New 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.
Borrowers with a prior bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed-in-lieu, or short sale may be eligible for an FHA insured loan if the bankruptcy, foreclosure, deed-in-lieu, short sale was the result of a documented extenuating circumstance.
New 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.
FHA loan requirements include a maximum debt to income ratio. When a borrower applies for an FHA mortgage, they are required to disclose all debts, open lines of credit, and all possible approved sources of regular income. Using this data, the lender and FHA can calculate the borrower's debt-to-income ratio.
