6 5 STAR TEXAS ADVANTAGE PROGRAM Administrator s Guidelines Page 7 PROGRAM PRODUCTS PLEASE NOTE THAT RATES AND ASSISTANCE GRANT AMOUNTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME. With respect to reserved loans, the rate and assistance will not change as long as loans are delivered according to the timetable included in this Guide. All loans in this program are Assisted Rate Loans. Current rates are displayed within the ehousing Plus system. PLEASE RELY ON THE SYSTEM FOR THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION. Funds are available in a first-come, first-served pool that provides continuous funding. Currently, borrowers may choose from among four Assisted Loan types Rev Option 1: Assisted Rate Loan with 6% Assistance Grant FHA ONLY The borrower receives a 30-year, fixed rate, fully amortizing first mortgage loan with 360 level monthly payments as well as an assistance payment equal to 6.00% of the note amount to apply toward down payment or closing costs. Current rates are available online within the system. Income limits apply. Option 2: Assisted Rate Loan with 5% Assistance Grant FHA ONLY The borrower receives a 30-year, fixed rate, fully amortizing first mortgage loan with 360 level monthly payments as well as an assistance payment equal to 5.00% of the note amount to apply toward down payment or closing costs. Current rates are available online within the system. Income limits apply. Option 3: Assisted Rate Loan Lower Rate Loan with 4% Assistance Grant The borrower receives the second lowest rate 30-year, fixed rate, fully amortizing first mortgage loan with 360 level monthly payments as well as an assistance payment equal to 4.00% of the note amount to apply toward down payment or closing costs. Current rates are available online within the system. Income limits apply.

The Assistance may be used for down payment or closing costs and prepaids. While there is no cash back in this program, the borrower may be reimbursed for any overpayment of escrow. Because the Assistance is a fixed percentage, any remaining Assistance must be applied as a principal reduction. Assistance is in the form of a nonrepayable grant. It is not repayable under any circumstances. When you reserve the first mortgage, the Assistance is automatically reserved. There is no additional reservation necessary. When you close the loan there are no second mortgages, second notes, deed restrictions or liens. There is no repayment.
7 5 STAR TEXAS ADVANTAGE PROGRAM Administrator s Guidelines Page 8 Lender No Longer Advances HFA Grant ADDED Recently certain lenders have reported HUD audit findings prohibiting Lenders from advancing any gifts or grants to the Borrower at closing on behalf of a government, instrumentality of government or housing finance agency. HFAs have historically relied on Lenders to advance the gift or grant to the Borrowers, to be reimbursed by the servicer when the loans are purchased, so this appears to be a new HUD policy. Effective immediately, the SETH Grant will be funded by SETH via electronic wire transfer from SETH s Custodial Agent Bank of Texas. According to the HUD Manual ( Chapter 5, Section B, page 5- B-16): Lender must obtain and keep the documentation of the wire transfer in its mortgage loan application binder. While the document does not need to be provided in the insurance binder, it must be available for inspect by FHA s QAD when that office conducts its onsite review. With a minimum 2 business days notice from the Loan Closing Date, Lenders will be asked to to Bank of Texas, N.A. at and with the Wire Transfer Request Form. As a reference, please include the US Bank Loan Number assigned when the Loan Reservation was made through ehousing. There is no need to collect the $25 wire transfer fee from the Borrower or reduce the requested wire amount by $25. There is no charge for the wire transfer. (Rev 2/8/13) The Wire Transfer Request Form may be found on the ehousingplus.com website behind security. The Underwriter Certification should be completed within 25 (Rev ) days of loan reservation and prior to the Request Form being submitted.
