Debt went up during loan process! need advice pls!!

My debt to income ratio went up on my credit file - I just got my experian notification. i am in the process of applying for 30Yr fixed, loan amount 310,000. I make $138k/year, FICO is 710, but I recently had to take over my daughters tractor payments to prevent repossession. she is ill. My debt went up by $3000/month (total debt $8,800). Will this hurt me much? I am worried to tell the LO! by sarulydduc-9515406 from Boise, Idaho. Oct 12th 2018 Reply

You are always instructed not to add new debt, or apply for debt while in the mortgage process. No one here can answer your question directly without a full look at your file, but it looks problematic. Contact your Loan Officer and tell them now. Because of required checks during the process, it WILL be discovered, so get a jump on how it effects you by talking to your lender.
