What is a Non-Warrantable Condo Loan?
A non-warrantable condo loan is a financing product designed specifically for the purchase of a non-warrantable condo.
What is a non-warrantable condo? This is a condo that does not meet the rules for Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
Non-warrantable condos are seen as riskier purchases, which is why not every lender is willing to work with buyers for these types of properties.
Who Needs a Non-Warrantable Condo Loan?
Anyone who is looking to purchase a non-warrantable condo needs a non-warrantable condo loan.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have a variety of restrictions in their rules. Here are some examples of scenarios where a condo would be non-warrantable:
- The condo is a condotel and/or allows short-term rentals.
- The current owner is involved in a lawsuit.
- The condo is still being developed.
- A large percentage of the units are occupied by non-owners.
- Manufactured homes are part of the property.
- There is a membership fee to reside in the property.
- A continuing care facility operates in the building.
Those are just some examples. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have other restrictions as well.
No matter why the condo you want to buy is considered to be non-warrantable, all that matters is the fact that it is. You cannot negotiate the status of the condo; you simply need to use a non-warrantable condo loan to purchase it.
