Private lenders are usually chosen over a full-fledged financial institute for a mortgage loan. One reason for this is that private lenders can approve loans much quicker than other financial institutions, such as banks. One of the prominent features is that hard money lenders do not check a borrower’s credit history. One of the fears that encircle the loan process is the inability to repay a loan, which affects both the borrower and lenders. While it might seem like this is the borrower’s problem, it also puts the lender in a difficult situation.
The Debt-to-Income Rule (DTI) helps the lenders to determine a borrower’s ability to pay. Unfortunately, some lending companies approve funds without checking the borrower’s financial situation, which usually puts them at the receiving end of financial losses. The Debt-to-Income Rule is calculated by the percentage of a person’s monthly gross income spent on paying debts, such as housing and credit cards. If it is not existing, there might be cases of over-borrowing, leading to an escalation of foreclosures.
However, many organizations have been against the Debt-to-Income Rule to make things better for both lenders and borrowers because potential borrowers cannot get a loan, even from a private lender. Similarly, many hard money lenders want the rule gone to save themselves so that they will not be liable to pay any penalties.
