540 or so. Her salary is not so great but credit scores close to 800. I have 12 negatives including 4 charge offs that are 3 years old that total 15000. Two student loans that are in collection totaling 7000. That accounts for a total of 4 negatives . I am in loan rehab so those 4 should go away in 3 months if I understand correctly. I also have a medical collection for 400 that i plan on disputing. Most of this is the result of a bad divorce. I am also showing a 135000 mortgage that belongs to the ex. Recently I finished paying a loan of 10000 off with no negatives and and have had an auto loan for 10 months with no negatives. What do I need to do to get myself in position to buy a home in 6 months? Either traditional or fha ? Debt to income is low- 15!year employment with the same company?

can you persuede your ex to refinance the mortgage and take you off of it? Find a good local lender and ask their advise. You may also want to talk to someone about how to take title with a significant other so that you are both protected.
