Non-Warrantable Condo Loan
Even though they’re generally less expensive, securing a condo loan can sometimes be more difficult than a mortgage for a home. This is because the value of a condo is dependent on a number of other factors like the financial stability of the development. If a bank determines that the development is at risk in any way, they deep it non-warrantable and try to stay away from providing any loans for prospective buyers. A bank could decide this for several reasons:
- The development is stuff under construction
- The developers have not yet turned over control to the Home Owners Association
- The development allows short term rentals
- Someone owns more than 10% of the units in the development
- The development contains more than 50% rental units
Plus, if the development is in the middle of any kind of legal action, even if the development is the one suing someone else, like a contractor, the bank might decide to call the whole thing non-warrantable and refuse to provide any condo loans to anyone.
