How does a Downpayment Program work for an unmarried couple applying for an FHA loan?My fiance and I are currently looking to buy in central Ohio. Neither of us have owned a house before and we're a little bit confused about these downpayment assistance programs.We've decided on an FHA loan because we don't want to empty our bank accounts to get into a house...and it appears Ohio offers some pretty good downpayment assistance grants.However, my annual salary is higher than the income limits on all of these programs.If we're currently unmarried and applying for a joint mortgage, would she still qualify for the downpayment assistance even though I do not?October 03 2013 - Delaware00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
