Two years of tax returns is not always required. Example - buyers who just graduated college and just started their full time career. Lenders will use their college status to count for tax returns. In this example, lenders require that recent grads have credit scores of 620 or higher and they receive W2 wages (not self employed).

As for VA and USDA loans, lenders are allowed to set their own guidelines (overlays) in addition to government requirements. This is because lenders are the ones taking the risks.

My wife and I are both brokers and I have been licensed since 1988. We used Equator when we were doing REO's for B of A/Countrywide. We paid $400 for premium agent designation and received lots of emails notices about prospective REO listings. A year later, after responding to hundreds of notices, we have been assigned zero properties, and our REO experience is superior to most agents we know. Then they auto-charged our credit card for renewal, which we did not authorize.

BE VERY AWARE THAT THIS IS A SCAM BY EQUATOR AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE ANYTHING. YOU WILL SPENDING MONEY FOR NO BENEFIT WHATSOEVER.

When we went to their site do demand a refund, it was and still is down. We will be instructing our bank that this is a fraudulent charge.

It might be time to consult a real estate attorney. Bring your contract. Good luck.

Yes. Call the agent's managing broker and make your request. Bring any documentation that you have, to the conversation, and be calm and collected (not loud and angry)... I'm sure the managing broker will make sure that another agent is assigned for the balance of your transaction.

I'm very sorry you're experiencing this.

Instead of asking your question here, you need to contact your realtor, title company and lender immediately and explain your situation. Nobody online can advise you on what to do.

The dumbest part of the credit check issue to me is, if I had decent credit, I'd use the deposit money I've saved and buy a house! But... since my prior circumstances has caused me to have bad credit I have much fewer 'decent' choices of homes. Not to mention if you look at my rental history, I've never missed my rent or been behind on a utility, I just need a larger place to live for personal reasons. THAT is the 'history' I think should matter! ... more
