Can I get an FHA loan if I used consumer credit counseling?

By
Mortgage and Lending with Sierra Pacific Mortgage Raleigh

fha loansIf I have used a consumer credit counseling payment plan am I still able to apply for an FHA loan?   The good news is, YES.  However there are some steps that must be taken.

 

Participating in a consumer credit counseling payment program does not disqualify somebody from obtaining an FHA  mortgage.  This is providing that the lender documents one year of the pay-out period has elapsed under the plan and that the buyers payment performance has been acceptable, meaning no late payments on accounts or rent.

 

It is imperative that the buyers loan officer help them receive written permission from the counseling agency to apply for an FHA loan.  There are many caveats to FHA financing and with it come many questions.  Feel free to contact us about this or any other mortgage related question.  We are always glad to help.

Liz -  I never stop educating myself.  As soon as i do I become ineffective to my clients.  Cool thing about Active Rain is that you can read blogs to get the education you need!

Angelina - You bet!

Melissa - There are many things a Realtor must do to do their job wand I can;t begin to imagine all of the variances so I leave that up to the experts- you!  Money?  No problem.  Do it all day long. : )

Carla - Hoop! There it is!  Hoop! There it is!  Hoop! There it is!
