Student Loans In Collections, What Can I Do to get Approved For A Kentucky Mortgage ?

Student Loans In Collections, What Can I Do?
If you have public student loans in collections, you really have three options to resolve it so it is not a CAIVRS issue.
1.      Pay it off in full – Not typically an option because very rarely do the clients have the funds to do so.
2.      Consolidation – Only takes about 90 days to consolidate and resolve CAIVRS issues. However, you push forward the last activity dates, DLA, and also introduce a new credit trade line that dilutes the length of the credit history. So you will normally see a drop in credit score.
3.      Rehabilitation – It is the slowest of all the options, but is the best thing for the clients’ credit scores. It is a 9 month commitment and once the client makes 9 consecutive payments, they will change the collection status to a good standing status. This will typically net a 40-100 point boost in the score depending on how many other collections are on the credit report.
If your client does not know who is servicing the student loan, they can contact the Student Loan Default Resolution Team at 1-800-621-3115 or visit the website at myeddebt.ed.gov
Bonus Tip: Private student loans do not adhere to consolidation or rehabilitation rules. If the client has private student loans in collections they will need to pay them off in full, or they will need to set up a payment plan on them. They will still remain in collections with a payment, but if you can get a qualified credit score you can push forward the loan including the liability payment towards the debt to income ratio.

Guidelines for KY FHA, VA, USDA and VA Mortgage loans with Student Loans on A Credit Report:
Kentucky Fannie Mae or Conventional Guidelines for Student Loans:
  • If a monthly payment is on the credit report, the lender may use that amount for qualifying purposes.
  • If a monthly payment is on the credit report is incorrect, the lender may use the monthly payment on the most recent student loan statement
  • If the monthly payment on the credit report is zero, the lender must use one of the following options to calculate the payment for qualifying purposes
  1. Document the borrower is on an income driven payment plan and the actual monthly payment is zero
  2.  Use 1% of the outstanding student loan balance as the monthly payment
  3. Calculate a fully amortized payment using documented loan repayment terms
Kentucky FHA Mortgage Loans Guidelines:
Regardless of the payment status (currently in payment or deferred), the lender must use either:
  • The greater of:
  1. 1% of the outstanding balance; or
  2. The monthly payment reported on the credit; or
  •  Calculate a fully amortized payment using documented loan repayment terms
Kentucky USDA or Rural Housing Guidelines:
 
 
Regardless of the payment amount reporting on the credit, the lender must include the payment as follows:
  • A permanent amortized, 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.
  • 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.
Kentucky  VA Mortgage Guidelines for Student Loan:
  • If the borrower can document the student loan will be deferred 12 months from the closing date, the monthly payment does not need to be considered
  • If a student loan is in repayment or scheduled to begin repayment within 12 months from the closing date, the threshold payment amount must be calculated by  using 5% of the loan balance divided by 12 months
  • If the payment reporting on the credit report is greater than the threshold payment calculation amount, then the credit report payment must be used for ratios.
  • If the payment reporting on the credit report is less than the threshold payment calculation and the lender is using the lower payment to qualify the borrower then:
  1. A statement from the student loan servicer reflecting the actual loan terms and payment information must be included in the file.
  2. The statement must be dated within 60 days of closing
  3. It is the underwriter’s discretion to use the lower payment

As you can see, Fannie Mae or Conventional loans is the most lenient when it comes to qualifying for a mortgage loan with someone that has a lot of student loans on their credit report.

Here are action steps you can take right now to buy a home in Kentucky in 2019


1. Focus on your credit score

FICO credit scores are among the most frequently used credit scores, and range from 350-800 (the higher, the better). A consumer with a credit score of 750 or higher is considered to have excellent credit, while a consumer with a credit score below 620 is considered to have poor credit.

To qualify for a mortgage and get a low mortgage rate, your credit score matters.

Each credit bureau collects information on your credit history and develops a credit score that lenders use to assess your riskiness as a borrower. If you find an error, you should report it to the credit bureau immediately so that it can be corrected.


2. Manage your debt-to-income ratio

Many lenders evaluate your debt-to-income ratio when making credit decisions, which could impact the interest rate you receive.

A debt-to-income ratio is your monthly debt payments as a percentage of your monthly income. Lenders focus on this ratio to determine whether you have enough excess cash to cover your living expenses plus your debt obligations.

Since a debt-to-income ratio has two components (debt and income), the best way to lower your debt-to-income ratio is to:

First Ratio – The first ratio, top ratio or housing ratio. Basically that means out of all the gross monthly income you make, that no more that X percent of it can go to your housing payment. The housing payment consists of Principle, Interest, Taxes and Insurance. Whether you escrow or not every one of these items are factored into your ratio. There are a lot of exceptions to how high you can go, but let’s just say that if your ratio is 33% or less, generally, across the board, you’re safe.

Second Ratio- The second ratio, bottom ratio or debt ratio includes the housing payment, but also adds all of the monthly debts that the borrower has. So, it includes housing payment as well as every other debt that a borrower may have. This would include, Auto loans, credit cards, student loans, personal loans, child support, alimony….basically any consistent outgoing debt that you’re paying on. Again, if you’re paying less than 45% of your gross monthly income to all of the debts, plus your proposed housing payment, then……generally, you’re safe. You can go a lot higher in this area, but there are a lot of caveats when increasing your back ratio.

3. Keep credit utilization low on your credit cards

Lenders also evaluate your credit card utilization, or your monthly credit card spending as a percentage of your credit limit.

