STUDENT LOAN CLARIFICATION FOR ALL LOAN PROGRAMS

April 19, 2016
 
STUDENT LOAN CLARIFICATION FOR ALL LOAN PROGRAMS
PROGRAM
GUIDELINE
FNMA
For all student loans, whether deferred, in forbearance, or in repayment (not deferred), the lender must use the greater of the following to determine the monthly payment to be used as the borrower’s recurring monthly debt obligation:
  • 1% of the outstanding balance; or
  • The actual documented payment (documented in the credit report, in documentation obtained from the student loan lender, or in documentation supplied by the borrower).
If the payment currently being made cannot be documented or verified, 1% of the outstanding balance must be used.
Exception: If the actual documented payment is less than 1% of the outstanding balance and it will fully amortize the loan with no payment adjustments, the lender may use the lower, fully-amortizing monthly payment to qualify the borrower.
FHLMC
Use the following:
  • The payment on the credit report
  • 1% of the outstanding balance or
  • The actual documented fully amortizing payment.
FHA
Student loans:
Regardless of the payment status, the mortgagee must use:
  • The GREATER of:
    • 1% of the outstanding balance on the loan; or
    • The monthly payment reported on the credit report; or
  • The actual documented payment, provided the payment will fully amortize the loan over its term.
For example:
Student loan reporting on credit with a balance of $15,000 and a payment of $55.00. 1% of the balance is greater than the payment reporting, so you would use 1%.
If there is documentation showing a fully amortized payment of $125.00, you could use that payment instead of the 1%.
VA
May be excluded from the borrower’s total monthly obligations with evidence of a minimum of 12 months deferment from date of closing.
 
If there is no monthly payment reflected on the credit report, a copy of the borrower’s payment letter or promissory note should be used to determine what payment amount to use.
USDA
Fixed payment loans:  A fixed payment may be used in the debt ratio when the lender retains documentation to verify the payment is fixed, the interest rate is fixed, and the repayment term is fixed.  There must be no future adjustments to the terms of the student loan payments.
Non-Fixed payment loans:  Payments for deferred loans, Income Based Repayment (IBR), Graduated, Adjustable, and other types of repayment agreements which are not fixed cannot be used in the total debt ratio calculation.  One percent of the loan balance reflected on the credit report must be used as the monthly payment.  No additional documentation is required.

Who is eligible for Kentucky VA loans?

Featured

Who is eligible for Kentucky VA loans?

Kentucky VA loans are available to veterans of the United States Armed Forces, including those who are on active duty or reserve, as well as widows or widowers of veterans. There are also special circumstances under which spouses of veterans can also apply for eligibility.
Keep in mind, you’ll need to provide a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) in order to prove you are entitled to receive VA financing. Visit the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs website to learn how to obtain a COE. Your lender can also help you obtain a COE based on your unique circumstances.

What benefits do Kentucky VA Loans offer veterans?

Kentucky VA loan program comes with special advantages other mortgage loan products don’t have. Here are just a few benefits of Kentucky VA loans:
Flexible qualifying and credit requirements
Lower interest rates
Zero down payment
No private monthly mortgage insurance (PMI)
Property tax exemptions
There are even grants that allow disabled veterans to make modifications to their home. Another important benefit to point out includes the ability to finance a substantial portion of the closing costs associated with purchasing a home.

In order to get you pre-approved, I will need the following items from you. This is a free process and I will give you a copy of your credit report for free.

VA Loan Checklist
The following is a list of documents that may be required to process your VA mortgage loan:
One full month’s worth of pay stubs
Last 2 years W-2′s
Last 2 years tax returns
Copy of your DD214
Your VA Certificate of Eligibility (we can help you get this if needed)
Last two months bank statements for all accounts

I don’t need originals, copies are fine. You can fax or email me the above documents.

Let me know your questions.

Thanks and look forward to helping you

Kentucky VA IRRRL Program Highlights for a VA Refinance

  • No Appraisal.  (min 640 FICO)
  • 640 Min FICO to 100% LTV
  • Mortgage only VA IRRRL allowed
  • No Manufactured Homes (single or double-wide)

The maximum loan term is the original term of the VA loan being refinanced plus ten years, but not to exceed 30 years

The borrower cannot pay off liens other than the existing VA loan from IRRRL proceeds.

Any second lien-holder would have to agree to subordinate. While the borrower may pay any reasonable amount of discount points in cash, only up to two discount points can be included in the loan amount.

An IRRRL cannot be used to take equity out of the property or pay off debts, other than the VA loan being refinanced. Loan proceeds may only be applied to paying off the existing VA loan and to the costs of obtaining or closing the IRRRL. Therefore, the general rule is that the borrower cannot receive cash proceeds from the loan

If you should find that your credit score is lower than you would like, there are a few things you can do to shore up that number, starting with making an effort to pay off your debts. You should make timely payments and keep any credit card balances low; strive to pay off balances monthly.
