PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING OUT, IT WILL ONLY DELAY THE APPROVAL!
A....CONTRIBUTIONS: Any closing costs normally paid by the property purchaser are considered contributions if they are not paid by the purchaser. The maximum allowable contributions from interested parties, which depend on the loan-to-value ratio and the occupancy type, are limited to---
B....GIFTS (or grants):
Conventional;A borrower can use funds obtained as a gift to satisfy part of the cash requirement for closing only if the donor is a relative, or a church, municipality, or non-profit organization. Even when the borrower receives funds as a gift toward the purchase of a home, the borrower generally must use his or her own funds to cover the required minimum cash outlay, at least 5% of the sales price, the prepaid items that are the responsibility of the property purchaser, and the required cash reserves. However, we will waive this requirement with respect to the minimum cash outlay and allow the full down payment to come from a gift or grant if the loan-to-loan value ration for the mortgage is 80% or less. A gift from a relative must be evidenced by a letter that is signed by the donor. The letter must:
C....SALES PROCEEDS: The proceeds from the sale of a currently owned home are a common and acceptable source for the down payment and closing costs on a new house. A photocopy of the fully executed settlement statement on the sale of the home, which shows sufficient net cash proceeds to consummate the purchase of the new home, must be used to verify the source of these funds.
D....Borrowed Funds: Borrowed funds that are secured by an asset that may be used to secure funds include certificates of deposit, stocks, bonds, automobiles, real estate, and life insurance policies. The lender must verify both the terms of the loan and the fact that it is a secured loan. Monthly payments for the loan must be considered as debt when qualifying the borrower. Examples of unacceptable borrowed funds include signature loans, lines of credit on credit cards, and overdraft protection on checking accounts.
E....Sources of Borrower's Funds: Deposit on sales contract. The lender must verify the deposit amount indicated in the sales contract or escrow instructions when it exceeds 2% of the sales price.
Checking and savings accounts. The Verification of Deposit or last 3 months worth of bank statements should be used to verify these accounts.
F....Cash-in-Hand: Cash-on-Hand is not generally an acceptable source of funds for the down payments or closing costs.
A....RECURRING OBLIGATIONS: The Buyer's liabilities include the following:
B....CONTINGENT LIABILITIES: A contingent liability exists when an individual would be held responsible for payment of a debt should another party default on that payment.
The Buyers ex-spouse was awarded both property and payment responsibility as a result of divorce.
The Buyer is covered by an employer home sale plan.
the loan-to-value ratio does not exceed 75%.
The property was sold to an owner occupant.
The buyer can document other party has made payment for the last 12 months.
The Buyer's ex-spouse was given responsibility for payment of obligation a result of divorce.
C....PROJECTED OBLIGATION: Debt payments coming due within 12 months of mortgage loan must be counted.
D....NON-OBLIGATION: Those obligations not to be considered as debt (nor subtracted from gross income) include the following:
WE ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT A BORROWER'S OVERALL PATTERN OF MAKING PAYMENTS THAN WE ARE ABOUT A FEW INDIVIDUAL OCCURRENCES. IF YOU SEE ANY PROBLEMS ON YOUR PART, CLEAN YOUR CREDIT REQUIREMENTS UP, OR CONTACT US FOR ANY ASSISTANCE, OR FOR ANY QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED.
A....CREDIT HISTORY: the lender should look at the borrower's credit history over the past seven years to determine whether there are any major indications of derogatory credit (such as undisclosed debts, judgements, bankruptcies, etc.). Unless the borrower's credit history over the last 24 months raises some serious concerns (or there are major indications of derogatory credit at any time during the last seven years), the lender can consider a borrower's credit history as acceptable if, over the last 12 months, the borrower has had:
B....DEROGATORY CREDIT: Any judgements, garnishments, or liens must be paid in full before closing.
A bankruptcy must have been discharged fully and the borrower must have re-established good credit and demostrated an ability to manage financial affairs. We consider an elapsed time of at least two years between the discharge of the bankruptcy and the mortgage application as sufficient time to re-establish credit.
Generally, we will not purchase or securitize a mortgage if the borrower(s) has been a defendant in mortgage foreclosure proceedings that were completed in the past three years.
C....LACK OF CREDIT:
Lenders must develope a credit history for borrowers who normally do not use credit or do not have the type of credit history that will appear on a credit report. Credit histories can be developed from rent verifications, from the current and previous landlords, verifications of utility payments and telephone bills, verification of personal property tax payments or verifications from other sources of credit or services for which the borrower has (or had) a regular financial obligation. When adequate credit histories cannot be established, the lender should consider only more conservative mortgage terms, such as a much higher down payment.
