Non-Warrantable Condo Loans

Florida Non-Warrantable Condo Loans

Having trouble getting a loan or mortgage for a non-warrantable condo? Fidelity Home Group is experienced in offering non-warrantable condo loans in Florida. In Florida or anywhere else it can be difficult to find a non-warrantable mortgage expert since non-warrantable condos are not eligible for most loan programs.

A non-warrantable condo refers to a condominium unit or project that does not meet the eligibility criteria set by government-backed entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This can make it difficult to obtain a mortgage for the property as many lenders view it as high risk. The reasons for a condo to be considered non-warrantable can include:

  • New Construction
  • Lack of control over the HOA by the owners
  • High percentage of non-owner occupied units
  • Allowing short-term rentals
  • A single entity owning more than 10% of units
  • Any ongoing litigation involving the building owner or developer
