Kentucky FHA Mortgage Guidelines Update – Student Loan Debt Policy

Kentucky FHA Mortgage Guidelines Update – Student Loan Debt Policy
125004__v4098

FHA recently announced changes to the existing student loan policy that will positively effect FHA mortgage loan approvals going forward in regards to borrowers with student loans that are deferred.. The changes can be found outlined in Mortgagee Letter 2016-08. Highlights to the changes include:

  • Outstanding balance of student loan calculation utilizing 1% instead of the previously posted 2% in the 4000.1
  • Must use the greater of the outstanding balance, payment listed on the credit report, or the documented fully amortized payment (this means income based repayment on loans currently in default may not be used unless the payment is fully amortized and must be documented as such by the lender).

 

The guidelines below will replace the existing section of our student loan guidance:

Required Documentation

If the payment used for the monthly obligation is:

  • Less than 1% of the outstanding balance reported on the borrower’s credit report, and
  • Less than the monthly payment reported on the borrower’s credit report;

The lender must obtain written documentation of the actual monthly payment, the payment status, and evidence of the outstanding balance and terms from the creditor.

Calculating the Student Loan Obligation

Regardless of the payment status, the lender must use either:

  • The greater of:
    • 1% 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.

If you have any questions about these new guidelines, please give us a call.

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.
