Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Service (RHS) Section 502 Guaranteed program

 

Here are a few reminders about the Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Service (RHS) Section 502 Guaranteed program which provides very-low-, low- and moderate-income rural residents access to affordable housing finance options with little or no down payment or out-of-pocket costs.

• Eligibility Link – Access the USDA Home page, click here.
• Income – To determine eligibility of an applicant/household, click here.
• Property Eligibility – To determine whether the property is located in a designated rural area, click here.
o 1 Unit Properties Only
o No Bankruptcies or foreclosures in last 3 years

30 year fixed rate loan terms only, Purchase or refinance, If refinancing must be existing USDA home loan. No cash out allowed.
• Occupancy – Owner occupied only.
• Credit – Minimum credit score of 640 for all borrowers/
• Maximum Loan Amount – Maximum loan amount is $424,100 (without guarantee fee), can go up to 101% LTV with guarantee fee financed.
o High Balance USDA available for loan amounts $424,100 to $636,150 (without guarantee fee)
• Max DTI – GUS approved, generally 45% (front end sensitive)/ Manual 29/41.
• Guaranty Fee/Annual Fee – there is a 1.00%/ 0.35% (monthly).
• Down Payment – Down payment not required but if any cash to close, must be borrowers own funds. Gifts are not allowed.
• Interested Third Party Contributions – An amount of 6% of the sales price can be contributed towards closing costs.

The lender is responsible for determining which collection accounts
should be paid in full by the applicant prior to, or at, closing.
*Not a condition of mortgage approval.
Whether a collection account represents a greater risk
is the lender’s decision, regardless of the credit score.
The lender will document reasons for approving a loan request when
collection accounts remain unpaid.
*GUS TIP: The preferred method to record the lenders analysis/reasons for approving the loan
is to document their justification on the credit liability line under “notes” on the “Assets and
Liabilities” page beside each individual collection.
Rural Development
1) Determine IF: Total outstanding balance of all collections is
equal to or greater than $2,000.
2) Remove all medical collections & charge off accounts
from the total balance.
3) If the remaining outstanding balance of collections is
equal or greater than $2,000
Any of the Following Actions Will Apply:
a. Payment in full at or prior to closing.
b. Payment arrangements are made with creditors for collections. (A letter from the
creditor or evidence on the credit report is required to validate the payment
arrangements. Monthly payment for each collection included in TD ratio.
c. In the absence of a payment arrangement, utilize in the TD ratio a calculated
monthly payment. For each collection utilize 5% of the outstanding balance to
represent the monthly payment.

If you meet income eligibility requirements and are looking to settle in a rural area, you might qualify for the KY USDA Rural Housing program. The program guarantees qualifying loans, reducing lenders’ risk and encouraging them to offer buyers 100% loans. That means Kentucky home buyers don’t have to put any money down, and even the “upfront fee” (a closing cost for this type of loan) can be rolled into the financing.

Fico scores usually wanted for this program center around 620 range, with most lenders wanting a 640 score so they can obtain an automated approval through GUS. GUS stands for the Guaranteed Underwriting system, and it will dictate your max loan pre-approval based on your income, credit scores, debt to income ratio and assets.

They also allow for a manual underwrite, which states that the max house payment ratios are set at 29% and 41% respectively of your income.

They loan requires no down payment, and the current mortgage insurance is 1% upfront, called a funding fee, and .35% annually for the monthly mi payment. Since they recently reduced their mi requirements, USDA is one of the best options out there for home buyers looking to buy in a rural area.

A rural area typically will be any area outside the major cities of Louisville, Lexington, Paducah, Bowling Green, Richmond, Frankfort, and parts of Northern Kentucky.

There is also a max household income limits with most cutoff starting at $78,000 for a family of four, and up to $99,000 for a family of five or more.

2017 KY USDA Rural Housing Income Limits for Kentucky Counties Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

2017 Kentucky Rural Development Mortgage Guide

  • 30 year fixed rate only for Purchases and Existing USDA loans Refinances.
  • Zero down Mortgage loan with a loan limit of $424,000
  • Upfront funding fee is 1.0% and annual mi fee is .35% (very low compared to FHA)
  • Typically cannot own other real estate. There are exceptions to this.
  • You do not have to be a first-time home buyer in Kentucky
  • Can refinance existing USDA loan as long as lowering rate by 1% and can do without an appraisal. There are overlays to this by lenders.
  • Closing costs and prepaids can be paid by seller but must be put into contract
  • Closing costs may be financed into the loan up to the appraised value.
  • You will need two credit trade lines reporting at least for 12 months on your credit file. They don’t have to be open and active. Just reporting on your credit report.
  • All Guaranteed Mortgage Loans are ran through GUS. GUS stands for the Guaranteed Underwriting System. USDA and their underwriters use this system to pre-approve you. They review credit score/history, income, debt to income ratio and assets to determine your loan eligibility. If your credit score is below 640 or your debt to income ratio is over 45%, it will get a refer and you will find most lenders will not approve the loan.
  • Some lenders will do a credit score down to 600, but they will want a lot of documentation to overturn the refer and compensating factors for the lower credit score. They typically will need to verify rent for last 12 months, with no lates, cash payments are not acceptable, and debt to income ratios are set at 29% and 41% respectively. Reserves are typically helpful too on lower credit scores, so keep in that in mind, if you have money in a savings account, for a rainy day fund, this will help sometimes get the loan approved.
  • If you have access to 20% down payment you cannot use the USDA Program. Money in a retirement account does not account toward the 20% rule.
  • Properties must be located in an eligible area of Kentucky. Typically the large metro areas of Kentucky including the following: all of Jefferson County,  all of Fayette County, Owensboro, Paducah, Hopkinsville, Bowling Green, Richmond, Frankfort and Northern KY cities of Covington, Florence, Erlanger, Beechwood, Richwood are not eligible
USDA Eligible Areas In Northern Kentucky for Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Grant Counties
  • Independence
  • Burlington
  • Hebron
  • Highland Heights
  • Walton
  • Alexandria
  • Cold Springs
  • All Of Grant County, Pendleton County And Owen County

