Getting Approved for a Kentucky USDA Loan after bankruptcy, foreclosure, or short sale.


The Kentucky USDA Rural Loan program requires a minimum of three years from the date of a bankruptcy, foreclosure, or short sale to the borrower being eligible for a USDA Loan.  

For both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies the borrower must allow three years from the discharge date prior to submitting a new loan request.

 If the bankruptcy included a property, whether a primary residence or investment property, the earliest a new loan can be obtained is based on USDA Loan short sale and foreclosure guidelines.

When the borrower experienced either a short sale, foreclosure, or surrenders the property through the bankruptcy process, there will be a three year waiting period between the date of property transfer from the borrower to a new entity, and the date the new loan application can be processed.  

The most conservative stance by a Kentucky USDA Loan Underwriter for defining the date of the negative occurrence is the legal recorded transfer date, which is the date the property has been transferred out of the borrowers name and either back to the bank that holds the mortgage note or a subsequent home buyer. From this date the borrower will not be eligible for a USDA Loan for a period of time no less than three years.

However, one of my investors will allow a Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge date to be considered the date of foreclosure, provided the borrower didn’t re-affirm the mortgage liability.  This differs from when the property transfer date is recorded at the County Clerks Office. This is especially helpful in circumstances where the home owner legally removed their ownership rights to a property, through a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but the mortgage lien holder was slow to transfer the mortgage back into the name of the bank or sell the property.

If the foreclosed property was secured by a government backed mortgage loan such as a FHA or VA Loan, the property transfer date is no longer considered relevant.  The date that now becomes important is the date when the mortgage lender that held the mortgage note received compensation for their mortgage insurance claim through either The Department of Housing and Urban Development for a FHA Loan or The Veterans Administration for a VA Loan.  

The date of the mortgage insurance claim is identified through a CAIVRS search, which is required on all Kentucky Rural Housing  USDA Loans.

Collections Accounts for Rural Housing Loans in Kentucky

.

In an effort to minimize future risk of open collections left unpaid, the lender will

consider the following during the capacity analysis of the loan request, regardless of the

method utilized to underwrite:

1) Determine if the total outstanding balance of all collections accounts of all

applicants is equal to or greater than $2,000. Unless excluded by state law,

collection accounts of a non-purchasing spouse in a community property state are

included in the cumulative balance of all collections.

2) Remove all medical collections and all types of charge off accounts from the total

balance. Medical collections and charge off accounts must be clearly identifiable

on the credit report.

3) If the remaining outstanding balance of collection accounts are equal to or greater

than $2,000, any of the following actions will apply:

a. Payment in full of all collection accounts at or prior to closing.

b. Payment arrangements are made with each creditor for each collection

account remaining outstanding. A letter from the creditor or evidence on

the credit report is required to validate the payment arrangements. The

agreed upon monthly payment for each outstanding collection account

will be included in the borrower’s debt-to-income ratio.

c. In the absence of a payment arrangement, the lender will utilize in the

debt-to-income ratio a calculated monthly payment. For each collection
utilize 5% of the outstanding balance to represent the monthly payment.
