You can go up to a 100% c/o with some lenders, however most are capped at 90%. So if you have that much equity in your home, then by all means this is very do able. You have a better chance with VA than you do with any other loan option. Hope this helps. ... more

This property is currently in escrow - so I am assuming that you are the buyer in that transaction and for that CONGRATULATIONS ! Please have your agent help you with this. You need to contact the County Tax Collector's Office ( they have an online form: or you can call them (see: Additionally, you will most likely receive a NATURAL HAZARDS DISCLOSURE REPORT, in which most likely you'll have a breakdown of the taxes for this property. The Mello-Roos information should be part of the property tax breakdown and will have telephone numbers for you to call to obtain additional information from the Mello-Roos holder (such as potential increase caps, length of time, and yearly amount). Be sure to supply this information to your lender IMMEDIATELY, and DEFINITLEY before you sign loan documents so that your impound account is set up properly, otherwise risk having your monthly payment jump as your lender makes adjustments months after the close of escrow to accomodate the mello-roos, and these later adjustments are much higher than if you were to have the impound account set up properly from the beginning. - Once again, CONGRATULATIONS on your home purchase !, Most Sincerely, Mario Gonzalez ... more

Hello Mr De Paz,

First Time home buyers usually are a good match for FHA financing since it offers more flexibility than conventional financing.
You would have a better chance to having your offers Accepted if you have a down payment. You may be able to get a house with 0 Down but you would have to compromise and may have less choices.
Often times a mortgage may end up being same or even less than what you are paying for rent.
For Tax advice you should contact your tax person.
Good Luck!

Hi Jenny,
I have seen a couple go that way recently. One of my clients had an issue with their tax return, but the lag was really getting certain docs from the IRS. I would definitely advise calling your loan officer and asking him for the real deal. Is this a dealbreaker? What is the actual ETA on a response? And you can always throw in the request to speak to his superior.
Another option to quell the sellers may be the offer to pay a per diem charge for every day past your scheduled close of escrow. You may then be able to negotiate for your lender to give you a credit to cover that charge, since they are the cause for the delay.

Good Luck- Hang in There!

Because lenders are understaffed and the workload has overwhelmed them. Since lenders have to review every case and render a decision on approving a short sale, the process can take forever. ... more
