Home Affordable Mortgages For Self Employed
by Jay from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma USA
Ask Kate about Home Affordable Mortgages For Self Employed: Hi Kate, I have 1099 income and am being Punished for IT!! I am a Real Estate Broker in Oklahoma, and I have made my primary home payment above all others.
I have 9 rental properties and managed to juggle the payments and keep them / get them current throughout the mortgage crisis without ANY help from any lenders.
Now I want HARP Re-fi my Primary Fannie Owned mortgage to a 15 yr at 3.85% ish, and I'm being told I can't due to the credit hits I took.
But the Reg Z says credit is NOT a factor, but yet they disqualify me on it, and ALSO state that since I am 1099 income that it is an Automatic No-Qual!!!
Kate Answers: Home Affordable Mortgages For Self Employed
Dear Jay, Automatically denied for a HARP refinance due to self-employment?! And I thought I'd heard everything!
Perhaps the Servicer in question is not interested in participating in HARP? Remember, you are no longer limited to one lender, according to the Home Affordable website.

Of course if you have been late on a mortgage in the last 12 months, that may create a roadblock.
Home Affordable eligibility question: "Are you current on your mortgage payments? “Current” means that you haven’t been more than 30-days late on your mortgage payment in the last 12 months."
