Non-QM loans are mortgages that don’t meet the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) requirements to be considered qualified mortgages. Generally Non QM is considered as “Alternative Income documentation” but Non QM loans could have standard income and asset documentation but the borrower may have had a recent credit even that prohibits them from qualifying for a standard Qualified Mortgage. We at Fidelity Direct Mortgage, LLC (FDM) are experts in Non QM Loans.
Borrowers Who are Self-Employed
While standard loan programs require tax documents to prove your self-employed income, FDM offers bank statement mortgages with no need for filed tax paperwork.
