Timeshare Foreclosure

Is A Timeshare Foreclosure Considered Mortgage Foreclosure Or Installment Loan?

  • I get this question asked several times a week
  • Many home buyers contact us and ask Is A Timeshare Foreclosure Considered Mortgage Foreclosure Or Installment Loan?
  • Many folks checked HUD Guidelines on waiting period after a time foreclosure
  • It states that a timeshare foreclosure is an installment loan and not a real estate
  • Many folks get told by loan officers and many times by mortgage underwriters that timeshare foreclosure is the same as a real estate foreclosure

In this article, we will discuss and cover the Timeshare Foreclosure Mortgage Guidelines On Home Purchase.

Is Timeshare Considered Real Estate Or Installment Loans

Is Timeshare Considered Real Estate Or Installment Loans

Under HUD guidelines, a loan which is collateralized by an interest in a timeshare is not considered a housing obligation:

  • Under HUD Guidelines on timeshare foreclosure states, there is no waiting period due to timeshare loans considered an installment loans and not a mortgage
  • Timeshare loans are loans which are secured by an interest in a timeshare is considered an Installment Loan
  • This holds true even though the timeshare property results in a timeshare foreclosure
  • Therefore, borrowers with a foreclosure on a timeshare resulting in foreclosure have no waiting period after the timeshare foreclosure to qualify for FHA Home Loans

Waiting Period After Foreclosure

How is the Waiting Period After Foreclosure

There are mandatory after foreclosure to qualify for the following loans:

  • FHA Loans
  • VA Loans
  • USDA Loans
  • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac which is Conventional Loans
  • Jumbo Mortgages
  • NON-QM Loans have no waiting period requirements after housing event and/or bankruptcy

  • VA Loans has a two year waiting period after the recorded date of the deed in lieu of foreclosure and/or foreclosure to qualify
  • USDA has a three-year waiting period to qualify for a USDA Loan after the recorded date of the foreclosure and/or recorded date of the foreclosure
  • Both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has a 7 year waiting period after a standard foreclosure to qualify for a Conventional Loan after the recorded date

The waiting period start clock to qualify for a Conventional Loan starts from the recorded date of the deed in lieu of foreclosure reflected on the public records:

  • Or in the event, if it is a short sale, the actual date of the short sale that is reflected on the HUD-1 Settlement Statement
  • Jumbo Mortgages are considered non-conforming loans
  • This is because they do not conform to Fannie Mae and/or Freddie Mac Conforming Guidelines
  • Most Lenders will set their own waiting period requirements after foreclosure to qualify for Jumbo Loans
  • Most Lenders will require a 7-year waiting period to qualify for a Jumbo Mortgage after foreclosure
