When your condo doesn't meet conventional loan requirements.

Condominiums can be flagged as non-warrantable for any number of reasons-the project has yet to be completed, too many units are occupied by non-owners, one person or entity owns more than 10% of the total number of units, or the developer has not turned over control of the HOA to the owners. Whatever the reason, when this happens, getting a loan to purchase a condo on this property can be very difficult.
