Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

There are programs available that calculate student loans differently to make it easier for you to qualify.

I'm not sure what program you applied for that you were denied for.

I would need more details to determine how you can be helped.

If you would like help with this or have any questions you are welcome to get in touch with me.

I know of people who have had delay after delay from builder (or lack thereof)
The worst Sheetrock, trim and paint jobs and supervision I have ever seen.
Terribly dirty and no care given for floors put down-they never covered them and subs just tracked through on top of them every day-I have 'never' seen anyone leave a construction site like this.
Cant get a punch list for closing done -very indifferent. it will be a nightmare for them to ever get problems fixed afterward-very sad experience for paying so much money and sub par workmanship, and absolutely no caring by whomever the Site / Project manager is,

I bought a HUD forecloser last summer. It sat for 3 years before being offered up for sale. There was no rhyme or reason for it to take that long.

Fisherman answered:
I can tell you from my experience that if you are a first time homebuyer like myself, I highly recommend that you bring a friend who owns or owned a house before because your friend can tell you that inspectors don’t. The name of the inspection company is Allied Building Inspection Services, they operate in south Florida tri-county.

The home passed the inspection and now my insurance company is dropping me off if I don’t get a new roof. I am very disappointed that the roof passed the inspection and now I have to get a new roof. Yes, it wasn’t new roof and inspector pointed out that there are 3-5 years of life left. Inspection Company wanted me to sign a release form so I don’t file a complaint about the inspector Gilbert Doval and the inspection company and offered to pay me 3 years life of a new roof. But it is something to have it replaced in 3-5 years, so I can save money, and replace it just after I purchased a house which is most expensive thing we buy in hour life. Every roofer I called informed me that this roof should have never passed the inspection and they asked me if I used the seller’s inspector. It is very sad that Inspection companies can get away with things like that and customer gets stuck with huge bill.

Also you as a buyer are not protected by any laws and the inspectors make you sing a contract, which releases them from any liability from the inspection.

You really have to do your own due diligence and especially if you are a first time home buyer, ask your friend to come out with you or find a really good inspector who has your best interest when doing the inspection. Find an Inspector that has only your interest in mind, one that does not concern himself with getting more business from agents. One that will inform you of any issue what will harm your property, cost you money and headache.

It's a 1099C, not 1095, and the lender sends it to you (or may not). It is not something you can just get online or something. It is much to your benefit if they elect not to send you one as that is possibly tens of thousands of extra income to you and will bump you to a much higher tax bracket paying more in taxes.
