Students are studying their way through college – not building credit…
Once you have a job, and you want to purchase a house, how do you create credit?
FHA allows mortgage lenders to accept loans from those who do not have a credit score. We are required to “build credit.” This means that we need to verify alternative credit that you’ve paid. We will need at least 4 alternative sources – and they can include:
- Rent (keep your cancelled checks!)
- Telephone / mobile bill
- Electric Bills
For this reason – you want to have the leases in your name – or make the payments for your portion of the bills directly to the utility company. Start now keeping records – you’ll need at least 12 full months of credit history – even from an alternative source!
