Standard & Poor Corp.'s plans to publish rating criteria later this summer, cover Section 8 housing bond deals in which the underlying contract is scheduled to expire before the maturity date of bonds. Although such non-coterminous bond deals are fairly rare, they are expected to become more common as more long-term Section 8 rental housing subsidy contracts with the U.S. federal government are exhausted. As per the deal property owners who fail to meet their contractual obligations such as by maintaining the property in good physical condition may find their contracts terminated.
