You are eligible to apply for the Down Payment/Closing Cost (DPCC) Assistance Program if you meet all of the following qualifiers:
The loan is secured by a 2nd lien on your home for a 30-year term at 5.00%. The maximum loan amount is $25,000 (or 10% of the purchase price – whichever is less). You will make monthly payments beginning about 30-45 days after your settlement. There is no prepayment penalty if you decide to pay your loan off early.
No - even if borrowers are eligible for both programs, only one may be used.
No, you cannot. DPCC funds can only be used towards down payment and / or closing costs. Borrowers are not permitted to receive cash back at settlement. In this case, the DPCC loan amount would be reduced and the County of Loudoun would be reimbursed by the title company post settlement.
Occupants over 18 who do not receive income must submit a notarized statement certifying that they do not receive income from employment or any other source.
