Thank you to our guest blogger Frank Melia, of Quontic Bank, for leading this conversation on trust borrowing options for your clients who have transferred their property into a Medicaid Asset Protection Trust (MAPT).
Why Do Most Banks Not Offer Mortgages To Properties Held In MAPT’s?
Historically Brokers & Banks follow guidelines set by Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac and they do not allow borrowers other than individuals (no corporations or trusts). As a federally chartered Bank, Quontic Bank offers our proprietary Portfolio loan programs where we ALLOW Trust ownership. We look towards the grantor(s), trustees, and beneficiaries as our loan guarantor(s). We may even offer a Non-Recourse Mortgage if the loan to value is lower than 50%
What Borrowing Options Do We Offer To MAPT’s?
Portfolio Loan Programs which are a 30 year amortization loan with either a 5/1 or 7/1 ARM & a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage line of credit. Whichever loan program we can offer will require all loan proceeds to be deposited into a trust checking account controlled by the trustees.
Situations Where Your Clients Are Seeking Financing
- Existing HELOC is recasting or has a balloon payment coming due
- Home Health Care for Spouse/Parent
- Home Improvements----to accommodate aging in Place
- Help Grand Children with debt, college educations, etc.
