Would a lender approve me for a loan if I borrowed the down payment from my retirement account?This is a divorce situation. The primary residence needs to be sold. My thought was to borrow from my retirement account, find a foreclosure to buy that will accommodate my needs. Once we are out of the house we could do a little fixing up and then sell. I would use my portion to repay my loan from my retirement account.December 12 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
