So, here's the scoop.  Someone tell me if I'm looking for something that doesn't exist.

 

Need a low doc/no doc HELOC or Home Equity Loan for DW, her credit score is around 640, BK 2+ years ago.

 

We've owned the house about 6 months.  Appraised value is around $150K, we have no mortgage, but paid $50K for the house, as at the time it was a fixer upper.  Now it's fixed up.

 

Looking to pull maybe 20-50K in equity out of it.....I'm the one with the paycheck but her credit is better than mine.

 

Is there a prayer here?

 

thanks,

While I would think a bank would be happy to loan on a home without a mortgage, the part I wonder about putting the loan in her name when you have the income. Is the house in both names on the deed? I know when DW and myself did our HELOC the CU wanted both names on the loan since both names are on the deed.

I am in a similar situation (looking for a HELOC on a home I own with no mortgage). I recently had a conversation with my CU who told me that they don't really look at credit ratings so much for HELOCs. They look at amount of equity you have in the home, & your ability to repay (wages/income). 

 

For example, it sounds like you have $150,000 in equity. They would loan you up to 80% of that. The credit score was less important, she said. 

 

Hope that helps.
