FHA minimum credit score - FHA changed it's minimum credit score requirements. FHA now requires a minimum credit score of 500 to be eligible for a FHA loan.
The FHA has taken the following steps
FHA does not require that collection accounts be paid off as a condition of mortgage approval. Auto repossession, medical collection accounts, credit card collection account and any other collection accounts do not have to be paid off.
Collection accounts in the borrower’s credit history already results in lowering the credit scores used in the approval process and thus no action is required by the borrower.
If the credit report reveals that the borrower is disputing any credit accounts or public records, the disputes must be resolved. FHA will not allow you to close on a loan with disputed accounts unless the disputed account has a zero balance; is marked as "paid in full" or "resolved"; or has both a balance less than $500.00 and the date of the dispute is more than 24 months old.
To get disputed accounts resolved and updated on your credit report go to www.annualcreditreport.com. Create a file for each credit bureau Equifax, Trans Union and Experian. When you create your file write down your file number and write down the phone number for the credit bureau.
Call each credit bureau and tell them you are no longer disputing any accounts on your credit report. Your credit report will be updated within 30 days.
