2. Subtract your monthly long-term obligations ($400 in the example above) from the amount on line C.
3. Enter the lesser of the two amounts here. This is your Monthly Allowable Housing Expense.

E. Principal and Interest Monthly Payment

Using your Principal and Interest payment, line E, refer to the table on the back at an appropriate interest rate to determine your mortgage amount. In this example we rounded $688 to the nearest payment-$700. Using an interest rate of 9%, the total mortgage amount is $86,997. See highlighted example on the table
