Sponsor will pay one dollar per tax lot and deliver a note and mortgage for the remainder of the appraised value ("Land Debt"). For a period of twenty (20) years following completion of construction, the Land Debt will be repayable out of resale or refinancing profits.

 

5.                     TYPE OF PROJECT:                                                                                                         New Construction

 

6.                     APPROXIMATE NUMBER OF BUILDINGS:                     Up to 13

If homes remain unsold at the end of the Marketing Period and HPD determines in writing that (i) sale is not feasible within a reasonable time, and (ii) a rental fallback is the best available alternative, then the unsold homes may be rented in accordance with the written instructions of HPD.

 

9.                     ESTIMATE OF INITIAL PRICE:                                                                                    Sales prices will be affordable to families with annual household incomes between 80% and 130% of the area median income (AMI).

 

10.                     LIENS FOR LAND DEBT:                                                                                                         The difference between the appraised value of the land and the purchase price ("Land Debt") and the amount of any construction financing provided through loans from the City ("City Subsidy") are apportioned pro rata to each home and may be unsecured at the time of sale based on the home's post-construction appraised value. HPD may forgive the Land Debt (but not the City Subsidy) apportioned to a home upon conveyance of the home to an eligible purchaser, based on the appraised value of the home and/or if HPD determines that the forgiveness is necessary to reduce the taxable consideration that the eligible purchaser is paying for the home. Purchasers repay the Land Debt and City Subsidy, if any, attributable to their homes by delivering a note and mortgage and/or conditional grant agreement to the City. The sum evidenced by the note and secured by the security instruments will be reduced to zero after 20 years of owner occupancy. Initial purchasers and subsequent owners are required to make payments to the City out of resale or refinancing profits.
