Before insuring any such mortgage payments the director shall determine that:

(A) The project, in accordance with section 13 of Article VIII, Ohio Constitution, will create or preserve jobs and employment opportunities, or improve the economic welfare of the people of the state, or be an air quality facility, waste water facility, or solid waste facility, as defined in section 3706.01 , 6121.01 , 6123.01 of the Revised Code.

(D) The mortgagor is responsible and able to meet the payments under the mortgage.

(E) The mortgage contains complete amortization provisions satisfactory to the director requiring periodic payments by the mortgagor which may include principal and interest payments, cost of local property taxes and assessments, land lease rentals, if any, and hazard insurance on the property and such mortgage insurance premiums as are required under section 122.561 of the Revised Code, all as the director from time to time prescribes or approves.

(F) The mortgage is in such form and contains such terms and provisions with respect to property insurance, repairs, alterations, payment of taxes and assessments, default reserves, delinquency charges, default remedies, anticipation of maturity, additional and secondary liens, and other matters as the director may prescribe.

The director may take assignments of insured mortgages and other forms of security and may take title by foreclosure or conveyance to any project when an insured mortgage loan thereon is clearly in default and when in the opinion of the director such acquisition is necessary to safeguard the mortgage insurance fund, and may sell, or on a temporary basis lease or rent, such project.
