Can I qualify for a Mortgage while on Workers Comp?I have been off work for a couple of months because of an on the job injury. They had to do surgery, and I am not ready to return to work yet, but will go back in another couple of months. In the meantime, I have an opportunity to purchase a house that I have always wanted. I currently own a house with a current market value of about $225k or possibly a little more. I owe about $110k so the rest is equity, and also own a vacation property outright worth over $100k. The property I want just came on the market for $250k, but can be bought for less. I know it will be sold before I can get back to work. I called my current lender, and they want me to go back to work & have 5 pay checks before they will do the loan. I think I can get closing posponed until Febuary, but I need to prequailfy to get a contract, then I could get the loan in Feb b4 closing. I also have about $2k a month income besides the workers comp (which is $1220 every other week). No other loans, cars pmts or bills except utilities and so forth.
