Title 24: Housing and Urban Development
§235.1232 Eligibility for assistance payments.
(a) To be eligible for assistance payments, a homeowner must:
(1) Be a mortgagor on a mortgage insured under section 235(r);
(2) Have been entitled to, and receiving, assistance payments under the mortgage being refinanced; and
(3) According to the formula contained under §235.1210(a), continue to be eligible for such payments under the 235(r) mortgage.
(b) The mortgagee, holding the mortgage being refinanced, must certify that the mortgagor is eligible for, and receiving, assistance payments under the mortgage being refinanced and that the last recertification by the mortgagor was within the preceding twelve months prior to the application for the section 235(r) mortgage. If the last recertification was not within that period, then the mortgagee will have to obtain a current recertification from the mortgagor for the purpose of determining whether the mortgagor remains eligible to continue receiving assistance payments under the mortgage being refinanced.
(c) In addition, the mortgagee originating the 235(r) mortgage must obtain a new certification from the mortgagor for eligibility for assistance payments under the 235(r) mortgage.
(d) For purposes of determining eligibility under the 235(r) mortgage, the mortgagor must certify as to occupancy, employment, family composition and income on a form prescribed by the Secretary.
(e) The mortgagor shall agree to recertify, on a form prescribed by the Secretary, as to occupancy, employment, family composition and income in accordance with 24 CFR 235.350.
(f) Homeowners, who are cooperative members and have been receiving assistance payments under section 235, are not eligible for assistance payments in connection with section 235(r) since they are not eligible for a mortgage insured under that section.
