More details about Morrison & Foerster’s mortgage assistance program, which should arouse the interest of all you house-buying hopefuls out there. Starting in September, the firm will offer to lawyers who take out bank loans for 80 percent of the price of new homes a second loan of up to $75,000 to cover a down payment. For a $500,000 property, for example, an attorney could put down as little as 5 percent in cash at the closing. Lawyers must pay back the MoFo loan through payroll deductions over five years.
