Help is Here for Those Who Have Experienced an Economic Event!

FHA Announces:

Back to Work – Extenuating Circumstances

As a result of the recent recession many borrowers who experienced unemployment or other severe reductions in income, lost their homes to a pre-foreclosure sale, deed-in-lieu, or foreclosure.

Some borrowers were forced to file for bankruptcy to discharge or restructure their debts. Because of these recent recession-related periods of financial difficulty, borrowers' credit have been negatively affected.

Because of these economic events, FHA is now allowing borrowers who have experienced an Economic Event and can document the required events, to reduce the required waiting period.

Documented Events:

Certain credit impairments were the result of a Loss of Employment or a significant loss of Household Income beyond the borrower's control;

  • The borrower has demonstrated full recovery from the event; and,
  • The borrower has completed housing counseling.

Borrowers will have to show that they experienced an "economic event" and their household income fell by 20% or more for a period of at least six months. They must also demonstrate that they have fully recovered from the event, and have previously attended Homebuyer Counseling at least 30 days prior to the application, but no more than 6 months.*
