Question:

Can I take a no doc loan and are there different no income documentation loans?

Answer:

Yes, you may. Given that you are willing to take a no income documentation loan as a way to keep your privacy to a maximum level and not as a way to trick the bank or lender. No income documentation loans do not require W-2s, nor tax returns, or bank statements - no income or assets will be required to verify. All you need is show proof of employment / self employment.

Since no doc loans are based solely on good credit presented by the borrower, they will require a larger down payment compared to more documented loans. Expect a down payment of 20 to 25 percent for primary residences, or 25 to 30 percent for investment properties, depending on credit score. Also, those loans require fairly long credit history - such as several accounts listed on the credit reports for the last two years and often rental and mortgage history is also required.

There is a variety of no income documentation loans on the market - no doc refinance with cash out, no doc cash out with no seasoning, etc.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
