The Land Contract (LC) Guarantee Program is a new FSA loan program that will provide a government backed guarantee to landowners who sell their farm real estate to a beginning or socially disadvantaged farmer/rancher through a private land contract. Under this program there are two options, one that guarantees up to three annual installment payments on the contract and another that guarantees 90% of the unpaid principal balance of the contract. Only new land contracts are eligible for this program and the purchase price must not exceed $500,000. Contracts must be amortized over a minimum of 20 years and the buyer must provide a down payment of 5% of the purchase price. The guarantee period is for 10 years.
All 2009, 2010 and 2011 program participants who received benefits subject to Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) limitations are required to provide written consent to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the disclosure of certain information to FSA. Program participants who have not filed the required consent need to submit form CCC-931 immediately to avoid a request for refund of applicable FSA and NRCS program payments.
