Kathy Burgreen answered:
This has nothing to do with the appraisal as suggested by asgj1978 below. Your situation has to do with the type of loan you are getting. You need to understand that some loans require the home to be habitable and functional before title transfers. Other types of loans are more flexible. Ask your lender if you can switch to a different type of loan that is more flexible with repair requirements. Plan B is to use a different lender. ... more

asgj1978 answered:
VA loans can be done 2 years after chapter 7, one year after chapter 13 and 2 years after foreclosure. They can also do a 0 down--but that would make your payment higher. Also, if your income does not need to be considered for the loan, perhaps having the loan just being in his name is an option?( you would/could still be on the deed) ... more

Without knowing all the details it is hard to know for sure, but your fiancé has great credit and your score is good enough to qualify. Your income seems strong, so it depends on what is on your credit and your debt to income. I would love to give you a referral to a local lender. Call or text me, 262-865-4282 ... more

A lot depends on "where" you are in the process. If you've signed a "dual agency" form, allowing the listing agent to be a dual agent (basically acting as the buyer's and seller's agent... sorta)... then it's likely too late to get the seller to pay a new agent that you add to the mix.

I'm not sure if the "customer disclosure agreement" is the same thing, or not. What does it say... you're the one who signed it.

All I have to say is that you better have a good down payment with a credit score that low.
Lenders may also not like the idea of loaning money for a condo because the monthly maintenance fees are sometimes more than the mortgage, making it harder to pay the bills.

Best bet is to find a small bank and get a pre-approval. Smaller banks are more likely to give you a loan.
