Ability to see DTI changes in real time
Debts will be automatically excluded in DTI based on Fannie's DU exclusion logic.
Tip: Click the "i" next to the liability for more details.
There are three rules that will automatically exclude liabilities all of which have tool tips:
- Certain liability types have a 10 month unpaid balance requirement in order for the liability to be included in DTI.
Note: This is a monthly payment amount divided by the unpaid balance.
2. Certain liability types must have a greater than $1 balance to be included in DTI.
3. Certain liability types must have a greater than $0.01 to be included in DTI.
