{TUESDAY, MARCH •!!},'1985 SET PflOPEUTT ' Results Great; Costs Lo\v to 0 II Administration Seeks Eliminate Risks Mortgages. Properly standards will play im important part In the mutual murlgage program established uii- ^••.r Title II of ti'.e National Housing Art. for tlic purpose of facllitathiij the construction of now, and (lie refinancing of old homes. One of the first purpose.'! In the csukblislnncnt o( such standards is to eliminate, .so far as possible, tlie risks to which the funds extended on mortgages Insured by the Federal Housing Administration may be subjected. Almost equal in Importance is the obligation placed upon the administration by tlic act. to encourage improvement in housing standards and conditions. This obligation to elevate housing standards nnd conditions per- niitj Hie administration to view property itauaords from considerations of the health and well-being a! (!ie occupants of (lie dwellings, entirely apart, from factors Involved in l!;c safety of llic investment, ifself.

Tlit same standards will bu iipjilicd to existing buildings, both en to strnclurc and -neighborhood, as to new- buildings. In judging (he eligibility of a dwelling, neighborhood conditions lire imimrliinl. The pro|>crly' must be accessible to employment centers, markets and schools, and also so located as to oiler security against physical hazards. Tlic ri£ighborrmod must be of a hbmo- grjtca'us clrarac'ler and should offer .security against decline in desirability due lo the encroachment of inharmonious land uses. Every property will be considered in relation to its appropriateness to the district in which it 'a iucaliid as to type, replacement cost, quality a! Uic buildings, i(,s general character of design, its pliicc-nic-rit in relation to lot lines and adjoining buildings and lira relative amount of lot coverage. A major point In (lie Hdininls- Rcmarkabte transformations arc possible i;i inotleniizalJon projects without extreme outlay .as l;> 'shown in the above photographs.

Such improvements are easily available under (lie provisions of jiioclcrnliailluii credit loans ami well K'itliin (lie menus of thousands of American properly owners, • trillion's housing policy is that ample light and air in all Inhabitalcd rooms is essential to (he welfare and satisfaction 'of the occupants, and hence lo Hie long-time 'stability of the property. . It fixes a desirable maximum for single family detached houses at 'aboul .20 pei tent of the lot, while In no t.'isc is the coverage permitted to exce-d 30 per cent for interior lot and 10 per cent for a cornsr lot. Standards established in respect to .the.service.mid' cmiijment of u dwclllug-'fiicliidc .(lie. following: An adequate supply of pure water from an approved community source or' a • drilled well, safe from pollution;' n water, supply-to the kitchen, over-a sink with a waste' outlet to an approved -public soweragO: system . or other proper place of disposal oC.ivnsle water; at least one, water, closet .drained to an approved .public sewerage system', or--an .approved'Septic lank or ccss : pool; plumbing, sewerage, electrical wiring and apparatus installed In accordance with the provisions of. the local code ' or, where, these are lacking, according to approved national .'standards.

The administration is especially insistent upon this requirement because ot the great danger of rot and risk occuring in such spaces when poorly nired. Another provision 'is that all exterior surfaces shall be prcitecled by paint or otherwise to (lie satisfaction of (lie adinin- istratiou.
