One Year Waiting Period Via HUD’s New FHA Back To Work Extenuating Circumstances Due To An Economic Event Mortgage Loan

The FHA Back To Work Mortgage Program no longer is available. Below is the FHA Back To Work Mortgage Loan Program Guidelines. This blog is a rewrite and has been updated on November 4th, 2017:

The FHA Back To Work Mortgage Loan Program, which no longer exists, was created by HUD, the parent of FHA,  for those folks who had a prior bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, or short sale due to extenuating circumstances. This mortgage loan program shortened the waiting period to qualify for FHA Loans to one year versus the two year after Chapter 7 and three years after foreclosure, deed in lieu, short sale. The program turned out to be a flop.

  • HUD’s new FHA Back to Work extenuating circumstances due to an economic event shortened the waiting period to one year.  
  • There are certain guidelines that borrowers need to qualify to participate in this program. 
  • The borrower needs to have had been unemployed or underemployed for at least six months prior to filing bankurptcy or having a foreclosure proceeding initiated which has resulted in a 20% reduction in household income. 
  • The borrower needs to have re-established his or her credit since the economic event and have no late payments. 
  • The borrower needs to have re-established themselves by having a secure job and show promise that he or she will be employed for the next three years. 
  • The borrower needs to take a one hour HUD approved housing counseling course and get a signed completion certificate. 
  • The borrower should have rental verification. 
  • Borrowers with no rental verifications, a detail letter of explanation need to be provided. 
  • Cases where the borrower lives with family is acceptable. 
  • All FHA Back to Work extenuating circumstances due to an economic event mortgage loan applications are all manual underwrites. 
  • Not too many mortgage lenders are offering this program but I am aggressively processing and underwriting FHA Back to Work extenuating circumstances mortgage loan applications and am getting the first batch of approvals. 

Again, the FHA Back To Work Due To Extenuating Circumstances Mortgage Program no longer exists. NON-QM Loans are now available for borrowers who do not meet the waiting period requirements after bankruptcy and/or foreclosure.

Here are the basics on NON-QM Loans:

  • No Waiting Period After Foreclosure, Deed In Lieu Of Foreclosure, Short Sale 
  • 10% to 20% down payment
  • Minimum credit scores of 640
  • One year waiting period after Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Please contact us at 262-716-8151 or at if you feel you qualify for mortgage loan programs with no lender overlays.
