We were in the process of all of our paperwork for our mortgage, and BAM. Underwriter denied me for the sole fact my reposession is still reporting from over 6 years ago. It is not paid, and it is supposed to drop off in January 2014. I refuse to make payments on it since it is only a year away from dropping off. So we went from being able to look at 132k homes to 70k homes. My fiance is fine but without my income we can't afford more . Such a stressful day

Maybe you could look for another place to loan through? Call around and see if anyone would be willng to work with you?

Completely get it! My lender said my mid score needed to be 620. I hit it on Monday with a 628.. Today when the lender pulled it was lower..
Just look on the brightside and realize everything happens for a reason. Hang in there!

Refuse to make payments because its only a year away from falling off? Remember this is still your debt and your responsibility I would just pay it off and have them do a rapid rescore