Search for Kentucky USDA Eligible Properties 

A property must be located in an eligible area in order to use a USDA loan to purchase a home.  Contrary to belief, Rural Development loans are not only for farms or very rural homes.  

Actually, a property with an operating and income producing farm is not eligible for these loans!

Kentucky USDA Rural Max Income Limits:

  • The total household income must be within the county limits for household size.  Typically a family household of 4 can make up to around $75,650  and a family of five or more  can make up to $99,850 for a household- Some KY counties allow for higher like Shelby County, and the Northern Kentucky Counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell allow $82,000 (household income of four) up to $108,250 (household income of five or more)

Check Your Kentucky County for USDA Rural Housing Income Limits

 

Some More Facts about a Kentucky USDA loan:


It’s a two step approval process.  The chosen USDA lender must first underwrite the file and get it approved based on the income, assets, and credit report submitted. Then, the lenders must submit to USDA for a “conditional commitment”.  This conditional commitment is the final loan approval paperwork you are looking for. 


Even though the lender may have approved the file, it still must go to USDA office in Lexington for an assignment to SFH underwriter for the final approval process. They typically are checking the appraisal and income at this stage. There have been instances where the lender would approve the file but USDA would not due to appraisal issues or income and job history. 
This is very rare instances, so keep that in mind when it comes to final loan approval. 

This two-step approval process usually adds 4-6 days to the final loan approval process, so keep that in mind when you are writing up your contract because it takes a little longer to close these loans vs FHA, VA, and Fannie Mae loans.

Well Test Treatments:  Properties with a well as the primary drinking source will require a well water test.  There are local labs to perform this test and the water must pass.

Septic Test: Sometimes they will require the septic tank to be inspected if called for in the appraisal report or home inspection. 

Older Homes: As a general rule, USDA does not like homes older than 100 years old. They will sometimes require a home inspection in addition to the mandatory appraisal on older homes.

USDA Loan After a Short Sale:  A short sale is not the end of the world.  So it is very possible to obtain a USDA loan if 3 years have passed after the short sale.  But a buyer would need re-established good rent and other credit history.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure:  If the mortgage debt that was foreclosed, was included in a Bankruptcy – then the USDA Home Loan waiting periods after foreclosure “waiting period” of 3 years, starts from the date of the discharge of the Bankruptcy.  Because it can take 6 months or more for Banks to process the Foreclosure, and transfer title, this is a tremendous plus.

Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Development Eligible Properties and Income Limits for 2017

usda-rural-housing-wisconsin-2

Search for Kentucky USDA Eligible Properties 

A property must be located in an eligible area in order to use a USDA loan to purchase a home.  Contrary to belief, Rural Development loans are not only for farms or very rural homes.  

Actually, a property with an operating and income producing farm is not eligible for these loans!

92e6b340d7ddfc1129f96e36194cf580

Kentucky USDA Rural Max Income Limits:

  • The total household income must be within the county limits for household size.  Typically a family household of 4 can make up to around $75,650  and a family of five or more  can make up to $99,850 for a household- Some KY counties allow for higher like Shelby County, and the Northern Kentucky Counties of Boone, Kenton, Campbell allow $82,000 (household income of four) up to $108,250 (household income of five or more)

Check Your Kentucky County for USDA Rural Housing Income Limits

 

Some More Facts about a Kentucky USDA loan:


It’s a two step approval process.  The chosen USDA lender must first underwrite the file and get it approved based on the income, assets, and credit report submitted. Then, the lenders must submit to USDA for a “conditional commitment”.  This conditional commitment is the final loan approval paperwork you are looking for. 


Even though the lender may have approved the file, it still must go to USDA office in Lexington for an assignment to SFH underwriter for the final approval process. They typically are checking the appraisal and income at this stage. There have been instances where the lender would approve the file but USDA would not due to appraisal issues or income and job history. 
This is very rare instances, so keep that in mind when it comes to final loan approval. 

This two-step approval process usually adds 4-6 days to the final loan approval process, so keep that in mind when you are writing up your contract because it takes a little longer to close these loans vs FHA, VA, and Fannie Mae loans.