Ideally, your credit utilization should be less than 30%. If you can keep it less than 10%, even better.

For example, if you have a $10,000 credit limit on your credit card and spent $3,000 this month, your credit utilization is 30%.

Here are some ways to manage your credit card utilization:
set up automatic balance alerts to monitor credit utilization
ask your lender to raise your credit limit (this may involve a hard credit pull so check with your lender first)
pay off your balance multiple times a month to reduce your credit utilization


4 . Look for down payment assistance in Kentucky

There are various types of down payment assistance, even if you have student loans.

Here are a few:
FHA loans – federal loan through the Federal Housing Authority
USDA loans – zero down mortgages for rural and suburban homeowners
VA loans – if military service

7 Major FHA Rule Changes – Effective June 15, 2015

As you probably know, HUD has scrapped their old underwriting handbook and has re-written the whole darn thing which they will be implementing on all case numbers order on or after June 15. What they DIDN’T do was indicate which rules were CHANGED significantly from the previous handbook. We compared both the old and the new handbook and found 46 rule changes. Here are seven of them.

Earnest Money

Old Rule – Document source of earnest money if the amount exceeds 2% of the sales price

New Rule – Document source of earnest money if the amount exceeds 1% of the salesprice

CAVIRS

Old Rule – Federal debt makes borrower ineligible

New Rule – VERIFIED federal debt makes the borrower ineligible

Part-Time Income

Old Rule – Underwriter discretion allowed when received less than 2 years

New Rule – Two years uninterrupted part-time income is required. Average income over prior 2 years or use 12-month average of hours at the current pay rate if the lender documents an increase in pay rate.

Rental Income on Retained Primary Residence

Old Rule – Rental income may be counted when relocating outside of reasonable commute distance for job and borrower has 25% equity.

New Rule – Rental income may be counted when relocating and the new residence is at least 100 miles from previous residence. If no history of rental income since the last tax filing, borrower must have 25% equity.

Non-taxable income

Old Rule – Gross up using tax rate evidenced on last tax return. If borrower did not filea return, use tax rate of 25%.

New Rule – Gross up using the greater of 15% or actual tax rate. If borrower did not file a tax return, use tax rate of 15%

Installment Debts Less Than 10 Months

Old Rule – May be excluded from ratios. If manual underwrite—may be excluded if debt will not affect ability to pay the mortgage.

New Rule – May be excluded ONLY if—they have cumulative payment of less than or equal to 5% of the borrower’s gross monthly income AND the borrower may not pay the debts down to achieve this percentage.

Multiple FHA Loans

Old Rule – If relocating for employment, borrower may obtain a second FHA loan for a new principal residence if current residence is more than a reasonable commute to new residence.

New Rule – If relocating for employment, the commuting distance between the old residence and new residence must be more than 100 miles.

FHA mortgage insurance premiums won’t be going down in 2015 | 2014-11-18 | HousingWire

FHA mortgage insurance premiums won’t be going down in 2015 | 2014-11-18 | HousingWire.

What are the 2014 Kentucky FHA Guidelines for credit scores, down payments, cash out, and mortgage insurance requirements for a FHA Mortgage loan?

Kentucky FHA Program guidelines have been updated as follows:

For a Kentucky FHA Purchase Loan, we can go down to a 600 credit score with the minimum down payment of 3.5%.  No bankruptcies or foreclosures in the last 2 years.

If you are getting cash out, then the max loan to value or equity position is limited to 85% of the homes value. For example, if you had a home that was valued at $100,000, then the max loan for a FHA Cash Out in Kentucky would be $85,000.00. You still have to may mortgage insurance for life of loan so think carefully about using FHA for a cashout refinance.

The maximum debt to income ratios will be set by the AUS when we run it, but for a refer, it will be limited to 31% and 43% respectively. For example, if you make $3000 a month gross income, the max house payment would be $930.00 piti, and the maximum monthly payments including the new house payment would be $1290.00. So in the above example, the most you could have left in monthly bills listed on the credit report would be $360.00–If you had child support this would count in the dti calculation on the backend ratio of 43%

The seller can pay up to 6% of the buyer’s closing costs and prepaids (property taxes, home insurance for 1st years escrows) of the sales price. So, if you purchased a home for $100,000.00, the seller could give you a concession at closing to pay your closing costs and prepaids. A lot of Kentucky First Time homebuyers use this to limit their cash to close.

The minimum down payment of 3.5% for Kentucky FHA Loans can come from a family member in the form of a gift, or can be borrowed from a 401k, retirement account, or secured asset like a car.

• Seller must own the property a minimum of 90 days prior to the contract date.

FHA loans do not require a termite or home inspection, but they do require a HUD appraisal by a FHA approved Appraiser.

The following changes are effective for all Kentucky  FHA case numbers assigned on or after June 3, 2013: FHA is changing the duration for the collection of MIP
o For all mortgages with an original principal LTV of 90% or less, regardless of loan term, the annual MIP will be assessed for 11 years.
o For all mortgages with an original principal LTV greater than 90%, regardless of loan term, the annual MIP will be assessed for the entire life of the loan.

Loans of 15 year terms or less with LTV 78% or less will pay an MIP amount of 45 bps.

FHA Streamlines Prior to June 2009
FHA Streamlines with case numbers dated June 11, 2012 or later will have new MIP rules applied. If the loan being refinanced was endorsed on or before May 31, 2009, the new Streamline will receive a flat annual MIP of 55 basis points, regardless of loan amount, and the UFMIP ratio will decrease to 0.01% of the base loan amount.
