Lending guidelines require that commission income must have been received at least 24 months before it can be deemed stable enough to use as qualifying income. All mortgage lenders must follow the same HUD guidelines for FHA loans.
HUD states that:
"Commission income must be averaged over the previous two years. To qualify with commission income, the borrower must provide
Â· copies of signed tax returns for the last two years, and
Â· the most recent pay stub.
A borrower whose commission income was received for more than one year, but less than two years may be considered favorably if the underwriter can:
Â· document the likelihood that the income will continue, and
Â· soundly rationalize accepting the commission income."
If you have been receiving it for less than 12 months, then you would need meet the FHA guidelines above at this time.
