Recent Late Payments Mortgage Guidelines Case Scenario
Let’s take a case scenario.
- Let’s say John Smith recently sold his home and made a substantial profit due to the equity he had on this home
- His mortgage loan balance is now paid off and has no mortgage
- However, he had multiple late payments on his mortgage in the past 12 months
- John Smith will have a hard time to qualify for a new mortgage on his next home purchase due to the late payments in the past 12 months on his previous mortgage
- This still holds true even though he sold his home and has his previous mortgage payment paid off
- Recent Late Payments Mortgage Guidelines on government and conventional loans require timely payments in the past 12 months to get an approve/eligible per automated underwriting system (AUS)
- One or two late payments in the past 12 months is not always a deal killer
- However, multiple late payments in the past 12 months will be an issue in getting an approve/eligible per AUS
- The good news is that John Smith can qualify for non-QM Loans with late payments in the past 12 months. 10% to 20% down payment will be required
Non-QM mortgage rates are higher than government and/or conventional loans. After a year, John Smith can refinance the non-QM Mortgage to a traditional government and/or conventional loan.
