PROTECTION OF VETERAN'S EQUITY IN CASE OF ILLNESS, ETC.


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Robert Henry Winters (Minister of Reconstruction and Supply)

Liberal

Hon. Robert H. Winters (Minister of Reconstruction and Supply):

On Thursday last the hon. member for Peterborough West (Mr. Fraser) asked if ways and means were being considered by which a veteran buying a house under any of the government plans could be protected from losing his equity in the house in the event of illness, low wages or work stoppage.

To the extent that the question applies to loans under the National Housing Act, the relationship between the veteran and the lending institution is that of mortgagor and mortgagee. In the normal course of operations, if the borrower encounters financial difficulty, every effort is made to rearrange his payments so that he may maintain the equity in his house. This is usually done through a rearrangement or deferment of payments. If, however, there is no possibility that the borrower can maintain the payments, even after rearrangement, the lending institution proceeds to realize on its security.

The same circumstances exist in the case of a sale of a wartime housing unit to a purchaser.
