Re: Started the process

Good luck! We started in late November and hopefully we are in the final stretch with 2 weeks until closing. I’m pretty nervous. We got a FHA loan also, so if you have any question, just ask!

Re: Started the process

Hello,

 

Good to hear you have decided to become a homeowner this year. I wanted to let you know that unless you are self employed, FHA does not require tax returns. Only 30 days paycheck stubs, 2 years W2s, and be able to verify your employment with your employer via VOE. Make sure you ask your Loan Officer if their company requires a 4506-T pulled and transcripts from the IRS received before you fund.  IF so you could be in trouble. My company and many other lenders no longer require IRS transcripts if you are a cookie cutter W2 wage earner.

 

Best wishes to you!

what do you mean FHA doesn’t require them? I’m going through something horrible and I was told that FHA required my tax returns. Now they are threatening to not approve it because of my tax returns. This is coming from FHA not my lender, at least that’s what they are telling me.

Re: Started the process

@lanah, if you read what @homeloanexpert wrote, he said that his company & other lenders do not require tax returns, he didn't mention anything that FHA requires. Every company has different criteria's yet similar concept. If your current lender is requiring more than what you are able to give, then explore other lenders. I've literally read 4-5 recent posts of you venting about the same thing, and I'm sorry that you're going through such a stressful situation -- but if possible, just take a breather and know that you have options out there. You aren't entitled to just one lender.

Just an update we got approved for an even better preapproval from another bank of $150k conventional loan that pays 3% down and all we have to do  is  put down 500 dollars and pay closing fees but my mom whose a broker says we can probably get the seller to pay this so this is really great news for us we are just about ready to put an offer down on a house we narrowed it down to 2 houses  gotta make a  choice so hopefully sometime this week lol
