Re: DTI appears high, but fiancé pays half of mortgage...
You may be able to just state how much YOU pay in mortgage similar to a situation of renting with a roommate. The bank may want to see your bank statements showing your only paying half or a deposit every month of her half going into your account or if it is joint, the extra income coming in from your fiancé. If she doesn't have good credit, it could drastically affect your interest rate. So I would tell them your situation to see if there is a work around...no guarantees as they usually want the other half on the loan but they may just approve you by yourself with the lower DTI AFTER they run the app jointly and can see her financials along with yours. If she has great credit, I would just do a joint app.
