Kentucky USDA Mortgage Funds for 2021 Available.


Fiscal Year 2021 SFH Guaranteed Funds Now Available!


As of Sunday, December 27, 2020, funding for Rural Development’s Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program authorized by the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021”, is available.

Files in Process:

All files processed “Subject to Availability of Funds” have been obligated and the updated Conditional Commitments were generated by the Agency to remove the “contingent upon” language.
Lender receipt of the updated Conditional Commitment will signal the request has been successfully obligated by the Agency.

Loan Closing:

Once the loan has closed (including loans that were closed prior to the obligation of funds by the Agency), the lender may submit their request for Loan Note Guarantee along with a closing package.
Lenders using the Agency’s automated Lender Loan Closing (LLC) system will complete the lender certification electronically (i.e. no manual signature/date required).
For manually submitted loan closing packages, ensure the lender certification on the Conditional Commitment is signed and dated after the Agency’s obligation date (the issuance date on the updated Conditional Commitment). Use of the Lender Loan Closing system is highly recommended.

Things to look for in your  Rural Housing property search in Kentucky below:

  • Avoid homes in flood zones – RD is very restrictive for homes in flood zones. They will do them in flood zones just watch out for the costly premiums.
  • Avoid homes with cisterns – they are extremely difficult to get financed
  • Be aware that homes with wells and septic systems needed extra tests for contamination
  • Avoid homes with any income-producing activities such as working farms, detached buildings with offices or car lifts for auto repairs, or anything else related to income-producing activities.
  • Manufactured homes or doublewides must be brand new. No used mobile homes are allowed.
  • Must meet FHA standards on appraisals so watch out for this on older homes with crawl spaces. 
  • Must have a permanent heat source and no wood stoves as permanent heat sources
  • Homes that are in need of major repairs.

What is a Kentucky USDA Rural home loan?

What is a Kentucky USDA Rural home loan?

A Kentucky USDA home loan is a zero-dollar-down mortgage option provided by USDA’s Department of Rural Development.

This government-backed loan program comes in two types: direct loan, which is reserved for lower-income households and issued by USDA, and the guaranteed loan, which is reserved for low- to moderate-income families. The guaranteed loan is funded by private lenders, and USDA guarantees a portion of the loan against default.

Is a Kentucky  USDA loan more beneficial than a Kentucky conventional loan?

 The KY USDA home loan program is generally more beneficial to rural families than a conventional lending program, particularly for first-time homebuyers with lower- to median-level incomes.

Some of the benefits of Kentucky Rural Housing USDA loans include:
• zero down payment 
• competitive interest rates
• lower-than-average monthly mortgage insurance 
• relaxed credit requirements versus conventional loans
• no loan limits

How do I determine eligibility for a Kentucky Rural Housing USDA loanTo be eligible for a USDA home loan, borrowers must meet the program’s basic eligibility requirements. These requirements are relaxed compared to other mortgage options and are in place to ensure borrowers can make their monthly mortgage payments.

Here are a few of the basic Kentucky RHS USDA eligibility requirements:

• Income. Applicants must not have annual adjusted income greater than 115% of the median household income for the area. Check your county’s USDA income limit. This called compliance income.

• Credit. USDA’s guaranteed underwriting credit requirements. However, most lenders will want a 620 or preferably to get an Automated Approval 640 is the magic number in most cases. With regards to bankruptcy, 3 years is usually the date needed to lapse since your discharge. They actually require no minimum score but no lenders that I know of will do a no score loan.

• Employment. Applicants must have proof of two years of stable income and employment.

:  Income: They will take your gross monthly income and develop two ratios for you: The front end ratio, which is called your housing ratio, and then the back-end ratio or total debt ratio is the house payment plus the total monthly payments listed on the credit report. If you pay child support, this is included in the qualifying ratios but utility bills, car insurance, cell phone bills, water bills etc, is not included. Typically 28% is used for the housing ratio, and

Student Loans:  They are pretty tough on student loans and qualifying with your current student loan debts. They will make us use 1% of your outstanding balance on student loans, so sometimes this will cause the loan to get denied because your debt to income ratio is too high. If they are in an Income-Based repayment plan they will still make us use the .5% balance so keep this in mind. For example, let’s say you owe $50k in outstanding student loans, and your IBR plan calls for a $50 monthly payment. RHS will make us use $250, not the $50 IBR payment so you can see where this will cause issue on higher debt to income ratios on some loans.**********

Effective immediately for all Kentucky USDA Rural Housing Mortgage Loans.

If you are a Kentucky USDA Mortgage applicant who has student loan calculations will be changed to the following Fixed Payment Loans:

A permanent amortized, fixed payment may be used when it can be documented that the payment is fixed, the interest rate is fixed, and the repayment term is fixed.

Non-Fixed Payment Loans (i.e. deferred, income based, graduated, adjustable, etc.): The payment should be calculated as the greater of 0.5% of the loan balance or the actual payment reflected on the credit report. No additional documentation is required.

• Property location. Homes must be located within a rural area, as defined by USDA. Rural areas are any that have a population less than 35,000 depending on the area’s designation. Use this tool from USDA to determine if a specific address is eligible.

• Physical property. Homes must be the borrower’s primary residence, have direct access to a street, and have adequate utilities and water and wastewater disposal, among other things No working fams allowed or properties that income producing livestock or crops.

For those with lower incomes, a USDA direct loan provides greater opportunities for lending, as its credit and income requirements are more lax than the guaranteed loan option.
