there cannot be a downpayment law but
I read the same rumor. Each bank
creates its own lending policies.

YOU can get 100% financing
from some lenders and only 75% loans from
others; based on credit and employment
history, etc.

you can put 0% down…. but you will have high monthly payments… 20% is always good

In today’s market, it is exremely difficult to get a “No Doc” loan if you do not have 20% for down payment.

Can you find one with less? Sure. But odds are you will need to contact several (10 or more) lenders and when you do find one, expect to pay *at least* 2% higher than comparable loan with documented income.

Ignore all of the answers that tell you to contact a lender via a yahoo or gmail address. Any legitimate lender will at the very least spend the $10 it costs to register a domain. These emails are notorious for being avenues for identity theft and mortgage fraud.

Home loans are now available to many people for whom they would have been out of the question just a few years ago. You’d be in much better shape to bargain for better interest rates if you had a more impressive credit history, but if the house you want is the deal you believe it to be, a bad credit home loan can stillinterest rates, get bigger returns on the money loaned, and the borrowers get a homes in which to build equity, and chances to restore their credit records so that the first bad credit home loans they take will also be the last!

For stated income….I would say 20%

I’m a realtor in so-cal. Good luck. The last time I saw a stated income loan was over a year ago.

I saw your question I have decided to help people out due to the fact that I myself has been scammed twice by fake lenders in my search for a loan but at last I got a reliable lender that gave me the loan($60,000 USD) that I was in dire need of.
