Second Mortgages for HCDA Reserved Housing units

 

Please allow at least four to six weeks to complete the subordination process needed for these second mortgages.
This process may be further delayed due to missing or incorrect information provided to the HCDA.

At its August 4, 2021 Kakaako Meeting, the Authority approved subordinating its Equity Sharing Payment for Reserved Housing Units to allow unit owners to obtain a second mortgage under the following conditions:

1. The maximum allowable second mortgage amount will be limited to the Original Sales Contract Price plus Any Partial Shared Equity Payments minus the Remaining Mortgage, and
2. The total allowable first mortgage plus second mortgage cannot exceed the current City and County of Honolulu property tax assessed value, if the current property tax assessed value is less than the Original Sales Contract Price.

HCDA’s Equity Sharing Payment is generally the difference between the Original Fair Market Value of the unit and its Original Sales Contract Price, but not to exceed the difference between the Resale Fair Market Value and the Original Sales Contract Price.

Example calculations of second mortgage amount:

Reserved Housing Unit A

Original Fair Market Value: $496,912
Original Sales Contract price: $352,043
Equity Sharing Amount: $144,869 (none prepaid)
Current Remaining Mortgage (principal): $209,582
Current Tax Assessed Value: $598,100
Maximum allowable second mortgage: ($352,043 + $0) – $209,582 = $142,461

Reserved Housing Unit B

Original Fair Market Value: $588,000
Original Sales Contract price: $517,612
Equity Sharing Amount: $70,388 (none prepaid)
Current Remaining Mortgage (principal): $452,357
Current Tax Assessed Value: $489,700
(Note: The current value is less than the original sales contract price, so the second mortgage is limited by condition #2 above)
Maximum allowable second mortgage: ($489,700 + $0) – $452,357 = $37,343

The above policy on second mortgages is in addition to a previously approved policy that allows owners to refinance their primary/original mortgage up to 95% of the original purchase price.
