Origination Fees

Loan origination fees consist of points, generally 2%-5% of the original loan principal. These payments are amortized over the life of the loan for financial statement purposes.

Original maturities of deferred revenue are as follows as of:

June 30, 
















In instances in which mortgages are repaid before their maturity date, the balance of any unamortized deferred revenue is recognized in full at the time of repayment.

Unfunded Commitments

Most loans are funded in full at closing. However, where all or a portion of the loan proceeds are to be used to fund the costs of renovating or constructing improvements on the property, only a portion of the loan may be funded at closing. At June 30, 2021, the Company’s mortgage loan portfolio included 130 loans with future funding obligations, in the aggregate principal amount of $31,845,533. Advances under these loans are funded against requests supported by all required documentation (including lien waivers) as and when needed to pay contractors and other costs of construction.


In the normal course of its business, the Company is named as a party-defendant because it is a mortgagee having interests in real properties that are being foreclosed upon, usually because the owner failed to pay property taxes. The Company actively monitors these actions and, in all cases, believes there remains sufficient value in the subject property to assure that no loan impairment exists. At June 30, 2021, there were 7 such properties, representing approximately $834,000 in mortgages receivable.
