A number of things are obvious ...

(1) You don't read. Oh - you COULD, of course; but don't. You're still confusing "oversight" with an accountancy audit. Oversight would be to thoroughly examine random mortgages, from the application upward.

(2) You don't comprehend "credit worthy". This is a judgement call made by the lender. As mentioned before, I've bought real estate several times before - no down payment and no closing costs; in fact, that's how I bought my current home. (The "zero down" thing has been around for years - Bush wasn't the first to sign off on such a thing). Such loans were around under VA and FHA of the LBJ administration).

But in those loans I didn't apply for a loan that I clearly couldn't repay, and had a RECORD of paying my bills on time, and of not dishonoring any obligation. THAT made me credit worthy; there was little or no risk of my defaulting. And THAT's what the oversight committees should have found in all of the loan apps they looked at - or should have looked at.

That last little bit - about not dishonoring your word, and paying your bills as agreed - is a factor of INTEGRITY, which is something else you obviously don't comprehend.

          Until you man up, grow a pair of cajones and have the integrity to admit when you've been hit, I'm through with you. This entire exchange would have never existed had you not shot your mouth off... more

            I take responsibility for what I write, NOT what you read. I haven't been hit with anything but noise. If I post something that can collaborate your assertions and accusations then it exists. All you ... more
