NO, there is no scam or fraud here. I had to sign letter of accupancy for the new home so it will be the primary resident. The reason I am buying a home in my name ONLY is personal and I don't feel like sharing it with the lender. My husband is free to do with the&nbsp;his house whatever he wants and&nbsp;I didn't say he is going to move to the new house. &nbsp;From what I read the laws of the fair credit act allows me to buy a house &nbsp;(or anything else) alone as long as I qualify on the basis of credit and income, and as long as I live in a common law state. Am I way off here?

A 4506 is another safety guard for the underwriter to make sure that the borrower is telling the whole story.<br/><br/>If your husband has a property and writes off the mortgage interest and property taxes as his primary residence, then the underwriter will question whether this new property will be a primary residence. You will most likely need to write a letter of explanation stating why you are buying a new home as your primary residence and it has to make sense to the underwriter why you are moving out of his property into this new one. (bigger home, better location, closer to work, closer to family, etc...)<br/><br/>If you are buying this new property to rent out but lying about it being your primary residence in order to get a better rate or lower down paymetn, then they will figure it out and turn you down. (which is EXACTLY why the 4506 is required)<br/><br/>If you are being honest, you have nothing to worry about.<br/><br/><br/> Thu, 07 Jun 2012 22:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Married-and-buying-a-house-in-my-name-only-but-worried/446018/ 2012-06-07T22:01:00Z
