Kentucky FHA Loans Beginning January 27, 2017 will have lower mortgage insurance fees

 

For the first time in two years, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has announced that it will be lowering its annual mortgage insurance premiums for Kentucky FHA Homebuyers and homeowners looking to refinance a FHA mortgage loan

Kentucky Homeowners with an existing FHA loan that haven’t refinanced in the past two years may be able to reduce their payment and get a lower monthly payment.

U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro said on Monday the FHA will reduce the annual premiums most borrowers will pay by a quarter of a percent, or 25 basis points, for most new mortgages with a closing or disbursement date on or after January 27th of 2017. The new rates are projected to save new FHA-insured homeowners an average of $500 this year, Castro said.

When the FHA announced late last year that its flagship fund, the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund, grew for the fourth straight year, it led to many question whether we would see a cut to its mortgage insurance premiums again. Now we have an answer. Click the headline for the full details on the FHA reducing mortgage insurance premiums.

Deferred Student Loans for FHA Loans for a Kentucky FHA Mortgage loan approval.

getting-a-mortgage-with-student-loans-640x300

FHA recently change the guidelines for getting a Kentucky mortgage loan approved with student loans. This works to your advantage versus the old guidelines.

Mortgagees must use the guidance in Mortgagee Letter (ML) 16-08 for case numbers assigned on or after June 30, 2016.

The Mortgagee must include the monthly payment shown on the credit report, loan agreement or payment statement to calculate the Borrower’s debts.

If the credit report does not include a monthly payment for the loan, the Mortgagee must use the amount of the monthly payment shown in the loan agreement or payment statement.

If the monthly payment shown on the credit report is utilized to calculate the monthly debts, no further documentation is required.

If the credit report does not include a monthly payment for the loan, the Mortgagee must use the amount of the monthly payment shown in the loan agreement or payment statement.

If the monthly payment shown on the credit report is utilized to calculate the monthly debts, no further documentation is required.

If the credit report does not include a monthly payment for the loan, or the payment reported on the credit report is greater than the payment on the loan agreement or payment statement, the Mortgagee must obtain a copy of the loan agreement or payment statement documenting the amount of the monthly payment.

If a student loan is not deferred, the debt is considered an installment loan and FHA will count the actual monthly payment for the obligation.

This includes the actual monthly payment for the obligation that is being paid under an income-based repayment plan, which may include an actual monthly payment of $0.

FHA and HUD just came out with an updated Mortgagee Letter 16-08 in regards to Deferred Student Loans for FHA Loans for a Kentucky FHA Mortgage loan approval.
 
Previously had to count 2% of balance against DTI,  it is changed to 1% of balance against DTI.  See below from the Letter.  
 
Student Loans
(4) Calculation of Monthly Obligation
Regardless of the payment status, the Mortgagee must use either:
the greater of:
– 1 percent of the outstanding balance on the loan; or
– the monthly payment reported on the Borrower’s credit report;   or
the actual documented payment, provided the payment will fully amortize the loan over its term.
