If one person has bad credit -->>Options

If one person has rough credit, you don't have to wait until their credit report gets fixed to buy a house.  You can do a non-owner occupied mortgage loan with a family member.  FHA allows us to do that - and recently, for folks with at least a 700 credit score, Fannie Mae will allow this as well.  The Conventional loan is a little more difficult, but one of the PMI companies recently made changes that make it easier.

If your income is included,they will want to check your credit scores also,as your income will be considered when repaying the loan!!!
