When credit is advanced by note or contract and payment is required in regular equal installments and the note or contract will mature before the note or contract is paid in full, a payment which may be larger than the regular payment will fall due.
Money deposited towards the purchase of a home paid to make up the difference between the purchase price and the mortgage amount not finance with a mortgage. The larger the down payment, the less you need to borrow. Most lenders require the down payment to be paid from the buyer's own funds. Gifts from related parties are sometimes acceptable, and must be disclosed to the lender. However, FHA allows gifts from any source.
