If the borrower is currently subject to a Repayment Plan and again fails to pay required property charges, the Mortgagee may reevaluate the borrower for an additional corporate advance. Mortgagees must solicit new financial information from the borrower to conduct this new Repayment Plan assessment.
The revised Repayment Plan must recalculate the “Total Arrearage” which should include all outstanding corporate advances made. If the Mortgagee determines that a new Repayment Plan is not reasonable after performing this calculation, this loss mitigation option is not available. No borrower may be given more than 60 months (or such shorter amount of time as necessary to ensure repayment before the mortgage reaches 98 percent of the Maximum Claim Amount total to repay any and all advances.
