Virginia Administrative Code
Title 13. Housing
Agency 10. Virginia Housing Development Authority
Chapter 150. Rules and Regulations for the Virginia Senior Home Equity Account Program

13VAC10-150-80. Maximum amount.

The authority shall provide to an eligible applicant a maximum amount available under the home equity account based upon the interest rate or rates to be charged thereon, the age of an individual applicant or of the youngest joint applicant as of the application date, and the value of the home.

The value of the home shall be determined by the authority based on the home's assessed value, unless the authority, at its option and at its cost, elects to have the home appraised and to use the appraised value rather than the assessed value in so determining the value of the home. Also, if requested by the applicant, the authority may, at its option and at the cost of such applicant, obtain an appraisal of the home for use by the authority, in lieu of the assessed value, in determining the value of the home.

Prior to September 1, 1988, and on or about January 1 of each subsequent year, the executive director shall establish a schedule which sets the maximum percentages of the home value by age group based upon the interest rate to be in effect for such year. The maximum amount of the home equity account during such year shall be equal to such maximum percentage applicable to the age group of the applicant (or, in the case of joint applicants, the youngest applicant) as of the application date times the value of the home.

The maximum amount which may be disbursed under any home equity account shall in no event exceed $50,000.

The applicant may, at its option, request a lower maximum amount than may be approved by the authority, in which case the maximum amount shall be the amount so requested.
