down payment is the difference between the maximum loan amount and the purchase price of the home. In addition to the down payment, the purchaser must pay for all items of prepaid expense. As of July 1, 1991, risk-based mortgage insurance premiums will be collected including: 1) an up-front premium which may be financed and 2) a periodic premium which is paid monthly. If property is a condominium unit; the mortgage insurance premium is one-half percent paid monthly. The loan origination charge by the mortgagee varies, but may not exceed one percent of the total mortgage (minus the mortgage insurance premium, if financed). Mortgagors may be charged appraisal and inspection fees in accordance with fee schedules established by HUD.
