how can I get approved for a loan?

Asked by sn922, Atlanta, GA Sat Aug 31, 2013

Hi I recently checked my credit score and they are at 698 and 705. I have 6k for downpayment. My downfall is that I have a judgement from 2003 and I have been working to try to come up with a settlement with them, but they are not cooperating with my lawyer and I. Can I still get pre-approved? what are my options?

Help the community by answering this question:



Companies or individuals file judgments for precisely this reason, it prevents the individual from being able to buy a home without resolution of the judgment. Apartment complexes are among the most notorious for doing this.

Because they know you are likely buying a home, they have substantial leverage. My suggestion would be to see if a payment plan can be arranged (with a decent down payment) to have the plaintiff remove the judgment. The monthly payment will be factored into your debt to income ratio so you need to keep that in mind as well.

I work with a number of borrowers who have similar circumstances so let me know if I can be assistance to you.

I would be more than happy to work with you!
The judgement would have to be settled before you can
get financing.

You may find an investor in your community who might be willing to work with you via seller financing. There are also hard money lenders available who may work with you. May I suggest looking in your local news paper or google private lenders or hard money lenders on the internet. This may be an option if you are not able to obtain traditional financing.

Greetings, I would recommend that you contact a loan consultant to consult with. Depending on the type of judgment and the length of time and there are some other factors that will be considered as well but their may be some options available for you. You definitely have the credit scores required to get loan approval, but each situation is accessed individually. It will be my pleasure to discuss this with you further and provide you with some direction. Feel free to contact me at the number below.

Thank you in advance,
