Re: Automated Approvals & Manually Underwritten Loans....... What is the difference?

Hello, not sure if this is the right spot, but need a conventional loan expert about DU/LP approvals.  

 

According to MyFico's mortgage model, I have a mid 703 fico score.  I have a couple of issues though.  First, my credit utlization was 37% (4500 on 12000), I have now paid them off but they will not report until June 6th.  Second, I had a bankruptcy in Dec of 2013, discharged in April 2014 due to cancer and mortgage loan crisis.  There was a forclosure, but it is showing up on only one credit bureau and it is inaccurate.  I am trying to get it disputed and resolved.  Regardless, even with the foreclosure issue in dispute, with the credit cards paid off, my score should go up 10-20 points which I know can make a difference.  

 

Problem I have is that I am starting a new job 800 miles away in 2 weeks, and school starts for the kids Aug 1.  So I don't have much time to buy a home.  If I let the lender pull my credit now and he also does a DU/LP approval and it does not come back satisfactory, what are my options?  If everything is fixed in the next two weeks on the credit report, can a new DU/LP approval be run?  What happens if I go to another lender who does a DU/LP approval in a few weeks, would they use the old approval or would they get a new one based on the new credit report?

 

Thank you for your time and help.  

 

P.S. I can't go FHA because of student loan debt.

The foreclosure is going to kill you.  I think but can't recall with FHA its atleat 2 years and possibly longer. Conv I know it not shorter.  Even if your over the their foreclosure minimum they still will see it.  Work on removal  and if that does not work better have some explaining to do.

Re: Automated Approvals & Manually Underwritten Loans....... What is the difference?

If you paid your credit card debt to zero, then you will not gain any points. You actually stand to lose up to 20 points. If you have more than one credit card, the best thing to do is pay all of them to $0 except one. The one that you don't pay to $0, leave a balance on there that is 1-9% of the credit limit on that card. 

 

Why can you not do FHA because of student loans? There are tons of people that do FHA with student debt.

Thank you for the response, FHA requires 1% of the loan balance which will kill my DTI.

Re: Automated Approvals & Manually Underwritten Loans....... What is the difference?

Just curious, does it make that much of a difference because of the declarations section on the 1003?

Hi Hopefulbutlost,

 

Ok so you have a couple of concerns here.

1) Fannie Mae requires 4 years after a bk discharge so you're asking for an exception based on extenuating circumstances.

2) This will cause problems for DU/LP because you're technically not eligible. This means your loan will to be manually underwritten.

 

As far as your questions go:

If your credit scores increase, we can pull a new credit report & re-run DU/LP using the new credit.

If you go to another lender, that lender will pull a new credit report & run their own DU/LP.

 

FHA allows a much higher debt to income ratio than Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac so how much is your student loan?

Re: Automated Approvals & Manually Underwritten Loans....... What is the difference?

So how do you go from thin credit to not thin? I have an installment loan that matures in a year. I also have two secured credit cards. What could I do to make this not thin?

Or when someone says seasoned tradelines.
