How Gifts Work On Conventional Loans…

Mortgage and Lending with Berkshire Lending, LLC

small-brett-pic4I wanted to quickly go over the rules for gift giving on Conventional loans.

First – Gifts to cover down payment and closing costs are allowed! (only on owner occupied homes)

However, a gift cannot be given by just anyone.

The following are allowable gift givers for Conventional loans…

• Relative, defined as the borrower’s spouse, child or other dependent or by any other individual who
is related to the borrower by blood, marriage, adoption or legal guardianship.

• Fiancé, fiancée or domestic partner.

• Domestic Partner: An unrelated individual who shares a committed relationship with the
primary wage earner, currently resides in the same household as the primary.


Note: Rates are very low now. If you would like to see if we can lower your rate, payment, or term please give me a call or shoot me an email.


That’s it for today!

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading!
