What's the minimum credit score for an FHA streamline?
The answer is. There is no minimum credit score required.
All the major banks Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, Citigroup, etc. have minimum credit score guidelines. What this means is that all the major banks including Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, Citigroup, etc. banks make the rules for the loans they approve.
Because the banks make the rules for loans they will approve they may require a minimum credit score of 640 for their loans. These guidelines are the bank's guidelines. When you apply for an FHA streamline loan at a major bank and they tell you their minimum credit score requirement is 640. This does not mean that it's the same as FHA's minimum credit score requirements.
It means that they are the bank's minimum credit score guidelines.
