Purchase Assistance

The City of Hollywood offers up to $70,000 in gap purchase assistance to buy either of these homes.  The purchase assistance is a second mortgage loan, zero percent (0%) interest, no monthly payments, 30-year term, and payable in full at term maturity or property sale, whichever occurs first. At thirty days prior to the maturity date, the City shall offer the mortgagee a refinancing option under the same terms and conditions, so long as the mortgagee has not defaulted on any terms and conditions set forth in the mortgage. The loan will be in default, if any of the following occurs during the loan term: sale, transfer, or conveyance of property; conversion to a rental property; loss of homestead exemption status; failure to occupy the home as primary residence; failure to maintain fire, hazard, flood, and windstorm (where applicable) insurance in an amount that is adequate to cover all property loans with the City named as loss payee; failure to maintain the property in accordance with all City codes and regulations. If any of these occur it shall be considered a default under the City’s Mortgage and Promissory Note, wherein the City may pursue acceleration of the payment and all other legal remedies to recapture the balance. Buyers must contribute at least 3% of the first loan amount, and the purchase assistance amount will fill the “gap” after the first mortgage loan and buyer’s contribution are applied to the purchase and closing costs.
