FHA Changes rules for Self Employed Borrowers ROUND 2

Documentation Requirements for Self-Employed Borrowers – Effective for all case numbers ordered on or after April 1, 2012.

1.        All FHA files for self-employed borrowers require a YTD P&L AND Balance Sheet for every business covering the time from the last files tax return to the end of the most recent quarter – NO EXCEPTIONS

2.       Annual earnings that are stable or increasing are acceptable. Earnings reflecting a significant decline in income over the analysis period (25% or more) are not acceptable for use, even if the current income and debt ratios meet FHA guidelines.

3.       Also, please note that FHA still will not allow the add-back of expenses for business use of home when calculating Schedule C income.

 

I hope this helps to clarify the new requirements. Call me anytime for the latest info as it hapend and sometimes before it happens!

Mark - it looks like investors can be better off with not FHA loans. It is dificult, but it is difficult with FHA as well

Self employed borrowers are a bit more challenging when it comes to the pre-qualifications
