4. Mortgages Receivable
The Company offers secured, non-bank loans to real estate owners and investors (also known as “hard money” loans) to fund their acquisition, renovation, development, rehabilitation or improvement of properties located primarily in Connecticut, New York and Florida. The loans are secured by first mortgage liens on one or more properties owned by the borrower or related parties. The loans are generally for a term of to three years. The loans are initially recorded and carried thereafter, in the financial statements, at cost. Most of the loans provide for monthly payments of interest only (in arrears) during the term of the loan and a “balloon” payment of the principal on the maturity date.

The following is the maturities of mortgages receivable as of September 30:
At September 30, 2022 there were 92 loans having an aggregate unpaid principal balance of approximately $45.0 million that were past maturity and either in foreclosure or in the process of being extended. Of the 477 mortgage loans in the Company’s portfolio, 44 were the subject of foreclosure proceedings. The aggregate outstanding principal balance of these loans and the accrued but unpaid interest and borrower charges as of September 30, 2022 was approximately $21.4 million.
