Land Contract (LC) Guarantee Program

 
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.
