Kentucky Rural Housing USDA Guarantee Upfront and Annual Fee Changes October 2016

 

Human hand with a pot watering growing money tree
Good News for Kentucky First Time Home Buyers Using the USDA Rural Housing Loan Program!

 

Kentucky RHS USDA Mortgage Insurance  Changes Below and Important Dates to Keep in Mind that could affect your loan closing and approval!

On October 1, 2016, both the upfront guarantee fee and annual fee for purchase and refinance loans will decrease. We are reducing the upfront guarantee fee from 2.75% to 1%, and the annual fee from .5% to .35%. The Guaranteed Underwriting System (GUS) will be updated on August 31, 2016, to allow lenders to select and underwrite using either the FY16 or FY17 fee schedule.

Due to the large volume of loan applications received daily, as well as current turn times, Kentucky will begin accepting applications using the new FY17 fee schedule on September 27, 2016

Applications using the new FY17 fee schedule submitted before September 27, 2016 will not be processed before October 1, 2016.

 September 27, 2016 will be the last day Kentucky will accept applications using the existing FY16 fee schedule. This will ensure all of these submissions are reviewed by the Agency prior to October 1.

 

 Most are familiar with USDA Rural Housing Loan Program  being a great no money down program available and it is not just for Kentucky first time buyers

But starting with commitments on October 1, the funding fee that is financed is going from 2.75% to only 1%!  On a $100,000 loan, a buyer saves about $1750!  In addition, the annual fee (like PMI) reduces from .5% to .35% which lowers the monthly payment by $15 a month on an $100,000 loan amount.

502 Direct USDA Loan in Kentucky:

NMLS 57916

 

There are two types of Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Home loans available to rural Kentucky Home buyers through Rural Development:

Direct homeownership loans and guaranteed home ownership loans.

Let’s first look at the 502 Direct USDA Loan in Kentucky

502 Direct USDA Loan in Kentucky:

 

With a Kentucky  Direct Loan 502, the applicant applies directly to the USDA office serving their location in Kentucky. There are about 13  different locations . They  lend the money direct from USDA , 100 percent financing, for the low rate currently at 3 percent on a 33 year term.

For a direct home loan, the purchase, construction, repair and rehabilitation of a single family home in rural areas must be used for the applicant’s permanent residence. “For manufactured housing, only new construction can be funded,” he explained.

Credit scores of 640 or greater are typically acceptable with a minimum number of trade lines (2 usually for 12 months can be opened or closed) that have been open and active.

No down payment typically is required- Loans may be up to 100 percent of the appraised value. Homebuyer education is required prior to closing for the Direct USDA Loan 502 program

 

Mortgage payments are based on what the applicant can afford to pay. USDA offers payment assistance/subsidies to make it affordable. When you go to payoff the USDA Direct loan, you may incur a subsidy recapture fee. KY RD Offices_August2014.jpg 

Student Loans and their Impact in the Total Debt Ratio

Recent updates to the 3555 Handbook intended to simplify guidance for the delivery of the guaranteed loan program have caused some misperception in regards to total debt ratio calculations, specifically in the subject of student loans.  The Agency is working on revisions to Chapter 11: Ratio Analysis; however, we want to further clarify the subject at this time.

Total debt includes monthly housing expenses plus any other credit obligations incurred by the applicant.  Student loan payments must be included in the calculation of the total debt-to-income ratio and captured under liabilities on the application.  Student loan payments should be treated as described below:

Fixed payment loans:  A fixed payment may be used in the debt ratio when the lender retains documentation to verify the payment is fixed, the interest rate is fixed, and the repayment term is fixed.  There must be no future adjustments to the terms of the student loan payments.

 

Non-Fixed payment loans:  Payments for deferred loans, Income Based Repayment (IBR), Graduated, Adjustable, and other types of repayment agreements which are not fixed cannot be used in the total debt ratio calculation.  One percent of the loan balance reflected on the credit report must be used as the monthly payment.  No additional documentation is required.

Kentucky Student loans that are currently in repayment must have documentation to verify the current payment due (e.g. letter from a loan servicer, online account verifications, or other official written documentation). The credit report alone is not acceptable documentation. Verifications are valid for 120 days, 180 days for new construction. A fixed loan payment will not adjust over the repayment term. The payment listed on the documentation may be used for debt ratios.

 

Graduated repayment plans typically start with low payments and then adjust every 12 months or more. Regardless of when payment adjustments occur, lenders must utilize the highest payment documented on the repayment plan agreement in debt ratios.

 

Deferred student loans that are not in repayment status may use an estimated payment of 1% of the loan balance reflected on the credit report, or a verified fixed payment provided by the loan servicer to document the payment that will be due once deferment ends.

 

Kentucky Student loans with Income Based Repayment (IBR) plans of $0 are not eligible to be used in the debt ratio. The borrower must provide documentation of the IBR payment plan from the loan servicer. The following apply:

 

  • If the IBR payment is less than $100 and 1 percent of the total loan balance is more than $100, a minimum payment of $100 must be included in the debt ratios.
  • If the IBR payment is less than $100 and 1 percent of the total loan balance is less than $100, a minimum payment of 1% of the loan balance must be included in the debt ratios.
  • If the current IBR payment is over $100, use that payment amount in the debt ratios.
