Bank Statement Program – Explained
Citadel Servicing offers a 24-Month Bank Statement Program.
Borrower Employment Types:
- Self Employed
o Must provide business license, Tax Preparer’s letter or corporate paperwork.
Citadel Servicing will accept Personal or Business Bank Statements. However, qualifying income will be calculated differently.
Personal Bank Statements: 100% of Deposits
Add all deposits for all 24 months and divide that amount by 24 to receive the monthly income amount we will apply as the borrower’s qualifying income.
Ex. 24 months deposits total = $200,000 / 24 = $8,333 a month income.
Business Bank Statements: 50% of Deposits
Add all deposits for all 24 months, divide by 2, and then divide by 24 to receive the monthly income amount we will give to the borrower.
Ex. 24 month deposit total = $500,000 / 2 = $250,000 / 24 = $10,333 a month income. * Only 50% is used because we have to assume the business has overhead.
