When a home buyer meets a lender’s minimum requirements to qualify for a mortgage loan, the approval and funding time frames could flow along quite smoothly. However, certain conditions might cause a borrower to lack the eligibility requirements for a specific home loan. Lending specialists at Perennial Funding may be able to offer a variety of solutions for borrowers who need to explore alternative methods to obtain financing to buy a home.
Knowing whether a prospective home buyer can secure a mortgage approval is important to sellers, builders and to licensed real estate agents. The reasoning revolves around saving time to search for properties that a borrower is qualified to buy. With a pre-approval in-hand, a borrower has met the initial screening requirements to purchase a home with a specific financing limit.
An additional applicant for a mortgage loan would be consider a co-borrower who intends to live in the subject property. However, a non-occupant co-borrower would provide credit or financial strength to a borrower’s mortgage loan application without the intention of residing within the subject property.
All parties would need to understand that every borrower and non-occupant co-borrower would be responsible for repayment of the mortgage loan.
Generally, a borrower who can afford to make timely monthly payments might have insufficient credit strength or may not have enough income to document for qualifying purposes. Adding a non-occupant co-borrower who has a sufficient amount of income to cover their own expenses and has the ability to meet the approval conditions for the borrower’s new loan could enable a buyer to secure funding for a home.
When a loan approval is questionable, a borrower who can add a qualified non-occupant co-borrower to a mortgage application might be able to proceed toward the settlement table to complete the financing transaction.
