Details of Monthly Payments Added to the Loan Amount
While this property was under renovation, all of the monthly payments were financed in the loan amount. Therefore, no monthly payments were needed while the contractor completed the necessary and desired renovations on the property. Thus, the borrower did not need to make two payments (one for the current living arrangements and the other on the property). The payments were added to the loan amount for 6 months, while completing the property. Then the borrower began making payments on their own, consistent with the loan terms.

This was a very old property, with many issues to address ranging from deferred maintenance to upgrading to current standards. The total renovation made all of these renovations upgrades both possible and affordable.
