Hi May,

You can start looking for a another property right away.

The question is, will you qualify? Do you know the reason why your loan was denied? Was the issue with you or the property, or some other reason that will not be an issue with your new property?

Good luck with your new search...

All the best,

Hello, if you are denied by a lender you should immediately ask for a denial letter from the bank on their letterhead just in case you cannot get financing and have to cancel the deal to get back your down payment or extend your contract.

Once you get the denial letter you should move on to another lender immediately, but before you do you should know exactly why the previous lender could not give you a loan commitment. Once you know you can ask the next lender if they can seriously help you with that issue and assist you with the loan.

If you need assistance getting a loan I can suggest some great mortgage lenders for you to select from.

If you need any help feel free to contact me.

Immediately. You should request a denial letter and request a full refund of your earnest deposit/downpayment. Before moving on it would be beneficial to you to understand the reasons why you were denied as most lenders have the same rules. It is most likely a debt:income ratio issue or a credit issue. Work to clear those issues up first so you will be successful in gaining a mortgage the second time around or you risk this happening again.

Dear May:

Your question is too vague because it all depends on the reason why your loan was denied in the first place. If you want contact me direct and with more details I can give you answers. If the reason you were declined was based on your qualifications, I may be able to give you some advice on how to fix the issue in the timeliest fashion. Either way, good luck!

May, you can start looking at any time. There are a few things you want to keep in mind. First, WHY was the loan denied? If its something that has to do with your credit, income or assets, you're likely to have the same issues anywhere else. If the reason you were denied has to do with the property, then obviously it's an issue that only pertains to that house only.

The second thing that you want to consider is that if your loan was denied and you are getting back the deposit from the seller's attorney, make sure you get your check, deposit it and keep a copy of it for the next mortgage application. They'll likely need to source & document any large deposits.

Again, no timeframe in general that applies for how long you need to wait before you can begin searching for a property again. I do suggest that you meet with your Loan Officer and discuss the reasons why your loan was declined. Perhaps it's something that has a fix to it and you can salvage the current deal. If you need a second opinion, I'm always available to meet in our Brooklyn offices. Good luck!

You should find out why the bank denied the loan, and try to correct the issue. There is no set time limit to start another process.
