Kentucky VA Home Loan Approval Requirements with Collections on Credit Report

Collection accounts are account for a debt that have been submitted to a collection agency by the creditor generally due to nonpayment. Below are general tips and guidance on what DU will require when collection accounts are reporting on a borrower’s credit report.

Accounts that are reported as past due but not yet turned over to a collection agency must be brought current. These past due accounts are not considered collection accounts.

Kentucky Mortgage Requirements for Collections and VA Home Loan Approval
Any collection account required by DU to be paid must be paid prior to or at closing.
Isolated collection account does not necessarily have to be paid off for the loan approval.
Borrowers with a history of collection accounts should have reestablished satisfactory credit in order to be considered a satisfactory credit risk.
Lenders/underwriters should review the complete credit history and use sound judgment to determine if the collection account poses a credit risk to the borrower’s ability to repay the loan.
If the collection account is listed on the credit report with a minimum payment, then the debt should be recognized at the minimum payment amount
