Why do we choose Bank Statement?

Even though most home owners can easily qualify with full documentation for a conventional mortgage, many still don't fit the Fannie and Freddie guidelines when it comes to the lending requirements. Luckily, Non-QM loans and bank statement income documentation are great solutions for these non-traditional borrowers. 

Self-employed individuals have the allowance to write off many business expenses under the IRS Tax Code. Writing off business expenses from their gross income help the borrowers significantly reduce their tax liabilities, and sometimes it shows an overall loss or negative income for the year. Bank Statement Non-QM Loan will be able to help these borrowers to qualify for a mortgage without showing their tax returns and use their bank statements to show the true cashflow of their business.

Who is this program designed for?

This program is designed for borrowers who are self-employed and would benefit from alternative loan qualification methods. Bank statements may be used as an alternative to tax returns to document a self-employed borrower’s income. As proof of income, both personal and/or business bank statements are allowed.

At least one of the borrowers must be self-employed for at least 2 years to qualify for this program. A minimum ownership of 25% in the business is also a prerequisite. This is a standard requirement to determine if the borrower is a self-employed borrower. In agency loans, we always refer to K-1 or Schedule G; while for Non-QM loans, we always need a CPA letter to verify the actual ownership.

Usually, the lender would calculate the qualifying income by taking the average value of bank statement deposits in 12 or 24 months, then multiply by a standard expense factor. That should be the borrower’s qualified income for this program.

As for the expense factor, many Non-QM investors may have a standard ratio like 50%. Though this is also our standard requirement, but if your  CPA can provide a letter with appropriate reasons, we may take considerations for a flexible expense factor due to the nature of the business has minimum expenses.
