This BLOG On Buying House After Foreclosure With NON-QM Loans Was PUBLISHED On August 6th, 2019
Buying House After Foreclosure requires a mandatory waiting period with government and conventional loans. NON-QM Loans do not have waiting period requirements after foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, short sale, and bankruptcy.
- The waiting period requirements depend on the type of loan program. Buying House After Foreclosure is different than buying home after bankruptcy and/or short-sale
- The main difference between buying house after foreclosure versus short sale and/or bankruptcy is the start of the waiting period
- The waiting period does not begin until the foreclosed property has the deed transferred to a different name other than the foreclosed homeowner
In this blog, we will discuss Buying House After Foreclosure and the eligibility requirements on the various loan programs.

- No waiting period after a foreclosure, deed in lieu, short-sale, bankruptcy
- 10% to 20% down payment is required
- Down payment requirements depend on the borrower’s credit scores and the seasoning of the housing event and/or bankruptcy
When Does The Waiting Period Clock Start When Buying House After Foreclosure
The waiting period clock when buying house after foreclosure and/or deed in lieu of foreclosure starts from the date the homeowner has been taken off the deed of the property and not the date the property surrender date.
- This means if a homeowner surrendered the home 10 years ago and the lender just transferred the deed to their name just now, the waiting period just started
- Therefore, the only home loan program this borrower will qualify for are Non-QM loans
- The transfer date of the deed is the waiting period start date
- All lenders that require the waiting period after a housing event will go by the recorded date of the housing event and not the surrender date
- With short-sales, the date of the short-sale is the waiting period start date
- The waiting period start date after bankruptcy is the discharged date of the bankruptcy and not the filing date
Borrowers who cannot qualify for government and/or conventional loans can qualify for Non-QM mortgages. There is no waiting period requirement after a housing event and/or bankruptcy. However, a larger down payment is required.
