One of tho mcaiis by which Federal housing authorities hope to keep down the costs of financing private home building is keeping foreclosure costs low. Many states have put up high barriers against hasty foreclosure with the result that when a home building contract goes "sour" it sometimes takes many months of litigation to get the purchaser out so that a new buyer may take posesslon. The result is to increase the cost of financing tile job—and thus to make the financing less inviting as an investment. * * + Delayed Eviction Expensive Here is the picture as some housing officials see it: A man comes to his bank asking a contract to build a house costing $5,000. Under the new housing act he will have to pay down ten per cent, $500. The hank will lend him the rest and the Federal Housing Authority will In sure the wholo $4,600 loan, which thus equals 90 per cent of tho value of the houso (o lie built. When the houso Is built the buy or takos It over HJH! begins paying off the loan In monthly Installments. Kxcept for the original $500 down payment, it is just like renting a house. Of course If nil goes -well, the buyer owns the house at the end of 17 to 20 years. But suppose at tho end of six months or a year, the buyer loses his job, or perhaps just becomes ornery and decides not to make any more monthly payments. What then? Under laws In some slates the buyer can be expelled from MONDAY, JANUARY 3, 1938. the house In three weeks to c month under foreclosure proceed 1 Ings. )u the District of Columbia It can bo done In three weeks, nut In mnuy other states, New York and Illinois are examples, the buyer can escape eviction for a year or more, meantime making no payments and ignoring other terms of .the sales contract. The Home Loan Owners corporation, also in the mortgage field, lias occasionally spent two years evict- ng an owner who refused to make myments. * * * Jhange Conies Slow When that happens, the loss on he deal Is greater than any .pos- siblo profit • to the bank making the loan nt 6 to 5>& per cent Interest. The result has been, Fed- oral housing authorities comment, that there 'has been a "tendency" on the part of some banks in these long-delay foreclosure states to look two times before showing interest In these new SO per cent loan nsnrance deals. The reason is that under (lie old SO per cent loan operation the P.II.A. stood'the cost of foreclosure. Under the new 90 per cent loan program (he !mnk has to make the foreclosure and turn the house over to the '.H.A. with tile defaulting buyer ilroady ousted. State legislatures are being ad- vised to change their foreclosure laws as a means of encouraging housing, but tho going is slow. The old-lino foreclosure laws were designed primarily to protect honest fanners and homo owners from being roughly thrown into the street by a grasping mortgage- holder eager to get possession of tho properly.
