Important Factors for bad credit mortgage approval
If you have a decent credit score, say 650, most prime lenders or bad credit institutional lenders won’t mind giving you the loan. Nevertheless, several indispensable factors are important to consider if the score lies in between ranges.
If your credit score falls between 600 and 700, you may still get a bad credit mortgage loan from certain prime lenders, which may be subject to certain conditions related to their underwriting criteria. For this you would require to demonstrate that you have a dependable source of income. Your income may fall in any of these two categories:
- Income that can be confirmed, proven through Notices of Assessment (NOA) and pay stubs.
- Non-confirmable income, which is common amongst self-employed or commission-based employees, and compels the lender to use an estimate of your income, in determining a figure they may use for their loan calculations.
If you are refinancing, lenders will allow you to increase your mortgage up to a maximum loan-to-value ratio of 85%. However, they always prefer to lend when you have more equity in your home, as the loan is backed by a secured asset.
3) Down payment
A high down payment as a percentage of your home value would help you significantly in qualifying for a bad credit mortgage loan. It demonstrates to lenders that you are able to save money, and have a better stake in the property.
4) Property type and value
For your property to qualify with a bad credit lender, it needs to go through a strict appraisal and requires the rating of average-to-good, based upon the appraisal report prepared. Once these conditions are fulfilled, the lender can take the necessary steps towards approving you for a mortgage.
