FHA Announces
New Loan Plan
In Farm Buying
The Farmers Home adminis
tration has added a new feature
to Its lending program which
permits private lenders to make
farm purchase, enlargement and
development loans with mort
gages insured by the federal
government, announces Cecil J.
Youngstrom, FHA field repre
sentative, Portland.
The authority for the insured
farm mortgage program, states
Youngstrom, is contained In the
Farmers Home administration
act of 1946 which amends the
Bankhead-Jones farm tenant act.
The original law specified that
only direct government loan
funds could be used In the FHA
The farm ownership program
is designed to enable farm ten
ants, sharecroppers and farm la
borers to buy and operate fam
ily type farms, and to enable
owners of undersized and under
developed farms to create ade
quate family farm units.
I ' r-"- ' .11-
'surance for mortgages of private
lenders is intended to extend
the benefits of the program to
larger numbers of people and to
encourage private enterprise to
make the loans.
Each insured mortgage loan is
based upon a normal earning ca
pacity appraisal of the farm by
a federal appraiser. This apprai
sal must be approved by the
FHA county committee made up
of three persons, at least two of
whom are farmers. The commit
tee also considers the qualifica
tions of applicants.
This type of loan Is only av
ailable to applicants who are
unable to get the necessary cred
it at the rates and terms prevail
ing In their community, Young
strom adds. Veterans are given
preference for all loans.
To protect the government's
interest, the FHA assists each
borrower to deve.op sound oper
ation methods.
Twelve county FHA offices are
operated in Oregon, located tn
the cities of Albany. McMInn
