Kentucky FHA Loan Requirements for 2019

 

How do I qualify for an FHA loan in Kentucky?

Kentucky FHA loans allow buyers with down payments as little as 3.5% to buy a home, and with many state-sponsored down payment assistance programs like KHC or Kentucky Housing Agency down payment asssitance program of up to $6000 currently to use for your own down payment, Kentuck borrowers using FHA loans can  can get the loan with zero money down.

They’re are other down payment assistance programs in KEntucky see below:

KACO Down Payment Assistance Program

KHC Down Payment Assistance

Louisville Metro Housing Grant

Covington Kentucky Grants and Northern Kentucky Grants to Buy a Home

AFR Down Payment Assistance

Chenoa Fund Down Payment Assistance

Kentucky FHA loans allow up to a  higher debt to income ratio than conventional loans which are restricted to 45 to 50% debt to income ratio, which is much lower  than most Kentucky FHA loans. That means more Kentucky FHa  buyers can qualify for a home loan in case if  your co-borrower cannot go on the loan due to credit issues.

Do I qualify for an FHA loan in Kentucky?

They’re are many FHA Kentucky loans requirements, which can be confusing. Some lenders are tougher and will not lend even though FHA will insure the loan. So check around on your FHA loan questions

  • Buy a property you will use as your primary residence
  • Your credit score must meet the minimum requirements of the FHA and the lender (FHA requires a minimum of 500 for 10% down and 580 for 3.5% down; however, lenders often require higher minimums)
  • The property you want to buy has to meet the FHA criteria and get approved
  • Must meet debt-to-income requirements
  • Clear Cavirs number
  • 3 years removed from foreclosure sale date
  • 2 years removed from Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
  • 1 year in Chapter 13 plan with good pay history and permission from trustee
