الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما

Answer:

In the given situation, he should make an attempt at immediately paying off the remainder of the loan by acquiring the money through a halal means. One method is to sell the house he is currently living in and thereafter seek a halal method of homeownership.
 
Undoubtedly, this can be a very difficult decision to make which might cause some minor complications in the future. But, since it is being done solely for the pleasure of Allah, we hope he will make it as easy as possible. It can be easily noted in history that those who are willing to tolerate hardship in the path of Allah will find that in due time Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala makes their situation very easy. We pray to Allah that he makes this path very easy for the person involved.

والله اعلم

Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala knows best.
