Flexible Credit Criteria. The USDA has developed an electronically based Guaranteed Underwriting System (GUS), to expedite loan approvals. GUS automates the manual underwriting process. Lenders can now electronically enter a home buyer's loan application information into the GUS online program and within seconds get a loan decision.The Suburban/Rural Development Loan allows for manual underwriting allowing us to consider the personal circumstances of each borrower and make good common-sense decisions regarding those who have demonstrated the ability to manage their financial affairs in a responsible manner. This is particularly helpful when a borrower has lagging credit scores despite a sustained recovery from past difficulties.
No Credit History
A lack of credit history reflected on a credit report is not a problem with the USDA Rural Development Loan. We can document the applicant's willingness to pay debts through third-party verification, copies of canceled checks, or other acceptable documentation for recurring payments or monthly obligations such as rent, utility, phone, and bills.
Credit Scores above 620, credit is considered acceptable. Documentation is streamlined as follows: No credit waiver required for derogatory trade lines except for Federal debt. No rental history required.Credit Scores below 620 full underwriting must be done. Exceptions are granted for extenuating circumstances.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining a USDA Rural Development Loan if at least three years have elapsed since the date of the discharge of the bankruptcy. An elapsed period of less than three years may be acceptable if the borrower can show that the bankruptcy was caused by extenuating circumstances that were of a temporary nature, were beyond the applicant's control, and have been removed (e.g., loss of job, delay or reduction in government benefits or other loss of income, increased expenses due to illness, death, etc.).

Collections, Charge-Offs, and Judgments
Under the USDA Rural Development Loan, collections must be paid in most cases, but we may make exceptions depending on the account type, the amount owed, and the cause of the collection. All judgments must be paid, and charge-off accounts showing balances must be paid.
