FHA NEW GUIDELINES!
FHA Has NEW Guidelines Starting on September 19th!
As mortgage professionals, it’s our job to inform our clients and realtors of updated loan guidelines so the borrowers can make the best decision.
-No more excluding student loans
-Non taxable income will only be grossed up 115%
-Authorized user accounts will be included in the DTI
-Rental income not claimed on the tax returns now requires 25% equity in the property
-Max age of all docs is 90 days
-Streamlines now require proof of occupancy with utility bills or employment documentation
Changes For The Better:
-Tax liens and judgements can remain open with a payment plan and 3 months payments
