Must be included in the borrower’s liabilities regardless of the payment type or

status. The payment amount must be either:

▪ The greater of:

· 1% of the outstanding balance on the loan or

· Monthly payment reported on the borrower’s credit report, or

▪ The servicer’s documented payment provided the payment will fully amortize

the loan over the repayment term period

 

Kentucky VA Mortgage Guidelines for Student Loans:

Deferred

A payment does not need to be included if written evidence supports that the

student loan debt will be deferred beyond 12 months of closing.

In Repayment

Include loans with payments starting within 12 months. Calculate threshold

payment as a rate of 5% of outstanding balance divided by 12 months. If credit

report payment is higher, use credit report payment. If current documentation

from student loan servicer reflects actual terms and payment for each loan,

the verified payments may be used even if less than the threshold payment

calculation.

Kentucky USDA Mortgage Guidelines For Student Loans

Fixed Payment

A permanent amortized, fixed payment is used when documentation supports fixed payment, interest and term.

Non-Fixed payment

Use 1% of the loan balance reflected on the credit report. Payment arrangements

that are deferred or non-fixed (Income Based Repayment (IBR), graduated, adjustable, interest only, etc.) may not be used.

Fannie

Loans in Repayment Period

▪ If provided, use the credit report payment

▪ If credit report is incorrect, obtain student loan documentation from the servicer

to verify the payment used for qualification

may be qualified with a $0 payment if the documentation supports it.

Loans in Deferment or Forbearance

▪ A payment equal to 1% of the outstanding student loan balance (even if this

amount is lower than the actual fully amortizing payment) or

▪ A fully amortizing payment using the documented loan repayment terms

Freddie

Loans in Repayment

or outstanding loan balance as shown on credit report.

Loans in Deferment or Forbearance

current outstanding loan balance as shown on the credit report.

Loan Forgiveness

▪ Monthly payment is deferred and/or in forbearance and full balance of the loan will be forgiven, canceled, discharged or will be paid if qualified for an employment-contingent repayment program and

▪ Borrower currently meets requirements for the student loan forgiveness/cancelation program

Obtain documentation from the student loan servicer to show the loan will be forgiven, canceled, discharged or that the borrower qualifies and is approved under an employment contingent repayment program that will extinguish the debt.

Kentucky Rural Housing USDA – Upcoming Changes – October 2016 Submit your applications beginning Tuesday, September 13, 2016


th

The USDA has announced exciting changes that will be implemented in October 2016. USDA is a great product that offers 100% financing, zero down payment for certain rural areas.

Effective in October 2016, there will be two big changes to the USDA product:

  • The Up Front Funding Fee will be reduced to 1%. It currently stands at 2.75%. This reduction can help to reduce the total loan amount. 
  • The Monthly PMI will be reduced to .35%. It currently stands at .50%. 

These two significant changes by the USDA program will certainly be welcomed and will help borrowers to obtain their dream home.
