  3. Do you have judgments or collections on your credit report that need to be paid off or satisfied?
  4. Are you disputing any derogatory credit history or a debt reporting that is not yours on your credit report?

  6. Have you determined where your down payment is coming from and can it be documented?
  7. Have you had consistent employment for 24 consecutive months and can it be verified?
  8. Are the deposits on your bank statements over $200.00 sourced? If not can they be proven by additional documentation?
