Alt-Doc Program

For the Non-Traditional Borrower

Alt-Doc (Alternative Documentation) is a mortgage program that qualifies homeowners by using non-traditional methods and/or non-traditional documentation to determine qualifying income.

This unique solution has distinct approval parameters for borrowers that have demonstrated the ability to repay (ATR) a loan but cannot qualify for a standard mortgage program. Borrowers looking to take advantage of alternative qualifying methods such as Asset Depletion can do so with lower credit scores (down to 660) and loan-to-values (LTVs) up to 90%.
