Family Owned Business - Getting Loan

Family Owned Business - Getting Loan

I have another question out there but this is more concise.


Should there be any issue with me getting a loan when I am a w-2 Employee with a business that was recently sold to my family (100% assets are going to be my husbands).


For 5 years, I was w-2 under the former owner (he passed away earlier this year), and I will continue to be w-2 under the family owned business part as well (approx 3 mo under our ownership). I will be the only one on the loan, not my husband. 


Thank you!

That should not be a problem as long as we can document employment with your W2's and probably a letter of explanation. Mod Cut

Thanks Bart - I may do just that. 


I did get preapproved with BOA (which was required to go thru the offer process as it was a bank owned property), but I have a feeling if it went through underwriting it would get stuck. We have plenty of funding and I even have $50K in outstanding monies to the new organization. w-2s averaged $150K for past 2 years. I just hope someone can see that I'm good for it but I understand the cause for concern.


Will see if we get accepted on the offer, and will absolutely message you. Thank you for reaching out.
