2 single individuals - Qualify for FHA?

Can two single individuals qualify for an FHA loan in California? For some reason I think you might have to be a married couple. Basically, we both want to live in the house but we just don't want to have to pursue conventional financing that require higher amounts of equity down as we want to utilize the 3.5% down. by garrett4g from Huntington Beach, California.

With Conventional and FHA financing, a non-married co-borrowers is not an issue. You may be confusing this with VA, which DOES require the couple to be married to use a co-borrowers income to qualify. The only person eligible to be a co-signer on a VA loan is a spouse.

Yes, you can obtain FHA financing. You can even have a non occupant co borrower for FHA, and you can have your down payment completely gifted from family or friends. You can contact me directly to give you more information. I am based in La Palma, CA. Chris GummersonBay Valley Mortgagebayvalleymortgage.com714-367-5126

Yes any number of people can own a home with an FHA loan as long as they are living in the home and that is their primary residence. I have a $5,000 first time home buyer grant that you might qualify for and this will help you spend less then 3.5% down and then this will give you more room for price increases as you look at homes. I would be happy to help you please visit me at www.fcmhomeloans.com (Gianni Cerretani-The Mortgage Godfather)

As the others have pointed out, this is not an issue with respect to financing. Since California is a community property state you may wish to ask your attorney about making certain each of your rights is protected.

No problem. I just closed a loan just like that. Two non married co-borrowers can qualify for FHA. Actually, they will allow up to 4 borrowers on one transaction. I can work you up a quote. I am licensed in CA. www.ApprovemeFHA.com
