How Does FHA  Approve Mortgage Applicants with NO Credit?

On this page, we will cover getting a mortgage with no credit score using non-traditional otherwise known as alternate credit tradelines. HUD, the parent of FHA, sets the minimum FHA credit qualifications for FHA mortgage lenders to abide by. FHA home mortgage loans are extremely popular for borrowers with less than perfect credit and or less than 20% downpayment. HUD by way of the FHA mortgage was created to help the underserved FHA mortgage applicants who recently graduated or/and FHA mortgage applicants with a previous bankruptcy, foreclosure or extenuating circumstance may not have tradelines. That is why HUD allows borrowers to be eligible for FHA loans with no credit tradelines. Within this page, we have detailed how FHA mortgage applicants can qualify using alternate tradelines. 

USE ALTERNATE TRADE LINES TO QUALIFY

  1. 12 Months verified payment history. Either 12 months canceled checks/wire transfer or verification of rent from a true management company. Private landlord letters will NOT satisfy the lender. You may be able to avoid the verified rental history requirement if you have 3 months of future mortgage payments after your down payment and closing cost in your account at closing.
  1. ( 3 ) Alternate trade lines- From 3 different sources- Pick from the 3 sources listed below:
  • Alternate trade lines can NOT be handwritten letters. They must be verified bank payments or come from a direct service provider.

Do FHA Mortgage Lenders Require Minimum Credit Tradelines?

FHA mortgage lenders do not have a minimum tradeline requirement. On the other hand, many FHA lenders and banks have minimum credit score and tradelines. For example, most banks will require a minimum 640 credit score and 3 active accounts on your credit with over 12 months of payment history. These Banks have overlays that are higher qualifying requirements above and beyond FHA minimum qualifiers.  Most lenders will require a minimum of three credit tradelines that have been seasoned for at least 12 months as part of their FHA qualifying overlays. Florida FHA mortgage lenders offer FHA mortgages with no minimum credit report trade lines using alternate credit payment histories. 

What Is Considered a Credit Tradeline?

To be considered a credit tradeline, the FHA mortgage applicants need to show 12 months of payment history on their credit report. Borrowers can qualify for a mortgage with no active credit tradelines. If the borrower has no credit scores because there are no credit tradelines that are current or in the past, FHA mortgage lenders can use nontraditional credit tradelines to qualify for an FHA loan. Nontraditional credit tradelines that FHA mortgage lenders can use to show the borrower’s creditworthiness. Examples of nontraditional credit tradelines include electric, cable, and car insurance rental history.