Well Test Treatments:  Properties with a well as the primary drinking source will require a well water test.  There are local labs to perform this test and the water must pass.

Septic Test: Sometimes they will require the septic tank to be inspected if called for in the appraisal report or home inspection. 

Older Homes: As a general rule, USDA does not like homes older than 100 years old. They will sometimes require a home inspection in addition to the mandatory appraisal on older homes.

USDA Loan After a Short Sale:  A short sale is not the end of the world.  So it is very possible to obtain a USDA loan if 3 years have passed after the short sale.  But a buyer would need re-established good rent and other credit history.

Bankruptcy and Foreclosure:  If the mortgage debt that was foreclosed, was included in a Bankruptcy – then the USDA Home Loan waiting periods after foreclosure “waiting period” of 3 years, starts from the date of the discharge of the Bankruptcy.  Because it can take 6 months or more for Banks to process the Foreclosure, and transfer title, this is a tremendous plus.

KENTUCKY  USDA LOAN GUARANTEED RURAL HOUSING REFINANCE FEATURES

  • Loan must be secured by the same property as the original loan. The original loan must be Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) or USDA Section 502 Direct only. The Program may not be used to refinance FHA, VA, or other government or conventional mortgages.
  • Term of the new loan will be 30 years.
  • Interest rate of the new loan cannot exceed the interest rate of the loan being refinanced. However, the interest rate of the new loan does not have to meet the interest rate requirements established in RD Instruction 1980-D, §1980.320 Interest rate.
  • Property must be owned and occupied by the borrowers as their principal residence.
  • The guarantee fee is 1.00% of the total principal obligation of the new loan.
  • The 1.00% guarantee fee may be always financed into any GRH refinancing transaction. As usual, borrowers may finance other closing costs and fees up to 100% of the current appraised value. However, it is possible for the loan-to-value (LTV) of the new loan to reach 101% if the 1% guarantee fee is financed. Loans may exceed 100% LTV only to the extent that the excess represents a financed guarantee fee of no more than 1.00%.
  • Total household income cannot exceed the moderate level for the area as established in RD Instruction 1980-D, Exhibit C.
  • GRH refinance loans are permitted for properties in areas that have been determined to be non-rural since the existing loan was made.
  • Applicants are not eligible to receive “cash out” from the refinancing transaction. However, applicants may receive reimbursement from loan proceeds at settlement for their personal funds advanced for eligible loan purposes that are part of the refinance transaction, such as an appraisal fee or credit report fee. At loan closing, a nominal amount of “cash out” to the applicants (beyond reimbursement of these “prepaid” items) may occasionally result due to final escrow and interest calculations. This amount, if any, must be applied to a principal reduction of the new loan.
  • Subordinate financing such as home equity seconds and down payment assistance “silent” seconds cannot be included in the new loan amount. Any existing secondary financing must be subordinate to the new first lien.
  • Maximum loan amount cannot exceed the balance of the loan being refinanced, plus the guarantee fee, and reasonable and customary closing costs, including funds necessary to establish a new escrow account.
  • Unpaid fees, such as late fees due the current servicer, are not eligible to be included in the new loan amount.
  • eligible areas on USDA Rural Development’s web-site at:
  • http://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.govhttp://eligibility.sc.egov.usda.gov

 


For commitments issues on or after October 1, 2016:

USDA charges the lender, who can pass the charge to the borrower, a one-time up-front cost, which is known as a Guarantee Fee. The Guarantee Fee can be financed in addition to the maximum base loan amount. The Guarantee Fee is calculated as follows as of October 1, 2016:
PURCHASE TRANSACTION CALCULATION:

  • 1.00% of the TOTAL loan amount for commitments issued on or after 10/1/16.
  • Calculation: Base loan amount divided by .99 = Total loan amount (round down to nearest dollar). Total loan is then multiplied by 1.00% to get the amount of the guarantee fee.
  • A Guarantee Fee & Annual Fee (monthly) Calculator can be found on the USDA training resource website.

CALCULATION FOR REFINANCE TRANSACTIONS:

  • 1.00% of the TOTAL loan amount for commitments issued on or after 10/1/16.
  • Calculation: Base loan amount divided by .99 = Total loan amount (round down to nearest dollar). Total loan is then multiplied by 1.00% to get the amount of the guarantee fee.
  • A Guarantee Fee & Annual Fee (monthly) Calculator can be found on the USDA training resource website.

ANNUAL FEE:
All loan transactions will include an annual fee of .35%

 

 

 

REPAYMENT RATIOS REFINANCE FOR BOTH GUARANTEED LOAN TO GUARANTEED LOAN AND DIRECT LOAN TO GUARANTEED LOAN:

INTEREST RATE
  • Interest rate of the new loan must be a fixed rate.
  • The interest rate must be lower than the existing loan to be refinanced.
  • Funded buy down accounts are not permitted.
HOUSEHOLD INCOME Total adjusted income for the household cannot exceed the moderate level for the area as established in HB-1-3555.
LOAN SECURITY
