What Are Non QM Loans or Non Qualified Loan?

non qm loans

Non Qualified Mortgagees or Non QM loans have guidelines that are less stringent than Qualified loans. They can help borrowers who have had credit issues in the past such as foreclosures, bankruptcy, late payments or other isolated credit issues. These guidelines allow the lender to look at the entire loan picture for a borrower and not just their credit score and government underwriting matrices (DU or LP).


The Non-QM lending guidelines also look at the borrower’s income based on their type of employment and analyze their Ability to Repay (ATR) a loan according to its terms (based on many factors). This includes cash flows through personal and business bank accounts.
Self-employed borrowers typically have more complicated income structures that require different calculations than wage earners. This type of income often times does not qualify under the “one size fits all” conventional/government underwriting standards.
Priority Mortgage provides loans to borrowers that have the ability to repay their loans and that meet all regulatory lending criteria. These borrowers can now take part in the American dream of home ownership even though they may have had a life event that affected their credit or they have verifiable income that needs to be considered outside a standard guideline.
