Student Loan Guidelines For Qualifying for a Mortgage Loan in Kentucky.


Loan type
Student Loan Payment Requirement
FHA
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
VA
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.
USDA
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
Income Driven
Repayment Plan
Use the student loan documentation to verify the actual monthly payment. Borrower
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

Period

or outstanding loan balance as shown on credit report.

 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

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.
