Not good. Your best bet is for your fiancee to apply for a house he/she can afford with whatever debt he/she has. If you apply with him/her, the lender will use your score and the mortgage will not only have a higher rate, but higher PMI (lender insurance) and possibly a 2 or more year pre-payment penalty. You will be stuck either way--you keep a loan you don't want or you pay the penalty which will eat up some of the equity that you can't afford to lose. His/her score is high enough that he/she might be able to apply for a NINA (no income-no asset) loan-- the income or the assets are not verified. He/she will state on the application what they make whether the income is inflated or not depends on the applicant. BUT.....the income that he/she states he/she makes has to be within reason--like a cashier in a grocery store states that he/she makes $5000.00 a month will be sent back but a registered nurse may very well make that kind of money or more. If the income is stated just right, with the 720 score, you can buy the house, the mortgage will only be in one name but both of you will be on the deed. For the next few weeks after the house is bought--the low score needs to be improved--pay the collections, bring any accounts current and try to verify by your records that the payments the lender shows weren't paid, were paid. If nothing else, catch up any past due account and start paying these on time. In 3 months time, the scores will start going up. In 6 months the score should definitly be higher. In a year, if you want, you can refinance the mortgage and apply together. If you are not married, and to show that the other person has been paying on the mortgage--you both need to send in your own checks-1/2 pmt each. Then the one not on the mortgage, can show 12 cancelled checks sent on time (or 12 bank statements with the same amount taken out every month on time) when needed to add to his/her credit when applying for a loan or mortgage.

Can you get a mortgage with no money down with a credit score of 577?

No, you cannot get a mortgage with 0 down with a credit score that low. Sorry Yes you actually can. Under certain government loan programs you can get a 0 down mortgage with a low credit score. For instance I had a middle score of 525 and applied for a VA loan, which requires 0 down payment. I had to write a letter to the underwriter with a very good explanation as to why my score was so low. The underwriter contacted the VA and learned that they could approve the loan if they felt I had extenuating circumstances and was a good credit risk despite my low scores. I was approved for the loan with a good interist rate. So it can be done it just requires convincing the underwriter you are a good risk. Actually there are several ways that you can. The most popular is using an FHA loan coupled with a DPA (down payment asst. program). The money never needs to be repaid and you can qualify with a score as low as 550. You must verify income though.

What kind of loan should be used for a manufactured home on a basement with a score of 572?

It would be a subprime loan, which means it is less than good credit. If you were to purchase the home your interest rate would be much higher than prime credit. It will usually be 2-4 percentage points higher. If your credit score was 750+, your rate may be 6.5% or 7% with something between 550-575, you may get a rate of 9%-12%. At 7% monthly mortgage payment on $100,000 = about $665.30 At 10% monthly mortgage payment on $100,000 = about $877.57. Therefore you could be paying 212.57 more a month for your lower credit score. That would equal $76,417.20 over the life of a 30 year mortgage. Make sure that you raise your credit score as soon as possible and refinance your mortgage as soon as you get a higher credit score. Good luck! Henry
