Non Qualified Mortgage Loans

Non Qualified Loan (Non-QM Loan)

A Non Qualified Mortgage is any mortgage loan that is not compliant with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) existing rules on Qualified Mortgage. A qualified mortgage is a home loan that meets certain standards set forth by the federal government. Lenders that generate such loans will be presumed to have also met the Ability-to-Repay rule mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act.

The qualified mortgage rule, as defined by CFPB, is designed to create safer loans by prohibiting or limiting certain high-risk products and features.

What Makes a Loan a QM Loan?

  1. No Excessive Upfront Points and Fees, Points and Fees charged by a Lender to the Borrower must not exceed 3% of the total loan amount
  2. No Toxic Loan Features, No Interest-Only Loans, No Negative Amortization Loans, No terms beyond 30 years, No Balloons
  3. Limits on Debt-to-Income Ratios – General rule for Qualified Mortgage is 43%,

A Non-QM loan can help borrowers who have had credit issues in the past such as foreclosures, bankruptcy, late payments or other isolated credit issues. Non-QM loans also have underwriting guidelines that are different than the typical conventional or government type loans. Self-employed borrowers typically have more complicated income structures that require different calculations than wage earners.
