Non-Qm Loans

Non-Qualified Mortgage loans play a role in helping make the dream of owning a home potential to many people. These loans don't meet the rigorous financial standards of the Qualified loan. They have less restrictive conditions that allow Non-QM lenders to accept alternative income documentation to qualify borrowers for their mortgages or arrange loans with no income verification whatsoever.

Non-QM is the alternative to QM loans. The QM Qualified Mortgage brought to life by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) created minimum standards for mortgages, including the Ability to Repay (ATR) principles and a Qualified Mortgage in effect on January 10, 2014. Loans insured or sold by lenders to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are qualified mortgages. Unfortunately, these QM loans are not accessible to everyone due to the rigorous nature of the prerequisites in the loan application and review process, opening the door for Non-Qm Loan programs.
