In this blog, we will cover and discuss the maximum debt-to-income ratios for AUS approval. One of the key factors in getting an automated DU approval via Fannie Mae’s Automated Approval System is debt to-income ratio requirements. There are two types of mortgage underwriting guidelines: Federal Minimum Mortgage Lending Guidelines set by FHA, VA, USDA, and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac. Mortgage Lender Overlays: Overlays are additional mortgage guidelines set by individual lenders that are above and beyond Federal Mortgage Lending Guidelines. Gustan Cho Associates does not have overlays and just goes off Automated Underwriting System Findings. Every home mortgage program has its own maximum debt-to-income ratio caps.
What Are The Two Qualifying Ratios Used By Mortgage Lenders?
There are two different types of debt-to-income ratios. The first is the front-end debt-to-income ratios. Front End Debt To Income Ratios is the total sum of the principal, interest, insurance, mortgage insurance premium, property taxes, and homeowners association divided by the borrower or borrowers’ total monthly gross income. Front End DTI is also referred to as the housing DTI. The second debt to income ratio is the back-end debt to income ratio. The back-end DTI is the total monthly housing expenses (minimum monthly credit card payments, car payments, student loan payments, installment & revolving minimum monthly payments), including the housing expenses, divided by the total monthly gross income by the borrower or borrowers.
What Are The Back End Debt To Income Ratios
The back-end debt to income ratios include monthly minimum credit card payments, monthly minimum automobile payments, student loan payments, alimony payments, child support payments, and any other minimum required minimum monthly credit payments that are reflected on the credit reports. Utility payments, cell phone payments, cable television payments, and cable payments are not calculated in computing debt to income ratios. The back-end debt to income ratios includes the proposed new home mortgage as well
