FHA dti Guidelines 2018 - Debt to income ratios are the calculations underwriters use to determine whether a borrower can qualify for a mortgage. They are used to determine if you have the capacity to repay your mortgage.
There are two calculations. The first or Front Ratio is your housing expense-to-income ratio. This is your proposed mortgage payment (principle, interest, taxes, mortgage insurance, and home owners insurance) divided by your gross monthly income.
The second or Back Ratio is your total monthly obligations-to-income ratio. This is your gross monthly payment including Mortgage PITI divided by your gross monthly income.
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 bank and the FHA calculate the borrower's debt to income ratio.
FHA DTI guidelines
debt to income ratio can be over 55%. Most lenders will limit maximum
debt-to-income to under 50% and some lenders to 45%. FHA uses an electronic loan decision software that approves your loan. If the decision engine likes your loan it may approve your dti above 55%.
