How do I qualify for the $1,000 Martin County Utility Incentive and the 10 year, $85/month on-bill payment plan?
If you live in the home and the meter is in your name, you may apply for the payment plan through SELF.
To qualify for the financing plan you must be: Current on your mortgage; current on property taxes; current no delinquencies past 30 days in the last 12 months on your utility bill.
What happens if I can’t pay the loan or the utility bill?
Your loan becomes a part of your utility bill so the same rules apply. After 45 days the utilities will be shut off service. Under exceptional circumstances you contact SELF and apply to re-finance the loan.
Note: Fees for refinancing will apply and loan terms and conditions will differ from the $85/month, 10 year payment plan.
If I don’t pay the $85 loan on my utility bill, can I lose my home?
No, the SELF-S2S loan is an unsecured personal loan. If you are delinquent or default you will have negative impacts on your credit score and SELF will continue to collect the loan and, MCU will disconnect your service.
What happens if I sell my home?
If you sell your home you will need to pay off that loan at time of sale. The S2S loan is a personal loan and is not tied to the home. As soon as the meter is transferred to another name you will have to pay off the loan to SELF.
If I am a renter and want to have sewer service, can I take out a loan?
If the meter is in your name and you have authorization from the homeowner to make this improvement, you may qualify. However, if you leave the home, you will have to pay off the loan since the loan is in your name.
You may seek to reach an agreement with your landlord so that they will take out a loan with SELF independently, that is not tied to the utility bill. *Conditions will vary from the $85 on-bill payment plan.
If I am a home owner but do not live in the home, do I qualify for the incentive and the S2S financing option with SELF?
Yes, if you are the owner of the house, and don’t live in the house, you may still qualify for the incentive if you connect to the service by paying for the connection out of pocket or seeking an independent loan with SELF outside the $85 on-bill payment plan. The incentive will apply to the project financing.
