Hi EditorialWe...>>>Does anyone *really* know, i.e. have first hand knowledge, of how spouses with vastly different credit scores might fare in applying jointly for a mortgage?<<<It does indeed depend on the lender and the programs.Worst case is you need both incomes to qualify, but the lender looks at all players' credit? Here's your solution;Do the loan in the name of the better credit holder only, do it as a "Stated Income" loan, so you can claim the income of both of you, but your spouse won't be on title.This is almost SURE to create some fun relationship conversations, huh?!?!If they aren't big enough to get over it (hey, THEY'RE the ones with the stinky credit, right?!), you can always promise to deed them onto the title at some point in the future *IF* they're good and treat you right!All the best!Dave DonhoffHome Finance USA
