Borrowers may also be eligible for an FHA insured loan on a purchase transaction after 12 months from the completion, discharge, trustee's sale if the borrower meets the requirements for extenuating circumstances Economic Event. 

FHA does not require collection accounts to be paid off as a condition of mortgage approval. However, FHA does recognize that collection efforts by the creditor for unpaid collections could affect the borrower’s ability to repay the mortgage.

If evidence of a payment arrangement is not available, the lender must calculate the monthly payment using 5% of the outstanding balance of each collection, and include the monthly payment in the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio.
